Kevin Cheng recently posted a video on Instagram of one of his sons behaving badly.

In the video, his three-year-old son Rafael was seen snatching a poster from Cheng and then ripping and stomping on it.

Cheng wrote: "I think my son needs a lesson on respect."

Netizens couldn't agree more, with many of them telling Cheng he should be more strict with his sons.

Cheng has said in previous interviews with Hong Kong media that he found it difficult to control his children.

"You can’t be stern alone and it’s useless to be a strict parent. You have to be their friend and try to communicate with them.

"I realised the best way to teach my son is that when he’s throwing a tantrum, you have to throw a tantrum as well. When he cries, you have to start crying. When that happens, he’ll stop to look at me and forget why he’s angry,” the 53-year-old said of his parenting style.

Cheng shares two sons – Rafael and Yannick – with his wife, Grace Chan, 31. They are currently expecting their third child.
