Lost in Singapore - feauturing Matthew Cooper

There have been many children's books written about Singapore and this would not be the last for sure.

However what caught our eye about this very interesting book, when we were flying on Singapore Airlines recently, was that it was actually featured in Silver Kris (the airline's in-flight magazine).

Spare the Rod & Spoil the Child?

Parenting style differs greatly between generations. I was brought up in the era of hands-on parenting style, and by hands-on I meant getting wacked by a cane and slapped around.

How do these two parenting styles stand up to each other?
