First Day Of School

The boy is in top class this year as his school starts class streaming from Standard 4.  When I went to fetch him from school, he showed me his sulky face and complained that his English teacher, also the discipline teacher was not being reasonable.  Apparently, half of the class got punished for not bringing their English textbooks.  She made them stand throughout the two English sessions and the boy was unhappy with the unreasonable treatment on the first day of school.

Boy: Mom, this's just unfair.  We didn't even get our timetable until today. Teacher Tan is very mean. I think she hates me.

Mom: Boy, it's a mean and cruel world out there.  It's a good training ground for you here, you know.  I think you should hate me instead.  I was the one who stopped you from dragging all the books to school. I am the culprit.

Boy: No, mom. It wasn't your fault.  I don't want to hate you.

Mom: *Teasing him more*  No, I am the culprit. You should hate me and not Teacher Tan.

Boy: I choose not to hate you because you are my family (member).  Teacher Tan is so mean and she's not reasonable at all!

Mom: I think I should thank Teacher Tan by getting her a basket of fruits... hmmm.. maybe a bouquet of flowers? What do you think, boy? *evil grins*

Boy: *he gets so annoyed* What??!! And why??!!

Mom: I trust with a teacher so strict as this one, you will score full mark in your English test this time and look, I have never seen so many notes written in your daily homework record book before! *evil laughs*

Boy: *Getting more annoyed* Are you sure, mom??  I admit I pay more attention when the teachers are strict but do you really have to get her something??!!

Mom: Joking only la..  I just want to cheer you up..

Boy & mom: LOL.....

Joke aside, me too think the teacher was being unreasonable.  Poor boy, he's the only one landed in the top class.  His classmates from Standard 3 scattered everywhere from the 2nd top to the last classes. Good and bad being in the top class, guess the only thing I can do is to toughen him up, further.

I let my girls bring all the text books to school on their first day. I know some teachers are like Teacher Tan.

By the way, school starts, revision resumes, tuition resumes, TV and Computer halts.

Top 3 in the form will entitle to go Kidzania again in year end. Fail to do so, stay at home.
