NETIZEN ASKS WHY DO COMMUTERS GIVE UP MRT SEATS TO KIDS WHEN THEY CAN STAND EASILY

Why do people give seats to young children?

I am genuinely curious why do I see people giving up their seats to children (roughly 4-8yo) on mrt when they clearly are able to stand unassisted and easily. I totally get it if i have to give up my seat to a parent carrying a toddler on them. But these children can stand on their own, a 30+ yo person like me is the one who has problems standing up for prolonged periods 😭

Edit If I stand for long I get tired, still can stand but just tired, thanks for the concern everyone haha.

Netizens’ comments

  • Is to confine the kid to a small 1×1 box so they dont teleport all over the place
  • I give the seat up more for the parents sake than the kids honestly. I think they’d rather have the kid sit still in one spot than have them trying to run around.
  • Some give to prevent the kids from being a nuisance by running around.
  • i’ve seen kids getting offered a seat and after a minute they get up and start running around instead 😭 i feel u OP
  • Kids tend to get tired easier and also having them seated just stops them being a nuisance or falling over/down when the train moves unexpectedly such as when it’s switching tracks (this for example happens when travelling between Bukit Batok and Jurong East). What concerns is me is someone in their 30s saying they can’t stand for prolonged periods. Are you ok dude? (This is a genuine question) 20s to 40s should be prime health
