Every parent wants their children to be the topper in the class. And they expect the children to outperform themselves in the field they are not so good.
The Singapore principals got this write and have written a beautiful letter to all the parents of children appearing for the exam time. It is evident the letter was sent out before a very important exam.
The letter was uploaded to Reddit and immediately it went viral across all the media.
Read the inspiring letter below:
The exams of your children are to start soon. I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.
But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Math. There is an entrepreneur, who doesn’t care about History or English literature. There is a musician, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter. There’s an athlete, whose physical fitness is more important than Physics. If your child does get top marks, that’s great! But if he or she doesn’t, please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it’s OK, it’s just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score, you love them and will not judge them.
Please do this, and when you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or a low mark won’t take away their dreams and talent. And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.
Image if we had only engineers and doctors in the world. The principal points outright to the today’s expectation scenario. The world would look different without a photographer, artists, businessmen, investors, retailer, entrepreneurs, traders, etc.
Creativity is limited only to your thinking.
