it was on the news last night. The maid has been charged but out on bail I think.Splatted wrote:the maid should be shot, literally.
Some of the rough handling bordered on 'shaking' the baby. In Australia, babies have died due to this sort of abuse.
Do we know whether this took place in Singapore? What actually became of the maid?
Why not just substitute the word 'maids' for 'parents'? Any idiot can have a child...ksl wrote:Well what does one expect, if there are no controls in place and education, to educate these maids.

You may not like the video, but if by posting it parents become aware of a potentially dangerous situation and it saves one child from being abused, then I say bravo!
Sure they have choices. It's just that they have different value system so the choices they ultimately make are not the same. Usually, the differentiating factor is the comfort level of ones living conditions and material wants. But at the end of the day it's still choices isn't it? Also, sounds a bit genderist to me. Not siding with either camp on this one but everybody and every family has choices: from getting married to getting pregnant to a DINK household to a housefull of kids or birth control. It's all about choices.familyof5 wrote:
only a bloke would have that opinion. i'm sure many people would prefer not to work, and look after their children. unfortunately they don't have the choices you do.
Judgemental is not part of it, it's to do with prefering to share moments, with my child today, of which I missed with my other two children, due to divorce....not about how much I need, to pay the bills, or to accumilate wealth.sprite wrote:Honestly ksl, I don't see the point you are trying to make either. Condemning the parents for leaving the child with a maid, just because you chose not to? Very judgmental if you ask me.
