I can't help but shout when I gladly saw Brian's improvement on his final exam. Chinese: 91. Math: 82. These scores are way much better than how he did on his mid-term, and also way much better than I expected previously.
Well, I think it is high time to hit my pocket now, since I have promised him that I will award him if he can do well on the test. So, I owe him now a big and a small robots. There is one thing I can be sure of-- it is more effective to educate our kids by encouragement than punishment. Though we might get the same outcome off the kids by scolding or beating; nevertheless, I truly think it isn't the way to do it.
