It is a parent-led initiative to raise awareness on the increasing pressure & academic stress on our kids...
Here I share my PSLE score & if 235 defined me...
I know, these numbers were not ideal to many but to me that’s a WOW for what I put in.
Did I struggle in the system? No. Neither did my siblings & niece. They did well. How? Just because we are motivated individuals. We were given the freedom to study & PLAY/EXPLORE at our own pace. We were held responsible for our actions which helped us understand ourselves better & focus on what mattered to us.
Did these numbers define me?
Nothing too impactful since I was fortunate enough to have the freedom to go for what I am passionate about with core values instilled in me.
Surely, I had my share of battles from the harsh realities of life & unwanted discrimination in our society. However, I never failed to find alternatives to get life going great again.
Today, I run a promising enterprise. It’s called Motherhood. My office is anywhere that’ll inspire me & my kid. I get to explore my passion on the science of child & health development.
I share creative ideas with my husband for his business.
I ✅off my list on having a happy family, traveling to dream destinations & pursuing an acting career.
I am living life not because of grades but because of grit & values.
I am not insinuating that we shouldn’t care about studies or grades.
I just hope parents can SHOW their child:
Do your best at school & in everything. Focus on what matters to you and be passionate about it.
It’s you & your drive for a constructive life that will define & impact your future.
With this post, I sincerely want parents & society to understand that it’s time to evolve. Shift our mindset & perception on capabilities & success. Every kid learns & thrives differently. Offer the kids space to express themselves, nurture their core/strengths & prepare them for a career based on qualities.
I also hope we can tweak the education system to strive for more balance & alternatives that’ll set our kids up for a future of a whole new paradigm. #lifebeyondgrades #morethananumber
