Hey people! I hope we're all doing well. What do you think about these questions sent to Linda Ikeji by a concerned mother? I know we have a lot of parents here and I would really like to hear what you think about this. See her mail below;
"Dear Linda, I am a worried parent. I wish to have the attached doc published on your blog for the public to see and for parents to be informed of what schools of this generation have become ( n.b their school fees run up to 200k per term). I think the questions are totally inappropriate and out of place for Nusery. The have replaced the learning of alphabets and numbers as well as the basic colouring of fancy objects for ambiguous questions for a Nusery toddler."
Parenting is something I'm very concerned and passionate about. Also being second-mummy (as I'm called by them) to two amazing little boys, whose responsibility it is, among other things, is to help with home work and other study assignments... Some times my older nephew in primary 2 brings home homework that I cannot comprehend (and I'm not daft. LOL). In cases like these I take pictures of the questions or equations and send to my elder brother (the family genius) via bbm and he answers, with the 'working' and all, so that I can explain it to my nephew.
Their education these days is a lot more advanced than ours was and I think that's a good thing. Yet, these questions for children in nursery school have got me feeling undecided. What do you think; are nursery kiddies better off learning numbers, alphabets, colours and shapes or would more advanced work be to their benefit?
Ps; TTB readers, one of us sent me an email and this is part of it; "My bag got snatched from me that night after we spoke, both my phones, my school fees receipts, money and a lot of other valuables were in that bag. So, right now i'm virtually absent until I get a new phone-God knows when."
She's one of us but she didn't ask me to do this so I don't want to mention her name. But when we spoke that night I remember saying to her that it was late at night and it was really quiet around her, and I asked her how safe it was to be out that late and talking on the phone.
I really want to help her out with this (she's still a student), so I thought to ask you guys; anyone want to help out with a phone and/or some cash? She's based in PH and is the first blog reader I met through the blog, and the ONLY reason I'm posting this is because I've met her, we talk occasionally and I know for certain that she was robbed (so please don't mail me and tell me a sob story and expect me to post it, because I won't.)
If you want to help this blog reader out please mail me. Thank you.
