Elaine King

Fond memories of father

Elaine King, in her 'Family Affairs' column (South China Morning Post, September 7), speaks for herself and not for a whole generation.

More to education than exams

I refer to the article by Elaine King headlined, 'Leaving through a child's eyes' (South China Morning Post, June 22).

The article focused on the issues concerning child psychology, which is not being given the serious attention it deserves in today's society.

Not legalised

I appreciate the efforts of Elaine King in bringing awareness regarding the issues of homosexuality ('Ripples on Dragon Boat day', South China Morning Post, June 12), but the article does require clarification.

Homosexuality has never been legalised. Rather, it was decriminalised in 1992, which puts an end to the legal brand-naming of gay men as criminals.

Missing point of museum

I refer to the article by Elaine King (South China Morning Post, June 1), on her visit to the Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum in Hong Kong. With all due respect to Ms King and her family, I believe she may have missed the point of the attraction.

Shocked views not challenged

I can only hope that Elaine King's intent in writing the article headlined 'Caught in the crossfire', and yours in publishing it (Saturday Review, April 24), was that the evil in Milan Teodorovich's comments would be so apparent that critical commentary was unnecessary.

Otherwise, it is shocking that Ms King would allow Mr Teodorovich's views to go unchallenged.

'East vs West' a stereotype

I'd like to comment on the article by Elaine King, South China Morning Post, February 2), 'East vs West, whose kids behave best?'.

Let children learn to think

I could not agree more with Anthony Kung's letter 'Cultural mix' (South China Morning Post, February 1) in reply to Elaine King's column 'At the mercy of the little devils' (Post, January 26).

Cultural mix

I read with great interest Elaine King's column headlined, 'At the mercy of the little devils' (South China Morning Post, January 26) and could truly relate to what she was saying.

I was born to Asian parents, but was brought up in a European environment right here in Hong Kong.
