Monkeys have very acute sense of smell. When I was holidaying at a nature reserve, saw an entire troop of monkeys climbing all over a car because the owner had left a bag of fruits inside it.

:cry:
I too couldn't stop the tears .If the tragedy happened when the unit followed SOP then it is a different story but such blatant break in procedure , yet no accountability. The Judge is happens to an acquaintance, held him in high regard ...

I cannot fathom the pain of this mother , pray that she receives some peace and solace

Yes, very sad. Pains me to read this mum's loss of son since the tragedy was reported some time back.

To me, the resultant accident is caused by an irresponsible act. Was very upset to see the defendants' lawyer using a clause in the law to get the defendants getting a "scot free" sentence.

I hope the defendants do their part to make up to this mum.

:thankyou:

Actually I did not do anything for him ever since he auto pilot from P5 onwards.


Congrats, jennifer. I think u have done a great job. By letting yr ds to be auto pilot from p5 is already not easy. U need to have courage and have a lot of faith in him. Personally i feel that one of the hardest part of parenting is to have faith in our child, letting it go and allow them space and time to grow. Not easy, sometimes to stand behind them, to watch and not do much....need self control and discipline.....

Trust me, that decision was not easy. We had a turbulence period when he was in P4, almost fought daily over school work. From being a full time coaching mother, I stopped all home coaching before he started P5. It was either float on his own or sink on his own. Fortunately he had very good school teachers and the peers in the class were motivated lot of children.

I wish I could do so with ah boy too. This little boy has time mgt and self discipline issues :roll:

:rotflmao:

I bought a few assessment books to prepare him for P5. Ended up mostly untouched becos the school gave so much homework everyday.

Auto pilot means he decided when to do school work, how much to revise, how much time for FnZ.

We spent quite a bit of money too.

Pre-sch - abacus at cc
Mid P1 - I can Read
P2 - Jan & Elly
P3 - Morris Allen
P4 - Catherine Khoo's writing centre (a school holiday programme)
P5 to sec 4 - HMT tuition

I believe elder boy found his own magic formula of how to study effectively and efficiently, except for HMT.

2 years of not reading Chinese materials, he has forgotten so many. When he is back from doing BMT, he is going (my order) to read Chinese Reader's Digest before he turns into a true kantang :mad:
