As you probably already know, this blog is all about celebrating parenthood in a very realistic and rough-talking way. We use a lot of profanity here, but make no mistake about it great housing is no joke when it comes to raising a family. You already know this.
Unfortunately, when it comes to expat housing in places like Singapore, you really cannot assume that the condominium complex you’re moving into will have a parent focus. You have to understand that housing is not something you can take lightly. You’re raising a kid.
The environment of your child is crucial to your child’s mental, social, psychological, spiritual, physical and, yes, even financial development. You want your kid to be surrounded by people who have the same values as you. You want to be in an environment where your family is challenged, pushed, encouraged, cultivated and, otherwise, inspired to be its very best.
A lot of people turn a blind eye to this. They think that a home is just a home and it’s just a place to physically partner bodies after eight hours of work or eight plus two hours of commute. Well, you’re more than welcome to think along those lines, but let me tell you a lot of your environment their influences will eventually reach your home.
Don’t be surprised if your kids develop a wide range of values that may not line up with the values you’d like for them, and it’s not because you are a negligent parent. It’s because live in the wrong environment.
This is not a slam against poor people. This is not some sort of discriminatory statement against working-class people, but this is just the plain truth. Everybody has values, and these values are tied to their class level.
As the old saying goes, “If you want to make a million bucks, you better dress like a million bucks.” The same applies to people. If you want to go somewhere in life, hang out with people who are going somewhere in life. Indeed, it’s hard to soar like an eagle if you’re hanging around chickens. Do you see where I’m coming from?
