The different types of mums you'll meet

The different types of mums you'll meet

"Is that poop or chocolate?"

We all know what kind of mums exist in Singapore - the tiger mums, panda mums, the overly competitive mums and sometimes even the laid back mums.

However, Buzzfeed came up with a few different types of mums that you might just fall into:

The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) - always making sure to bring snacks, even though it's not her turn, and always active in their child's school's parent volunteers club.

The Crunchy - only feeds her child organic, free-range and fair-trade food.

The Expert - the know-it-all who does her research and ensures her children have nothing but the safest and cleanest foods.

The Hipster - ensures her child doesn't fall into the 'norm'.

The Hot Mess - never quite sure what day of the week it is, and usually do not have everything under control.

As funny as these stereotypes are, I'm sure we can all agree that the Singaporean mum is missing from this list - one who brags about their kids' accomplishments and sends them for all kinds of extracurricular classes to improve themselves.
