• For Love's Sake

Q5) How does one decide the best form of discipline for a child?

The best form of discipline is one in which your child’s behaviour is changed voluntarily. Discipline is not punishment. Discipline is helping a child find solution for a problematic behaviour. Punishment is making a child suffer for having a problem behaviour.


Try out different ideas and see what works with your child. In general, once a child can be reasoned with, physical punishment is less helpful. Uncontrolled use of physical punishment can be emotionally damaging. Being calm and talking it out with your child and even letting your child generate his own solutions is certainly more helpful as it encourages collaboration instead of building resistance.

For Love's Sake

Inspired by the best-selling Humans of New York (HONY), we aspire to build a community around families in Singapore, by bringing stories of kids, mums, dads, grandparents, from all walks of life, in any life situation, to our followers.

We collate and publish stories about families in Singapore to produce reflective pieces from serious, to lighthearted, just for laughs post.

Our Goal

With the kampong idea in mind, we hope to foster the same openheartedness and generosity in terms of providing emotional support and space to others in our online kampong.

Summary of Our Guidelines

We seek to build a supportive, welcoming community. All stories are published with permission from the person(s) involved. That also means they entrust their stories to us and our community - to you.

Be kind, be supportive. Live, Laugh, Love. Let's shape a kampong for families in Singapore.
