KiDs WilL aLwaYs bE KiDs...

My daughter has just registered to a new school. It's a private Islamic school where they ensure the teaching and learning of intergrated knowledge. My first impression...well what can i say? It's still too early to pass any judgment. I reserve my expectations and would rather wait and see. So now I would send my daughter to school every morning. But today I had the opportunity to stay back for the school assembly- the first held for this year. The school has large speakers so from far i spared my time to listen to the short speech delivered by the school's principal. There was nothing exceptionally unusual about the speech. She stressed on the daily discipline that students have to abide while present in the school compound i.e. no running...no pushing...no fooling around...no throwing litters everywhere..etc. The students were sitting down so i couldn't tell whether the information transmitted has been truly absorbed. Anyhow, after singing the national anthem, the students were instructed to make their way to their respective classrooms....and yes...they had to walk in line. But kids will always be kids...no matter how many times you remind them...or reprimand them...or even scold them...they will do the complete opposite! In the next split second...i could see that almost all of them started dashing up the stairs and pushing their friends while making their way across the corridor. I let out a tiny giggle...shaked my head and simply accepted the fact of nature that kids will always be kids...Even us adults may have the small child inside us sometimes...

Among the first things I do this morning,..checking out your post! True and interesting enough. It's really hard to make them focus..focus, i always tell my son. but, when i look back, i sometimes realize, he's the reflection of me!
