Raymond Wong: “I Don’t Spank My Son!”
While Raymond Wong (黃浩然) is no stranger to playing the character of a caring and responsible father many times onscreen, he is just the same loving and doting father to his one-and-a-half year old son Kayden offscreen. He hopes that by setting a good example for his son, Kayden will learn to be a good person doing good deeds.
Raymond participated in the “One One One” charity which collects unused toys for the underprivileged kids recently. “Many children’s toys are left abandoned after the children grow up which is a waste. Items such as strollers can be donated to families in need. Not just strollers, but school uniforms and books can also be recycled. If we instill these ideas in children from an early age and teach them to take care of the environment, it’ll benefit both the kids and our society in the long run.”
A firm believer that actions speak greater than words, Raymond pays special attention to his own actions around his children. “When my wife is at work and I take Kayden to a playgroup, I’ll make an effort to talk and communicate with him because he’s an extremely quick learner at this age. For example, he saw that we used a Q-tip to clean our ears and he learned to do the same thing! If we sleep late, then he will adapt his sleeping schedule to be later in the night as well.” Raymond wants to ensure that he sets a good example for his son, and at the same time, re-evaluate his own habits.
Raymond admits that his son can be very active sometimes and require extra attention, but no matter how much his son misbehaves, Raymond does not think that spanking or hitting is a solution. “If we hit him, he will think that violence can solve problems and we definitely don’t want to teach him that. When he does misbehave, I discipline him by making him stand still.”
Whether it is onscreen of offscreen, fans of Raymond know that he will always put his best efforts in his work with good intentions at heart.
