Thu Vân One year go, to this day, I was shivering in fury, agony and disbelief as I wrote an editorial about three kindergarten caregivers slapping the faces of 3-5 years old toddlers, even throwing them up in the air in anger.

Your Say, published every Friday, lets readers express their opinions on a topic or issue raised by the editor. Next week: How do you expect your children to study at school? A recent letter sent to the Ministry of Education and Training by a father asking for his son to study badly at school has shocked many people in Việt Nam, who often have great expectations that their children will study the best they can at school, no matter their capacity.
