Christmas present

Posted on: December 25, 2019

The video a performance of the Christmas carol, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. That was also one of my responses to a parent who complained that the end-of-year vacation was too long.

Her complaints were that her children were restless and adults needed to keep them occupied. She was also concerned that her kids fell behind on mother tongue lessons.

This is Singapore and so we complain about someone else’s complaints, especially if the latter sound stupid. This site hosts some choice reactions.

But since it is Christmas, I present some thoughts in the form of questions:

  • How about offering the gift of childhood to kids?
  • Why not teach kids how to rest or to organise themselves?
  • How about some empathy for teachers who need a break from taking care of children for 40 (or more) weeks a year?

Lest I sound like a scrooge, I close with two more Christmassy YouTube videos.
