About a quarter of the 314 fathers responding to a survey on spouse expectations by the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong said they found parenting so tough they would not repeat the experience. Money, pressure from wives and unruly children were the top reasons why. Of the 350 wives queried, 38 per cent said they wanted help disciplining their children.
