Daddy astronomer here, new member.

Hi everyone,
A new member here. Chance upon this site while doing a google search for “Top Primary Schools in Singapore + Top Secondary Schools in Singapore”. How kiasu is that?…hehehe. I am actually quite the opposite. Well atleast in the beginning when my dd started schooling. I use to be very relax about my kids studies. Things began to change when dd started going into P4 this year and PSLE looms near (I bought her a PSLE Maths revision book two weeks ago and planning to get the Science one this weekend…,tell me if I am doing this kiasu thing a bit too far…lol). So here I am, a green horn, learning how to be a kiasu parent for the sake of dd future success.
Cheers :D

I think this site works both ways....it makes gancheong(clueless) parents less gancheong(by giving more info) and complacent parents(bochap) more gancheong(kiasu). :wink:
I started very gancheong over ds1's P1 preparation cos we were venturing into the unknown. But with veteran parents' sharing around here, giving a glimpse of what to expect, the gancheong spider is now less gancheong.

But for me is the other way round. I used to be very relax but after joining KS, I am getting more gancheong. I told my girl to forgive me when I react a bit impatience and she said "I think you go to KS forum too much". :D

agree with you :lol:
It is good to have ppl in the same boat with you sharing the same sorts of worries and problem and facing it together. Make you less gancheong and more confident that we are doing the correct thing. Glad to meet you jedamum. Cheers :celebrate:
