Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

I made the mistake of just letting my elder boy practised the piano without sitting next to him & telling him how much/how highly I thought of his playing. With no one to compliment him, his interest soon died. You'll never know how right you are. One day out-of-the-blue ds shot me this comment, "D...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

Mark, you are being so humble. Admit it lah, you've got a gifted child. :rahrah: :rahrah: Next year, get ready to go on stage to receive prize with your DS and then the following year, get ready to leave the school for greener pastures. :evil: Considering that the recent character trait ds displaye...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

He is gifted. :wink: Start thinking about it. Don't be like us. After one gruelling week, the application form is still sitting at home. :sweat: Gifted? Hahaha. Luckily I'm not wearing dentures, otherwise I may just choked on it while laughing. DS is definitely not gifted lah, but still, I'm very p...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

I am impressed! He is very smart and mature for a P1 kid. So 稳重 and logical. He absolutely knows his stuff. :salute: My dd#2 also very mature for her age. :evil: Yah, ds can be very logical in his thinking sometimes. And I've no doubt that your dd2 is also very mature ..... being groomed by a well-...

Re: Pei Hwa Presbyterian Primary

One thing I really admire about ds is that despite his many flaws - whiny, bossy, mischievious etc etc - is the way he handles adversity. :rahrah: this is one of the best life skills we can teach them. The thing is, I didn't really teach him that. So far, I noticed that he's able to react positivel...

Re: Help please??

The URL below lists down the addresses of some of the piano shops in S'pore. But give them a call before you go down as the info maybe dated. I think there's a 2nd hand piano shop (Music Companion) in IMM and they have quite a wide range of pianos. Maybe you can call them to ask whether they have on...

Re: P1 kid who's very easily swayed by friends' comments

Markfch, I am a mama bear whereas you are a teddy bear. Haha. I'm definitely fiercer. That sissy label cured him huh? Too bad it cannot be applied to DD. Well she hardly rolls her eyes at me anymore. So I guess our deal worked out. More in my favour then hers cos I still nag at her. :laugh: Haha, j...

Re: K2 boy always want to win, cannot accept defeat

I guess that "must-win" mentality eases as they mature. DS was like that too and I usually let him win at boardgames to avoid trouble. I told him frankly I wanted to lose so that he wouldn't cry. Then I would explain that losing is not painful at all. DS was liddat too. I used to let him win at boa...
