TAN CHUAN-JIN: WE ARE ON SHAKY GROUND IF PSLE IS THE MAIN DETERMINANT OF OUR CHILDREN HAVING HAPPY CHILDHOOD

For those of you who feel that PSLE determines our children’s happiness, I understand your concerns. Many parents have different views on exams and assessment etc. May I suggest that we focus more on our own parenting efforts? I think we are on really shaky grounds if PSLE is the main determinant of our children having a happy childhood.

There are no perfect systems out there. PSLE is one point in a long journey. We as parents shape the experience by the way we approach it and the way we set and manage expectations.
