"When I started working, I gave half my pay to my parents. Giving shows how grateful we are to them for bringing us up. Even if the parents are rich, the children should still give. It is also a way of contributing to the household expenses."

- Madam Fatimah Yusoff, 45, housewife

"I think they have a right to expect money from their children. But it is important as to how they communicate this expectation to their children. "

- Ms Charlene Low, 23, public relations executive

"Parents will not be able to work once they reach a certain age and children must be able to provide for them. I'm not that old yet, but if we don't start collecting when they start working, it will be hard to do so later in life."

- Madam Yeo Siew Toh, 45, housewife
