all of us are proud of our own kids right? but there are points where you are proud at the extreme level.. yesterday she went home and told me her teacher gave her a letter, an invitation to this mathematics training guild to be held in an exclusive private school here in our city.. it is a school ran by the chinese community anyways i read the letter and found an opportunity here as this will be like a review session for her, she will learn math at a different degree without the pressure of grades and the pressure of exams, they will be taught to LOVE MATH! The students picked here are like the chosen ones in the room with potential..i am so proud that my daughter was picked. it will be every saturday morning at the private school. When she showed it she was a bit hesitant because she was thinking of the fee, as it has a fee of 600.00 pesos, she knows we are in a tight spot right now but i told her i would make sacrifices and pay that so she could learn more. When i told hubby about this he was also hesitant and i said i would make sacrifices of bringing her to that school every saturday... because student who went through this reviews have higher chances of passing also the Dep-Ed Metrobank challenge and the price is a full scholarship, they choose very very few.. i had friend back in college who passed this and used the scholarship.. so yes i am positive about this and my daughter will learn more here and i will support her all the way. i know parents here would also do the same thing to support their kids.. anyone had the same experience? what have you done for your kids education?

Well you should really proud of your daughter. I don't have kids now but I know what parents could sacrifice for the goodness and sale of their kids.I experienced it with my parents before during my school days.So I used to excel in my study and always give them high grades for them to be proud of me.

Go ahead! By the way I have been a coach in statistics and if you want I can send her some review materials in statistics so that when she will be first year college she can join the contest.

Wow,congratulations to you and your daughter! That's an opportunity you shouldn't let pass. Your sacrifices will be worthy! I am happy with my daughter too today since their teacher told me beforehand that all first time new comers will undergo tutorials to catch up with the lessons since I enrolled her late(based on her age). Some of her classmates went to school last year so they are ahead of the first time schoolers. Today is the start of tutorial lessons and I was surprised that my daughter,according to her teacher,doesn't need tutorials,yahu! But then the teacher said that the only thing she is complaining with regards to my daughter is she is slow in writing and coloring and I know that,hehe! Will just have to practice her more in writing fast,hehe!

That is really great news for every parent. I would the same thing you do if that will happen with my son. My son just turn two by the way. But at his tender age he already knows a lot like the alphabet, shapes and colors, parts of the body and so many things I can't imagine how he could learn so fast. I am thinking of sending him to school this early but my husband said it will be too early for him and just let him enjoy his toddler years messing around the house. He has a point there anyway so I gave in. As for your daughter, I think you made the right decision to support her. 600 pesos is nothing as compared to the leanings she will get. Congratulations and good luck to your daughter.
