I was sharing with my friend about my lil Marvell,whom will be going for a 3 days and 2 night camp away from home beginning next Monday. The reason for the camp was because Marvell was picked to represent the school for the so called ," World Mathematic " evaluation program.
I was told by his teacher,if he passed the evaluation, he could be chosen for the state and thereafter,blah blah blah................
I was surprised by my friend's remark when he said that my son could have the qualities of being a child prodigy....... I know Marvell has got "talents" he is good in his studies,he is good in languages, he is good in general knowledge, he is good in science and math too but to qualify him as a child prodigy, I tend not to concede.
So,my friend advised me to take him for some tests,(he claimed that there were tests to determine if a child has got high IQ thus qualifying him to be a child prodigy) I said no lah, then my friend asked why that i refused,then I said to him this,
I rather let him enjoy his childhood for I believe he only has one childhood to live with,if he misses the joy of being a child,then he might not get the chance to relive his childhood again, I rather want him to be happy, to be cheeky at the same time enjoying his studies. My friend then said I crazy, I said never mind lah.....................
Have a great weekend and God bless..................Test or no test...Marvell is already my child prodigy
P/S : There are things you can't relive for the second time,childhood is one of them.
