Lately I have come across several parents who are so keen that their children appear to be “well adjusted” and not make them “look bad” in front of the their (parent’s) social acquaintances that they end up with children who are thoroughly de-spirited and totally lacking that urge to experiment or learn anything new. Well I don’t really interfere with anyone when it comes to parenting decisions they take but it does bug me, to use a mild word, when these parents try to put down other children as being wrong and also imply lack of culture.
Thankfully these very same parents also, most of the time, think that “boarding schools” are good – at least their children will have a chance for themselves.
Yes! Aasim’s school re-opened.
On the very first day he walked up to the podium during the general assembly and talked about FIFA World Cup. Honestly I never knew that he even knew about, let alone was following the event.
Unfortunately both his girlfriends have moved to other cities to which he said “What a waste!”.
Other than that it is life as usual for him and us….
