He also said that it was a, “timely reminder to parents not to be so ‘kancheong’ and to let our kids have their childhood”.

‘Kancheong’ is a Cantonese for “anxious” or “panicky”. PM Lee had previously mentioned that children should enjoy their childhood in his National Day Rally speech in August. He had also urged parents not to be overzealous about preparing their children for Primary 1.

Here’s what some of our parents have to say about the video:

Pauline Zhou: Hahaha! This is so funny! Happy Children’s Day.

Loh Ricky: Who says SG got no creative people?

Emily Chung: Singapore has a FAB future with great children like that!

Hani Campbell: My lil lauren watched this last night & keep calling her sisters when they appeared on the screen plus watching over & over again….
