Are kids born naughty?

Are kids born naughty or are they just spoiled?

Why do kids misbehave?

Is it nature or nurture?

Dr. Dawn Harper and Dr. Ravi Jayaram will explore these questions in a new documentary series calledBorn Naughty?‘ on Channel 4 (UK only). The series will start tomorrow, 14 May 2015 at 8pm.

I really hope that this programme will give describe the complexity of the development of behaviours. I guess we shall see…

Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Rememberance Day)



It was Yom HaShoah yesterday, also known as Holocaust Rememberance day. The whole world were reminded of the horror that happened relatively recently in our history. Six million people were killed just because they were Jewish; just because they were different.

I cannot begin to imagine what those people went through- young, old, men, women, almost all practically walked and worked to their deaths. I also can’t imagine how the Nazi soldiers were thinking while they did what they did. It’s horrible, it’s depressing, but we need to remind ourselves of it to make sure that it does not happen again.

What can we learn from it? Well, we should treat people fairly. We should not discriminate against anyone who are different from us. Difference in s colour, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, psychological and physiological states, gender and sexual orientation should not matter. We deserve respect from each other.
