Recently, i get know of 2 Singaporean kids, Mr E and Miss J. Mr E. is ~22 years old while Miss J. is ~16 years old. Mr E and Miss J are a couple, that moving out from their own family and both rented a room and stayed together. These two kids story really make me "sweat" with the education at SIngapore, especially home education.
The time when Mr E and Miss J rented the room, they are on very tight budget, therefore they request the landlord to accept the half month deposit first while another half will be then paid after 2 wks. The landlord feel pity with them and then agreed to let them delayed the deposit payment. During chit chat, Mr E declared that he is a sales agent and Miss J declared that she is a office girl. But in few days time, the landlord started to realize that they actually are jobless. Even when the landlord ask them to tell the truth but they still insists that they are working. After 1 month, they still every day stay at home- jobless. Besides lying about jobless, they even burn the water kettle, but they did not admit their mistake until they landlord question them. When the landlord catch them second time cooking in the room, they gives a lot of liar that they actually did not cook, only when the landlord found the cooking utensils out, they only admit that they are cooking. But with no guilty or feel shameful.
These two kids attitude is really make me quite shock. The most serious problem that I saw from them is they keep on telling lies. This attitude only make people not trusted to them. Is this their problem or is the way their parents edu them!? The second problem that I saw from this story is hat how come their parents can allowed them to move out from the house when they both are jobless and one of them is actually under age. I really feel scary with this kind of edu result, no matter what parents really play a very important role when come to children education. Don't push this responsibilty to the teachers or children. Children also need to think more mature and also don't ever forget how hard the parents raising them up. Effort that parents spend towards the children normally are unneglectable. Children, do listen to what yor parents teach you, although sometime you might have conflict in term of mindset, but do stay calm and think from parents perspetive. Parents, do patient and listen to the reason why your children think so. Explain to them slowly and with patient, as they are still young and they need guidance. Else when the kids turn to be like above two mentioned kids, not only you will feel the pain, the kids future will be spoilt as well.
