Some parents expect one-on-one tutoring for their children after school. Others want a guarantee that teachers will not raise their voices or scold them in front of their classmates.

Principals and teachers say they were cheered by the Education Minister's call last week to handle parents' unreasonable demands with a firm hand.

Many say they have already begun to do it, as they encounter more such demands in the course of their work. Such demands do not faze principal Jenny Yeo of South View Primary - not any more.

"More parents are trying to assert their 'rights'... Some parents treat the teachers as though they only have one child to teach, which is a little self-centred."
