Marilyn Tan, how long was it between the 2nd son's birth and the first application for PR for him?

If I read the intention of your question correctly, would the delay be really such a strong factor? A bit hard to believe talking about 2y span.
Besides, they got the status together with the 1st son 3y ago and the older one is 3yo. The difference between the boys is 1y only so it narrows down the period to less than one year where they already applied twice so probably they applied within few months after the 2nd son was born.

The difference between the boys is two years, not one. So the first one was around 2 years old when they applied for PR as a family as she as stated the applied for PR 3 years ago. The second one would have been born thereabouts the same time as they got PR or shortly thereafter. Given that, we don't know when she applied for PR for the 2nd boy. Did they apply immediately after getting the boys citizenship from their native country? or Did they wait a year or so before applying? If they waited, I'd say that ICA might have wondered WHY they waited and as was mentioned, maybe they have marked the REPs for non-renewal? I'm just trying to look at it from weird angles as it doesn't really make sense to me either.

Other than that, I'd say appeal it and try to get an appointment with an officer at ICA to see if it can be sorted out.

Now we do not want to have two sons who are in different situations, one would have to serve the NS, and one wouldn't. As parents, we are trying our best to give a fair life to both of them, but it is hard when they are holding different status here. Most of the time, the biggest privilege for the PR children is local school admission. In our family, first one would have a chance to go to public school in 2 years time, while it is slimmer for second one to go to the same public school as he is a foreigner, so to be fair, we are thinking to give up that privilege and send both of them to International School if we still can't have PR approval for the second son in two years.

OP , here are some questions that you could verify for me
When did you attain your PRship?
Alone or together with hubby with first child or not.
Child born in Singapore from PR parent will get LTVP unless you did not register the child within 45 days of birth or you did the opposite
Your PR attain if alone under PTS or otherwise
Financially ? Occupation ?

Please remember do pose the comments constructively or else it will go viral as others will understood it differently
