Believe some of you are staying with your parents and rely on them to look after your kids. Do you agree that your kids learnt at a very fast rate esp during their growing years? The moment you use a new adjective or (bad word) and the next thing you know, it's coming out from your kid's mouth as often till they learn the next new word. Likewise your actions also speak.
You may enrol them in the best school, nuture them with the best assessment books but the best education often take place at home when interaction is most initimate and impactful. Imagine you heck scold the grandparents in front of them or even send them to an old folks home. Do you not think that your kids will do the same to you? So what he (kid) becomes a scholar next time, earn big money? Your end will be at some old folks home anyway cos you have already set this up in your kid's mind.
To all Kiasu parents, let's take a few minutes to ponder over our papa and mama who have given their all to us so that today you have an opportunity to share in this forum and how you really want to mould your kids for future challenges.
I like to share a website http://www.holdinghands.sg/ to celebrate our parents. In time to come, we be like them too ; )
