Good afternoon my name is Wong Hong Ming and this is Miss Christina from Malaysia Nice to meet you Today we'll talk about parenting so Miss Christina Do you think it's hard to raise a child? Hmm I don't think it's hard it depends on their years so if they're younger then yes, it is hard but later on it gets easier my second question is if your child cries for a toy in a mall what will you do? Hmm I wouldn't give it to him or her easily I would stop her from crying first and then talk about it and then will see whether I want to give the toy or not Okay so my third question is if your child wanted to travel abroad alone will you let him go? if he or she is more than 18 years old then yes I will completely allow and if is younger than that maybe not okay Then next is If your child gets a bad result in the exam will you take away his phone or laptop? Emm If he or she is too dependent on it then yes, I probably will but if I mean if it gives them benefits if let see if they're learning through the laptop or the phone then no I won't okay Next is will you punish your child physically if they make mistake No, I don't believe in corporal punishment Ya So my last question is What is your expectation on your child?
