Re: 10 per cent of S'poreans affected by mental illnesses

If a kid is judged to be good enough only if they perform well academically, their self-worth hinges on just that one element. The consequences can be quite dire if he falls from that pedestal in later years. If we look at some of the suicide notes written, the underlaying message is usually I'm a ...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

I would like to be a very involved parent come next year, but but but, I find it challenging even when I imagine a tired mom after work trying to coach a tired child after school at night. C'mon, if I can do it, definitely you can do it too. From my experience, if either party is tired on a particu...

Re: 10 per cent of S'poreans affected by mental illnesses

Indeed there are more (child) cases, but you know what? A lot of these cases (in IMH) are referred from schools, and when they review the case, a significant number are due to the parents being the cause of it. The parents have the mental illness and "pass it down" to the next generation by perpetu...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

I would also like to highlight that different kids 开窍 at different pace. Take DD for example. She wasn't as good when she first entered Pri 1, but now, she has made a quantum leap and progressed on to top 20 position in standard (based on our findings). So parents, don't despair and don't give up i...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

A Wrinkle in Time is the first book of the Time Quartet. A recommended buy. My set is yellowed with age but my dd enjoys reading it. It should be available in MPH or Kinokuniya. Kino's having 20% promotion. I think today's last day. At what level is this book pitched? I also read A Wrinkle in Time ...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

However, I am also worried about the impact of this ranking system on the average ability students, worst of all, the so called "last class" students. Are they perceived to be "lousy" by themselves or by their school mates? I am worried about the damage on the confidence level of some of these kids...
