3 things I learned from the Adelyn Hosehbo saga


‘Adelyn Hosehbo’ is the infamous Singaporean teenage girl who became an instant Internet hit because she boasted slapping her mother on her Facebook. The whole incident went viral when local citizen journalist portal Stomp published it. The rest is history.

3 things I learned from this saga:

  1. Cyber wellness, character and family education are very important for kids today.
  2. Digital footprints travel at exponential speed in social media.
  3. It’s a great teachable moment or resource. In fact I already noticed some of my students doing similar things. This incident amplified the reality.
