Met up with Ah Lo’s teacher for the parent-teacher conference. He’s doing great. End of conference.

He’s improving in all areas and doing great on the materials taught this trimester. There were a couple of areas where he slipped, all because of careless errors. I was very pleased and not a bit surprise with his progress.

Again, I am one of those lucky parents who don’t need to spend a good chunk of time every night to review my children’s homework. From very early on, I’ve taught them the importance of homework is to develop independence and responsibility. I tried to stay out of their way, from everyday homework to bigger projects. However, if they ask for help, I try to keep my balance between my assistance and interference of their studies. So far, this works for us.
