To Tuition or Not To Tuition?

I, personally do not agree in sending my kids as young as 7 years old (or younger!) to private tuition class. I pity to those kids who has to attend such classes only because their parents insisted to. Actually,do they really truly need to go for a tuition class? I wonder.

I ,myself never went to any private tuition class. Neither when I was 16 when I was about to sit for SRP nor when I was 18 when I was about to sit for SPM ( why I took SRP at 16 and SPM at 18? malas la nak exlain,penat dah...hehehe) . None of my siblings went to private tuition class. Actually, two of my younger sisters did attend private tuition class. Tu pon when they were already in form 3 or form 5. But, we still managed to pass the exams with flying colours, in fact 3 of my sisters received full scholarship from the government.

I think it's better to let kids be kids. Young and free. Kids nowadays start their formal education as young as 3 years old. At the age of 5 or 6 they are expected to be reading fluently. I guess it's really hard being a kid today. Parents expect great things from their kids that leave the kids with a lot of pressure to satisfy the parents.

At the moment, my eldest is 9 and she hasn't gone to any tuition class. She's doing well in school, still manage to keep the good grades and so does my second daughter. I don't see the need for my kids to take tuition . At least, for now.

then again, bila dah start spending more time with her and rethink balik... sian kat dia... not good to expect more from a 3 yrs old kid... just let her enjoy the excitement of being a kid...
