That's it. I'm

Today, a lady came to me with her son who was slightly below average in height and she wanted to give him
HORMONE injections so he could grow taller, to "fit in". Her son is 5.
I assessed him nutritionally and figured he wasn't eating all that healthily (rice and fish floss for breakfast?)...
This is just one of many incidents that show how
ignorant and how
crazy Hong Kong parents are. 1-year-olds are forced into interviews (I kid you not
) to get into "prestigious" preschools. 3-year-olds already have a "portfolio" or "resume" to enrol into kindergarten.
I'm not against prestigious schools nor am I against smart kids starting early in this world. What I'm concerned about is that locals here seem to have it upside down or backwards.
Case in point: 7-year-olds don't know how to tie their shoelaces because their maid does it for them every morning. I've seen local kids
hit their mother on the subway without their mother scolding them back! Few kids here like reading books (I was scolded when I thought about getting some easy-read novels for MrAC's younger cousins. WTF?
). I have kids coming into the clinic-
KIDS- who are anxious and suffer physical ailments (teeth-grinding, tummy aches, vomiting regularly) because they're overly stressed.
