I had a long conversation with my sisteret today. We talked about a lot of things mostly politics (NOT!) and economics (unending!) But what captured my attention the most is my 3 year old niece’s education. My sister said she does not encourage her daughter to study much and she lets her be. My sister doesn’t teach her and she tries to encourage my niece to play more rather than study and I think I do agree with her. WHY???
Because an almost four year old child studies:
Science: invertebrates, vertibrates (susko! grade four ako nung pag aralan ko yan!)
Math: fraction, addition and subtraction in 2 digits
English: Ay ewan! ini-engles akong maigi nung bata kuha na pati ang aking accent!
AMONG OTHER SUBJECTS!
In fernez we are all so proud that she’s at the top of her class, being the youngest and without any help, at mana sa tita nya…AHERMMM… but then again, is that normal education for a child of that age?
