So it was a SPM "D " day last Wednesday, I was with a group of parents (at Jovial school), it was interesting enough hearing those conversation exchanged amongst the parents.
I am not interested to share on those parents trumpeting on how many "A"s their sons or daughters got but one thing got my attention from one particular parent,after all the fanfare of who got how may As and what not, she was kind of feeling "ashamed" with the scene,then she told me that " die lah, I thought my son could at least do so so but the result really shows the otherwise" I didn't ask her about the result,instead I asked her why she said "die lah"
She said,probably her son could not ascend to lower sixth and if he wanted to go to college,she said she just could not afford it so she was worried about her son's future. I then told her, it was not the end of the world lah, there sure to be something that her son is capable of excelling in... she said hoped so.. Ditto.
Note 1) Parent will never stop worrying
Note 2) As parents, are we just interested in our children academically,lest we care so much of their others passion and dreams?
Note 3) Are our children really getting smarter (just look at those who so scored so many As) or is it that our education level is getting lower?
