PARENT and government officials in Singapore are voicing concern over what they say is increasing in  the country's pampered teenager Nowadays, one in every seven families has a foreign maid, Singapore - a nation going from Third World to First World in a single generation - spoilt youths have popped up on the radar screen of the country's control-obsessed leaders Also  Orchard Road are plazas devoted entirely to teenagers, crammed with food courts, video arcades and even spas.

I think parents should be strict towards their children. The government should increase the price of maids so lesser families would hire a maid and children would learn to be more independent. Schools should also provide trips to poorer countries so students will know how lucky they are and change to become not so dependant to their maids. Parents should talk to their child on money and how to use it wisely.
