Yay, school holidays are upon us again! Even though it’s just for a short one week, I welcome the respite it offers – a break from rushing in the morning getting the girls ready, and clearer traffic to work. But what I look forward most during the school holidays is the respite from homework!
With the new KSSR syllabus, there really isn’t that much homework, compared to the horror stories I heard with the old syllabus. Nonetheless, it still stresses me out as I have to ensure I get home early enough to coach Yiu Yiu with her homework. Otherwise, she’ll end up doing her homework late into the night and not getting enough sleep – she needs to wake up early even though she attends the afternoon session as we drop her off at the daycare in the morning before work. Sigh! Perhaps I should engage the service of a Los Angeles tutor to relieve me of this stress.
