I just watched a video that is so brilliant that I wanted to share here.
It talks about the stuff that I have been talking about and I can’t agree more with Prince Ea who made this video. It’s so true but we still don’t get it right till now.
While the thought provoking video is mainly for educators, parents can take a cue from it: Grades don’t mean a thing and treat every child differently based on his talents, strengths, and aspirations.
It’s not easy to change the outdated mainstream educational system but there’s at least something you can do at home. At the minimum, do not treat your child the same just as one of the million products out of a factory because everyone is unique. Don’t ask him to comply to your standard just because you think he should. And of course, I hope you do not judge and value a child based on how he fares in exams.
Watch this video and you’ll know why.
