hi all,

had alot of resistance b4 finally joining this formum as I didn't want to admit I'm 'kiasu'. but after browsing through, I found this forum informative & resourceful when I was searching for ideas for my kids.

btw, I'm a FTWM of 2, with a 4yo son in nursery & a 21mo gal bumping around at home.

3 cheers to kiasuparents.com! :celebrate:

Hi Wan,

There is totally nothing wrong with being kiasu so long one is not selfish in the process of being kiasu :wink:

For your 4yo, sourcing for primary schools already? or you are fortunate enough to get priority thanks to their grandparent's foresight?

My 30mth old is bumping around at home for the past 30mths. This will be his last month of freedom before he starts school next term. By then, it'll be the start of my 1hr (perday) of freedom :celebrate:

welcome to KSP. 8)

yes, I think I'm fitting into the kiasu parent profile as I have already shortlisted a few pri schools for my 4yo. :D then my girl can just enter pri school via sibling priority scheme (or what is the proper term?)

beside the academic part, I really think children nowadays lack manners and social skills. I'm trying to brush up my children in these areas as I think they will benefit in life rather than doing assessment books and 10-yr-series.

hoping to find more parents with similar thinking here...

Welcome to KiasuParents.com, Wan! I think you are already quite well versed and prepared in our "kiasu ways". We may be kiasu, but might as well be gracious too :).

thanks. I'm currently hooked on buying books for my kids and reading with them. it's interesting to see how my 4yo & 21mth old respond to the same book & story

I've also started to expose my kids on arts & craft eg. finger painting, fruit stamping. but can't stand the mess they make after the session. any good 'cleaner' suggestions?
