Some children are also stressed to submit their homework on time and also not forgetting to attend the extra classes that their parents had registered for them during the school holidays. Children are being pressured to attain better results than their peers. Their school results, manners, achievement are also been compared with their siblings, relatives, friends and others. The children lives are circling to achieve better result and must be better than others. Some of these children are no longer that lively, active as we are in the past.
However, many office workers are stressed up in order to attain these glorious achievements.

While some will stay back in office after office hours so that they can finish off those backlogs.

Some of them are afraid of their work being outsourced to 3rd party, thus they start to work day and night so as to secure their job. Some adults even bring work home to finish up.
