彤彤的小学第一天

(2006-08-16 01:17:36) 下一个
I walked with her to her school. On the way, bought fresh bread for her for school break. I told her to concentrate in the course and listen carefully to the teacher so that she can learn everything. Like the other parents, I stayed in the classroom for the first half hour to observe how the course ran, how the young teacher welcomed her pupils. I observed my own kid. She was so excited, curious, shy and tried to be good... Yesterday evening, I have prepared everything in order for school use till late. Now she has her beautiful school bag and other nice things, very happy and satisfied. I think that is all I could do for her as a mother, --to try to prepare good conditions for her. But she is setting off and she is going to walk out by herself. It is raining hard ourside. I walked back alone. I really hope she will keep herself on the right way up, like me as a little girl. I remember my first day in the school when I was 7, I put my hand up to become the monitor in the class. With very strong self respect, I always tried to push myself to become the best to be qualified as a leader.--I still dont know how this belief came to my mind, must be a gift from the birth, and now how I wish my own kid to inherit this character, so she can steer herself without a lot of help from the parents. What can I do more? I am a little bit sad because of her unpredictable future. she is departing and leaving...

just_4_fun 回复 悄悄话 Ah, I see. With that I like what my Aussie colleague said: we parents can only be out there to help them if something happened.
简妮真人 回复 悄悄话 I also dont mean that my daughter should become the best. but nowadays there are so many problems with teenages in school,--drug, sex, crime, ect. some kids without enough discipline will just be out of control. that is what I am afraid.
just_4_fun 回复 悄悄话 I still think you shouldn't have worried too much. She doesn't have to be the best as long as she is healthy both mentally and physicaly. At times we do need to take a leaf from Westerner's book,try to give our kids more freedom and space to learn lessons at their own cost. I knew it's hard for us Chinese parents to do that, however at least we can give it a go. I honestly don't wish my daughter to value career and success in the way I do.I only hope she could grow into a complete and graceful individual one day.
