feed the monster you've created

This week, NST carried out on the issue of teachers gained a lot of money from giving tuitions to student. Since then parents started complaining 'bout the teachers should be more serious in doing their job. If they taught well in school then we, the students might not need tuition.

The parents also complained that because of all these tuition classes, they had to pay a lot on it including my mum. Well, what do you expect? Nothing's free in this world and certainly NOT education. What I'm trying to say is that parents shouldn't complain that they're paying too much for our education and they have nothing to save for their golden age and what not.

Well, who actually send us to all these tuition classes if not the parents? Who asked us to join the music classes, take up art classes and learn to pick up French if not the parents? The children didn't ask for all these. It's because of the pressure from the family members especially our parents that wants us to score with flying colours in our academics that we have to go for all these classes.

I know that they meant well but the least they could do is stop complaining 'bout the high expenses of all these tuitions and classes. You created the monster and now you have to feed it. You don't expect to just let go of what you asked for.

Let us enjoy our childhood and teen years in an unburdenful environment.

elei elei elei...if parents don't expect much of their children, imagine the cost in old age.It will be even more! :)

Kids do not pay much attention in class so they bring bad grades home.So do parents have any other choice but to send them to extra classes.The least the Monster can do is to stop whining.You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Love: Mom :)))

haha..your mom's right.actually,tution sounds fine to me,but extra classes,like music lessons and art classes,like u said,are kind of a burden to those who didn't ask for them.but what can we do about it anyway,right?

well, if the "creator of the monster" (parents) stop pressuring us sooo much, then maybe we, "monster" will stop whining and bring back gud grades, probably.......

nah..YOU put the pressure on you, my gal.It is me who usually say tidur awal, tidur awal...bawak balik B pun takpa..but no...you want to stay up till late.

I think you should learn to be responsible for what you CHOOSE to do instead of blaming your wonderful, thoughtful Mom. :))

well, i want to bring back A's so that i can make u and dad proud. Even if u dun't mind me bringing back B grades but the man of our family minds. so the pressure is still there.

And doesn't mean if i write this post on this topic i dun't love you n dun't appreciate what u've done for me all this while.
i still love u and will always do. :)

the trick is to enjoy your schooling days and your sch exams..that way no pressures... :)

Your dad is OK.Even if you bring Bs home, he will still love and will be proud of you cos' you've put in your effort.Tak payah la belajar sampai keras tengkok!

Just study consistently and not try to cramp everything in the last min.You know the nasi lemak story : it's like you force 60 bungkus nasi lemak to eat within an hour/a day -- if you do last minute studying. :)
