  • Guys, are you done testing the green screen?

  • Guys?

  • mmm, spicy

  • Welcome to the Kampong News Station, with me, Dick Loong

  • Tonight, with rising pressures on our Singaporean children

  • more and more parents are opting to send their kids

  • to tuition centres, so that they can stay on top of their class

  • with even the Prime Minister warning against an overreliance on tuition,

  • the question remains

  • Do children have time to be children?

  • I don't see what's the big deal

  • I didn't go to school

  • why can't they be perfect, like me?

  • now we're here with self-professed kiasu parent, Madam Ling Chope Seet

  • Now she placed her son in tuition when he was just 3 years old

  • Now, Mdm Ling?

  • That's right ah

  • My son ah, is fluent in English, Chinese and Latin

  • and Spanish, and also Java Chip

  • Javascript

  • He's very clever you know?

  • Last week, he wrote the theory of rela -

  • relativ -

  • relativity!

  • In crayon!

  • Blindfolded somemore!

  • Why did you make him go to tuition at such a young age?

  • Parents "nowsadays" are very busy you know?

  • I'm a good parent!

  • I'm trying to make sure he pass his exams!

  • You mean he's studying for his PSLE?

  • My dear, he's no longer taking his PSLE

  • Now he's taking his PhD

  • In molecular science

  • I choose one

  • I closed my eyes and I took and I choose

  • That's amazingly kiasu!

  • I tell you ah

  • You people "nowsadays" you all don't know

  • it's the kiasu spirit that got us to a First World Country

  • Eh this one on TV right?

  • Anybody want to employ my son

  • felel free to call me

  • 6555 8888

  • Call ah call ah!

  • Do you think Singaporean parents are too busy to teach their own children?

  • Yeah, I think many are, because of the high cost of living

  • Some of my kids from St. John

  • I see that they

  • their parents didn't really spend much time, or quality time with them

  • To them, its tuition, and tution

  • and tuition, enrichment classes and so on?

  • Uh..

  • And because of those, do you think that the kids in Singapore

  • lack in certain areas such as

  • um, you know, EQ skills

  • like communication skills, you know, expressive skills, and so on?

  • I think sometimes it's abit too much in my opinion

  • because you know, sometimes you still have to study at the same time

  • on top of this enrichment class

  • so it's abit taxing on the children

  • Yes, majority of Singaporeans now, especially kids nowadays

  • they do lack of uh...

  • I mean compared to overseas

  • I don't think parents are like that

  • Especially Caucasian kids.

  • You can see even in the Singapore environment

  • they don't send them to enrichment classes that often

  • they are finding a balance now

  • I think the youth is finding that's important too

  • as they go along

  • Street-wise I think Singaporeans are about 90% smart

  • I won't say for the rest

  • Now I understand your company has a unique perspective on toddler tuition?

  • What?

  • Oh.

  • It's definitely given them a leg up on the competition!

  • They're smarter and more in demand

  • More so than foreign talents!

  • Our company has..

  • Recently hired a toddler!

  • He's our CEO

  • So, sir, would you say that toddler tuition has real world applications?

  • There you have it

  • The shocking truth

  • You are fired!

  • What?

  • But, but Sir, I have a wife

  • and two Filipino mistresses to support

  • Just go

  • Win liao lor you all! Win liao!

  • So, there you have it

  • Are tuition sorts of...
