Making sure our children get the best education possible is one of the highest priorities of parenting. Just considering the fact that our babies are the next leaders of the nation of Singapore or the world at large is mind boggling. As parents we can get into a routine of just waiting for the school reports of how our children are doing in school, but we should be taking a proactive stance to make sure they have all the tools they need to excel in school. Our active participation in our children’s education lead us to Bukit Timah tuition centre for help on more than one occasion.
Each of our children needed tutoring in at least one subject to help them get the highest grades possible. Do I agree that every little detail of school performance should be reviewable by institutions of higher learning? No. However, the fact is that children are under great pressure to perform at incredible levels academically in order to get into the best universities and to get the best jobs. The stress of possibly lagging behind their peers can be overwhelming. This is why we went ahead and made sure they had excellent tutoring available to them by getting them to the Bukit Timah tuition centre.
We made sure to ask our children how they felt they were doing in their classes and to let us know if they needed any help whatsoever. They wanted to excel academically. They knew the stakes. Each of them have lofty goals and dreams that we feel are attainable if you have the right education. We wanted to make sure they got more than just passing grades. We wanted them to be at the top of their classes whenever possible. Reaching these heights in academic performance helped both their self-esteem as well as their university and career opportunities.
