“Instruction would be substantially more successful assuming its motivation was to guarantee that when they leave school each kid and young lady ought to know the amount they don’t have the foggiest idea, and be saturated with a deep rooted want to know it” – Sir William Haley

What is viewed as an instruction for my youngster?

I believe that education is the entire learning process, not just the acquisition of knowledge but also the deeper exploration of one’s own identity and the world in which they live. So, it’s not so much about learning specific subjects like math, science, English, or moral education as much as it is about how to use this knowledge effectively in our everyday lives. More importantly, a good education also investigates and analyzes the individual learning process for each student.

Think about this quote:

“What a person knows is not worth anything in the world. “But it pays for what a person does with what he knows,” remarked Laurence Lee. As a father, the question “what kind of education do I want for my child?” is a constant one.

Sincerely, I want my daughter to have access to an education that gives her the freedom to see the world through her own eyes and develop her own perspective on it. It must be a learning adventure that is challenging and enlightening. In addition, I hope that she appreciates the wonders of nature and learns the value of discipline. Most importantly, it needs to be able to cultivate the positive attitudes she needs to be strong, resolute, and willing to take on challenges while maintaining peace and grace in her interactions with others.

However, I believed that the majority of current educational systems fail to fulfill their intended function, which is to cultivate a balanced child. Nothing bad can really be said about having exercise manuals, evaluation papers, enhancement classes and so forth. But are we causing our child’s present and future destruction by doing too much good? That is the core of the dilemma that most youngsters in Singapore, Hong Kong (and Asia overall) are confronting. As parents, we have taken away their childhood!

What has become of old-fashioned common sense? Where does the BALANCE fit into the larger picture? I don’t have anything against my daughter enrolling in enrichment classes when she gets older, but I will make sure she enjoys the entire learning process. Naturally, I want my child to have plenty of time for family, play, and fun!

Think about this:

“Everyone appears to be in such a terrible rush right now; eager for greater advancements, aspirations, and so on; so that kids don’t get much time to spend with their parents; There is very little time for parents to spend together; and the disruption of global peace begins in the home.” -Mother Teresa Parents, please refrain from being extreme in your care for your children. I figure out your concerns and concerns however we really want to look for Equilibrium in everything we do. Consider Michael Jackson’s criminal trials and his complaints about being robbed as a child. When my daughter is older, I do not want her to learn that I knowingly took away her childhood. Unfortunately, I am unable to return her childhood to her.
Think about this.

Don’t be too hard on yourself, parents. Let’s look at what we’re doing for our child and get rid of the bad habits. In the end, your child will get the best education if they have great parents like you around them.
