strawberry generation expects everything served on a silver platter. Sadly, this is the trend and there's no sign of reversal
I'm noticing this too. I am just hoping with the right guidance from parents, they will be able to stand on their own and be independent..

Because parents are too protective that's why they can't handle things on their own

People around your children can bring different influence to them depending on what kind of people they are. It's not just how children are being raised. But how you raise your child absolutely has a huge impact to them.

to be fair, these "strawberry generation" faces much more stress in school than our generation, school life was much simpler back then ..

I agree! During our time, pressure is not that strong.. Instead of teaching kids the right way, they're now pressured to learn. :slapshead:

This is why we must monitor our own children mood and behaivour and make sure ample communication is provided. It is really the worst to see your loved ones gone. Some cant even recover from that forever.

I check my kids behavior every now and then and make sure we have an open communication. Being there for them can mean a lot.

agree!!! Simple communication changes everything. We will never know what they are going through unless we talk to them. Stress and pressure are everywhere no matter what, let's not add more to it for them.

I agree. Because nowadays parents are educated, so sent the kids to a lot of enrichment, peer pressure etc. So a lot of teaching has to start from home. Like making them do housework, take up their own responsibility. When they receive setback or upset from outside, have to find out why instead of straight away agree with them. A lot of things needed to be done.

Last time my company used to hire interns, their self-entitlement is so strong. And after their work, they went out to play, but the parents called us up and asked why are they working so late. One is even worse, MIA from work, we failed him, the lecturer says cannot fail him. *faint*

So .. speechless.
