Last 1 ½ years I brought Iman to Tumble Tots. I want him to socialize in the playgroup activity since he’s confined daily to his grandparents. So I thought it would be a healthy activity for him. After 2 classes, he’s still standing like a statue beside the wall which makes my hubby decided to stop. I don’t agree but follow je la. Since he’ll be attending kindergarten in 2011, I thought it would be better for him to mingle around with the children before he goes formally in. I takut Iman cry on his first day so just nak biasakan dia.
The program is just to steady him up and push some confidence in him plus to get him familiar with the environment and waking up time. So I had taken up a school holiday program for him. It’s a science project for 5 days course. Much to my surprise, the teacher thinks he has attended school before. Teacher kata “I thought he attended school before. Anak you smart! He talks a lot and mingle around” Pergh terangkat bontot aku, effect from aku terkejut and first time orang puji anak aku sure laa berkembang2 bontot aku hehehehe. Anyway I still have worries, bukan apa school holiday program ni orang tak ramai when the actual day ramai. Takut he become the opposite of what he is today.
