Last week,Jovial was telling me that one of his friends initiated a "Holiday Trip" that would only include solely his classmates to Genting Highland,, the trip was in a way planned to celebrate the end of PMR exam.
Then I asked him,if he wanted to go and gayly he said yes,then I told him it would not be much of problem for me to let him go for 3 days and 2 nights trip.
I was talking to a friend of mine,coincidentally his 15 years old boy also has such proposal by his classmate,(different school from Jovial) a holiday for them after the PMR exam as well. So I was asking him,would he allow his 15 years old to go holiday with his classmate without the presence of teacher or adults,his answer was a straight "No NO"
So when I asked him the reason for his refusal,he said that these boys were "very good in doing something behind our backs","they are more daring now" and " these boys would be going all out as if they were an adults"
After hearing my reasons for his refusal, I asked myself that I could trust Jovial of "knowing what to do " and I do know many of his classmates,(they are good),are there anything else that I was afraid of letting Jovial going for a short holiday with his classmates of whom are only 15 years...
If you were in my shoes,would you allow Jovial to go?
