Parents would do everything to make sure that their children success in their life. The way they carry out the mission depends on their experience, knowledge and examples around them.
We had a replacement class yesterday for the Deepavali celebration on October. That means lesson is on even it is on sleepy Saturday. Yeay!! However, for the teachers who are teaching the Year 6 students, they need to participate in the postmortem for the first examination that the students had undergone.
The parents were invited to attend the program, as they need to have a clear picture on how their children performed in the previous exam. The parents first listened to the postmortem presentation presented by the headmaster.
Next, a motivation talk is given to the teachers and parents. It touched on the parenting skills that parents need to have in order to produce human being with quality not absurdity. Basically, it was about the four aspects of what have been stressed in the National philosophy of education which are:
- Physical aspect- Give quality food for them in schedule. For instance: According to the presenter, 70%of parents do not give breakfast for their child before they go to school. This is not good for the children’s body and brain in order to cope with the lessons at school. Also, parents need to take care of the health of the students. Exercise and sport is part of it.
- Emotional aspect- Positive reinforcement is vital. i.e. Some parents tend to only criticise children when they do wrong things while parents say nothing when they behave well or even worst being sarcasm to them. Children who lack love would believe that attention will only be given if they do something wrong. So, start praising the children if they do something good and ignore the attention seeker. huhuhu
- Spiritual aspect- It starts with the parents. Example shown by the parents affects how children perceive their God and religion. The religious ritual practice training should start as early as possible.
- Intellectual aspect- Leave a major part of this to teachers at school to pour information necessary to their brain. Of course support from parents is crucial. However, learning is not only come from the classroom but also at field, home, supermarket, mosque and many more. huhuhu
Face to face, heart to heart session between the parents and teachers
Lastly, parents had a chance to meet the class and subject teachers that teach their children. I was part of the teachers who need to consult the parents about their children.. huhuhu.. This session reminds me of my parents who have made us who we are today. God has enlighten them with a very little bit of His Rahman, Rahim, and other characters (0f His names). The result is tremendous, beyond my expectation. Subhanallah, Alhamdulillah, Allahuakbar. Thank you Allah. Thank you Maa and Abah. huhuhu
