Most of us are in the average. 80/20 rule still apply. Anyway, all of us know where our kids stand There are not many scholars around. We are not scholars too. We have to manage our our expectation, just be more realistic.
We as parents just have to realistic...then we will not be stressed. Only we as parents will know where our kids stand...btw, PSLE today is unlike our time. So we have to understand what our kids have gone through.
Parents are stressed if they have an expectation of 260 and above.
Not sure about that. My sister's 2 children scored 271 and 273 respectively. They were not stressed at all, no external extra lessons, went fishing during PSLE papers, played computer games, piano and dancing classes as usual...
On the other hand, my cousin and his only child was highly stressed, it was not that my cousin expected his child to score 260 and above, he "only wanted his boy to DO HIS BEST".
