Last night I’ve learnt a very important lesson in life. Never had I expect I’d see this senario happened so early. Too early in fact. School homeworks are not for the kids. They are for parents! It doesnt horrifies the kids if they have 50 mathletics questions to do or 100. It horrifies the parents! It’s a test for parents to see how much patience they have and how much effort they are willing to put in to make homework enjoyable for the kids.
My baby broke down in silent last night in the kitchen. He was sobbing. He said to me that he doesnt want to do homework ever again. I was heartbroken. What have we done to our poor child? He must be getting all the stress from us.
Look, he’s just a kid. A 5 years old kid. My baby. I promise myself to put in 100% patience and 100% effort to make homeworks fun for him. I will repeat 5, 10, 20 or even 50 times if he doesnt understand. I do not want to see the same thing happened again! It’s extremely heartbreaking! It’s bad parenting! I cant do this alone but I know God is with me. He is my witness today and He will show me His wisdom.
