I overheard this conversation between two parents the other day," I don't know what the teachers are doing, my son's results never seem to improve, his Malay is so bad and I think the teacher who teaches him don't know how to teach one lah"
If you have school growing children,the above "conversation" is nothing new,you must have heard it umpteen times,they blame the teachers,they blame the school,they blame everything else but themselves.
I've got a good friend who used to complain this to me," Despite the fact that I spend about RM700 a month sending my boy for tuition classes,no improvement,I keep changing tuition centers also no use." Then I remember one day I sarcastically told him,"could the problem be because of you,not your son,not the school,not teachers" He then asked me why, I said,"could it be because of too much tuition?" Ditto.
Someone who keeps blaming the gomen of this and that but when you ask did he or she register as a voter already, he said,"not yet"
I have learned so much from the comments you guys left for me,I learn from them, I digest them and when I have problem dealing with my children,I reflect on those comments and seek out the faults of mine first.
My Jovial told me that he was scared that he might have problem if Math and Science are taught once again in Malay and I told him,if you could master in English, so can you in Malay and stop blaming anyone else,he might not like hearing it but seriously what choice does he have?
And if you think you are always broke,don't blame anyone else,check yourself first.Let me share this with you,I have got a friend who used to earn 10 X more than I did many years ago,he splurged his wealth away and just the other day he asked me for RM100 and this is the same one who used to call me,"kiam siap" "kedekut" or a miser........I feel sad for him but then again he should not blame anyone else but himself.
P/S : If you think your boss likes the other guy more than you.Could you be the problem ? Do think about it
