It’s finally here! The day that a lot of us has been waiting for!
There is excitement. There is hope. There is an expectation. There is fear. However, a lot of times, we forget. There are a lot of children who do not know how to handle their feelings when things are not what they have expected.
What are the best gifts we can give to our children on PSLE Results’ Release Day?
Our Presence is Their Best Present
It will be great if you can be there for them. If it is not possible, a short call before and after the results’ release is great as well. Rather than telling them how we feel, check on how they feel. Let them know no matter what the result is, you will always be there for them.
Celebration of Effort, Not Results
Regardless of the results, celebrate the effort that your children have put in throughout the process. What matters is that they have given their best. Let your child know that no matter what their result is, you still love them the same or even more. Most importantly, they have done their best and that what counts.
Never ever compare your child’s with others. Every child is special in their own way. It’s just that unfortunate that your child’s special talent is not graded in PSLE. However, trust us, beyond that, there are a lot of amazing things that they will achieve in the future.
With that, we wish you all the best for your results. Be it good or not what you have expected, embrace it. Learn from it and let’s move on to our next challenge.
