How can you support your child as he faces the bigger world?
The generation that we live in is different nowadays. I agree with the graduation speech of Lourd de Veyra’s at the UP Mascom class 2012. He said:
Hindi ko na siguro kailangang sabihin kung gaano kayo kapalad na mapabilang sa bagong henerasyon. Nabubuhay kayo sa mundo na wala ka nang karapatang maging tanga, maging mangmang. Dapat may maglabas ng ganyang slogan sa advertising, “BAWAL MAGING TANGA.” Nagtatampisaw tayo sa baha ng impormasyon.
The learners of today faces more sophisticated means of learning than before. As change is constant and inevitable, your child will face continuous challenges as he progresses in school and in life.
Last Saturday, a Kumon Press Launch was held at Chateau 1771, Greenbelt 5. The event was hosted by Ms. Jasmine Mendiola (blogger and mom to Mio of http://www.miofightscancer.com/)
A question was raised while I was there ” Is your child ready to take on the challenges and changes in our country’s educational landscape? How can you support your child as he faces the bigger world? “
