Of Tiger Girl and Mums

Posting the links for record.


Recently there were a few pieces of news that must have caught the eyes of many-a-parent.

There was this WSJ article by Professor Amy Chua of Yale Law School. Her 2 girls were not allowed to:

  • be in a school play
  • watch TV or play computer games
  • choose their own ECA
  • get any grades other than an A

Well, there might be a method to this madness. Worth taking a look when little girl is older : )

And then there’s this ST article that informed us there are F&B establishments in Singapore that have a no children policy. Apart from PS Cafe at Ann Siang Hill, there are also:

  • Gunther’s Modern French Cuisine – 36 Purvis Street, #01-03. This restaurant states in its website that it observes a “no children under the age of 7 policy at the restaurant.”
  • Kuriya Penthouse, 181 Orchard Rd, Orchard Central 12-02.This Japanese restaurant do not accept child diners under 6 years old, except on Sundays and public holidays.
  • SANTI Restaurant, 10 Bayfront Avenue #L2-03, Casino Level 2, Marina Bay Sands. The Spanish restaurant requests that guests do not bring children below 10 years old to the restaurant on its website.
  • Eight Cafe & Bar, 8 Bukit Pasoh Road. The restaurant will be introducing the no-child policy at the end of this month. Its owner Bill Ho, 34, tells customers that the restaurant is not suitable for young children as it does not have chairs to seat babies.
  • University Club, at the National University of Singapore

I don’t know what the fuss is all about. If they have their no children policy, we can also vote with our feet – don’t patronise them!
