To motivate the children.
Last night Ojas proudly displays his cursive writing while doing his home work. He volunteered to do his home work in cursive. He says English Mam said she will give prize if we write in cursive. And even Tejas got caught up in the enthusiasm.
No amount of coaxing had worked at home. A word from the teacher and it makes a world of difference.
Or was it a promise of prize?
Or because everyone agreed to do it even my children were motivated?
Nevertheless, I am doubly convinced that the school has to push the children because we parents have only a limited time with the children and they spend more time in the school comparatively.
