PostSubject: shocking discovery...when mothers sent kids to school   Mon Sep 20, 2010 8:51 am

for the past 4 weeks, I been sending my kid to school and then later walk to the nearby for coffee. One thing that I realized, there are groups of mothers who at the kopi place will gather and start to 'scheme' or share what sort of homeworks one should further give to their sons.

Wah piang...SCARY!!!!.....as if the school homework not enough, the tution not enough....now 'the united we stand' by the mothers......

Shiver!!!!!

I pity the kids... as much as schooling is important, they learn from playing as well...

That's the KSKS (Kaisi Kaisu) attitude... at the end, children will forget wat's like to be children.

There's no necessity to get caught in such a rat-race, just THINK DIFFERENTLY (not sure whether tt can apply in paper-chasing Spore)

Cheers

Not a mum but have a nephew whom I watched grow up.

If you do nothing about it, your kid might be left behind.

I think there needs to be a balance.

But then again, each of us have different definition as to what is enough.

If only the government and employers starts to put advert like.
Experience in lieu of qualification is acceptable and make it a culture.
The paper chase will not end!!!!!!
Actually, from what I know. Most employer does not really look at the paper qualification.
They are more keen in your experience but yet they put that criteria! HR why?
No wonder Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Lee Kah Shin..... cannot get a job!

No leh, in my co. .... they look at paper qualifications. No degree, you are a non-exec.
Then of course, there is a limit as to how high your salary can go le lorrr....

well in fact, i think paper qualification is just a beginning, ultimately is the work performance, work attitude that brings you move you to a higher level....till when you start to feel that being an employee do not bring you to anywhere, then it's time to do some brainwork and maybe start out own business...keke

These are the HR stuffs that causes the paper chase.
That is why people like LKS, Dell and Gates can't work in your company!

Not discriminate lah....just sharing my observations only.

Actually I am thinking of launching a 'Save our kids' campaign...where we fathers ferry the kids and discourage the mothers fm talking to each other......hahahahah

we fathers can then gather at the kopi place to discuss and plan for next games....hahahah

PS: pardon my wishful thinking

Muar_Chee,
Same...I read this forum and my wife in that forum.

She is charge of Education and Finance.
I am in charge of Sports and Entertainment.

I have the harder job ...ha ha

However, I do notice that in the top classes the number (percentage) of mothers (or at least one parent) not working is high compare to the 'middle' classes.

It's good to check on the forum at times. But just avoid giving unnecessary pressure to the kids.
