Tuition centre is fine for me. But, some parents, they seem to forget that children are HUMANS too. They are not ROBOTS. Learning 3 to 4 hours straight?? Are you crazy?? Even a 30-minute lesson take them a hard work to focus, let alone a 3-hour lesson! Trust me, a 7 years old boy is seriously hard to handle. If he gets tired, no matter how tempting your reward is, he won't bother.
Oh, there's another not-so-nice news I heard. There are parents who send their children to tuition centre because they can't take care of them. Just imagine, a parent send their 4 years old boy to a tuition centre pretending that their child needs an extra classes for a few subjects. Like what? Your child had an important exam next year??
I dunno what the parents are thinking. Perhaps I don't understand their feelings or thoughts because I'm not yet a mother. Perhaps I dunno how hard it is to raise a kid. But I hope someday, when I have my own kids, I won't torture their childhood. I hope my partner will remind me of what I have written here.
