World's Strictest Parents - Singapore style

I am glad our kids are not like these angmor teens.

Interesting videos! Seems like the parenting styles of Asian and angmo parents are as different as chalk and cheese.

But nowadays, I see more kids who are so spoilt compared to those who are well-mannered and respectful. Even saw kids slapping their mothers or fathers when they do not get what they want. And their parents didn't punish or scold the kids for slapping them.
My neighbour, next door, has a young daughter who screams when she wants anything, if she didn't get it fast enough, she'll scream louder and louder until she gets it. Parents and grandparents never scold or raise their voice at her.

Just finished watching the videos. Interesting. I guess Singaporean kids are generally more motivated.

I like the messaging of what I watch in the clips.

Hi, I believe that our own upbringing play a large role in our parenting style

Angelight,

I think it's not totally about all asian or angmor, because the clip below is my favorite and the strict parents are also angmor ( Irish ) !

Can you imagine there is a series in Australia for these problematic teens ? There must be lots of this similar situation for a long running series like these. Maybe they need to implement NS draft, to instill discipline :evil:

But it does show that wayward kids around that age can still be reformed ( in different degrees of course ). I particularly like the way the Irish father said " There is no such thing as a bad child..." :salute:

The child is as good as the parent... so IMHO, no matter how strict or not you are, your children will be a reflection of how you live your life.

Live well, choose wisely, change for the better... take action now.

I just watched the videos. Very interesting concept.

Actually, it's not that the parents are strict. It's that they manage to keep cool and enforce discipline even when the kids are terribly disrespectful, deceitful, and all kinds of horrible things.

I'm strict too, but I need to learn to keep my cool!
