My son PMR exam

Since Monday 3/10/2005 my son has been starting to take the PMR examination. It will be until next week 11/10/2005 the whole exam will be over. Next year will be my daughter turn for the PMR.


This reminds me of the days I took my SPR (Sijil Peniliaan Rendah) the same as PMR.Looking and comparing with my kids on their studies I think I am way behind them.

They are more gifted than me and have produced better results compared to the results I have obtained. I think they are smarter perhaps their generation is suppose to be this way.

Sometimes I wonder, can we as parents be easy going on the kids, let them do their own thing. But again kids have to be monitor and guide so that they will be able to instill good values in life.

I try as far as possible to be as flexible as possible with my kids. Things that cannot be allow to do are usually given answers with reasoning. Sometimes they don’t like it but that’s the rule.

I think he will be going to enjoy his long rest and the internet after the long awaited exam is over. I have promised him that he can have full access anytime to the internet after the exam.
Then as a father I will still have to monitor his activities.That what parents has to do.

loveris: Me slave to my kids, I don't think so exam is part and parcel of life.Even if they don't do well in exam it's not the end of the world.Things can work out if we are hard working.

mg: Stress sometimes but most of the time I am Ok,I think the best is to treat them to their abilities and don't pressure them too much.
