I remember some years back, a friend of mine said her daughter used markers and scribbled on the walls of their flat. Her conclusion was, “thank goodness for water soluble markers”.
I don’t think the child was punished and I was quite disturbed by what she said. How would the child learn that every action has its consequences?
Back to the infamous Amos Yee. I haven’t seen the allegedly offensive YouTube video but if it was offensive enough for 20 police reports to be lodged, then he needs to face the music. Let the due process of law take place and if he’s guilty, and let him suffer the necessary punishment.
Anyway, he’s a minor so hopefully he learns from this episode and this doesn’t escalate to something more serious in future.
