"Kiasuism" has been tainted!

Postby gisele924 » Fri Sep 13, 2013 7:10 am

Kiasuism? Sounds like a word I never want myself to be labelled with :xedfingers:

But it is really as "bad" as it sounds? Actually it isn't at all. We sent our children for enrichment classes at a young age, prepare them as much as possible, we feel bad for them if they have too much to do.....

But, again, is it really that bad? Of course, we have to strike a balance however if you and I as parents do not prepare them young, will we be responsible for their future and bring trouble to ourselves.?

It isn't so much of Kiasuism, it is preparing beforehand, planning ahead of time, no plan = auto pilot so auto pilot just takes whatever that comes on their way. What makes us think if we don't teach them to handle pressure :torchme: now, they will feel less pressurize in the future and they WILL willing or enlightened enough to admit the challenges and mistakes they make and learn from them? :imdrowning:

I guess we have come to a time, when we hope we know somethings earlier? Do the same for your child then, not solely of academic but.... holistically :grphug:

I think its more like preparing in anticipation of the future. In a weird way, Singapore as a whole is very kiasu. We plan and plan for the future and never let up
