Was reading the Bishan JC thread and made me recall the elderly like to say this:

I tell you ah, last time before the sun is up, I already tapping rubber at the plantation. Where got so lucky like you. Sleep until the sun shines on your butts

and hubby likes to say this to the boys:

I tell you, I already washing my own sch shoes every Sat and made my own breakfast plus boiling water in the kettle for your grandma to brew coffee for your grandfather. You still let your mother do all these???


Seriously, people need to remember the people now are not like them decades ago.

Like!

DH has the same thinking like you. He also said last time CCA was not demanding and school works were not heavy.

Sounds like all daddy same mentality. My DH told his kids why need electronic dictionary - paper dictionary will do as well. He nagged :rant: that I spoilt them by buying electronic dictionary for them :frustrated: . I finally "buay tahan" and told him if his daddy were to tell him no need calculator can use abacus to do all his school maths, will he accept it? :razz:

We must move with the era - if there is an easier way or change of way of doing things, why are we sticking to the old mentality?

I guess these days it is more a matter of 'is there a need for them to do all these' rather than can or cannot do.

I was ironing my own school unis, washing my own school shoes, changing my own bedsheets and washing up after dinner when I was 10yrs old. Is there a need for kiddos to be doing that at 10yrs old now? I guess not. I had to because even, though mum was a SAHM, there was a younger sis whom she has to take care of so we all pitch in to help here and there.

Now I have a live in helper, there really is no need for kiddos to be doing all these themselves. Of course certain stuff like making their own beds, putting their laundry away or sorting their own dirty laundry into the correct baskets, all these they still need to do but not to the extent of what I had to do. But if I do not have a live in helper, they may have to do more than I ever did as a kid. I do not believe in running myself haggard to make life easy for them.

When elder boy first expressed interests in SUTD, I went to research on the residential area. In the end, I decided it is better for me to let him stay in the hostel or get a driving licence and hubby buys a 2nd hand car for him. Changi is too ulu for me :rotflmao:
