    A 15-YEAR-OLD jumped from the 11th-floor bedroom window of his home - in front of his mother - after a disagreement with his parents over his intention to switch his co-curricular activity (CCA) in school.

    Tan Wen Yi had wanted to switch from track-and-field to drama but his parents were against it.

    Up till then, no one would have thought Wen Yi as a troubled or even self-destructive sort. The Secondary 3 student of Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) was described as cheerful and was well-liked by his classmates and respectful towards his teachers, the Coroner’s Court heard yesterday.

    Someone sent this to me with a strange comment : 

    “If put into a normal context of bad press for gaming, now track and field officially is bad for kids just like gaming.”

    It might be a strange comment, but isn’t that what it all comes down to? Whether it’s gaming or anything else, a lot it has to do with the parenting.

    But parents don’t know what to do in this strange new digital world today. Hopefully SCOGA can help them understand their kids better in terms of gaming and bridge the digital divide there. But SCOGA can’t help them in track and field and drama. That’s just plain poor parenting. Poor kid.
