Getting Ready for the Coming School Year 2018-2019

My little girl is attended summer classes for toddlers in preparation for the coming school year. And even though it's just summer classes, I already bought a few school supplies (i.e. pencils, sharpener, plastic cover, erasers, colors). Yes, I am that parent! Haha! I am just so excited! School supplies, covering of notebooks and books, sharpening new pencils and all that.

Even when I was younger, buying school supplies made me so damn happy! I would rather spend my time in book stores than in toy stores. I would not use my new notebook unless I really need to, even if I have a lot of it! I love collecting notebooks and pencils! Also, do you remember those magnetic pencil cases? That was a dream for me! I had one which we bought very cheap at a market, and it didn't last long. :(

DISPELLING MYTHS: YOUR CHILD IS NOT BOBO A DYSLEXIA AWARENESS AND INTERVENTION SUMMIT

What is Dyslexia?

Honestly, I knew the term dyslexia when I was in high school or college already. We are not very much educated about it then, so thankfully we have these kinds of talks today. And as a mom, I am very much thankful to people who share there knowledge to us.

No parent would ever want to see his child struggle in school much more in the area of reading—the very core foundation to learning every subject there is in school. This is far worse for the child. The fear of being labelled and teased as stupid, dumb and slow is something he has to face and live with every single day. It could even be aggravated by his teacher’s perception of his condition: lazy, not trying hard enough, unfocused, and absent-minded. The fear even becomes bigger when the school strongly implies that the child is simply a poor student.
