Doing Revision With Alycia… Part II

Coaching Alycia in her homework and doing revision with her require tons of patience.   Each time I sit with her over her homework or revision, I would try really hard not to loose my cool and blow my stack at her coz I am an extremely impatient person.  Being too pushy and hard on her will only frighten her and jam up her mind…. though I must admit that at times I did raise my voice and said nasty words to her…. which I feel really bad afterward.   So most times, I use the carrot on the rabbit to motivate her. I use food to bribe  motivate her…. and it worked…. coz she’s a real foodie, just like her daddy. 


I used the Deepavali cookies that my Sikh neighbor gave us to reward Alycia if she got her sinonim and antonim (in Bahasa Malaysia) correct…. and I could see that she tried her level best. Her eyes were just fixated at the cookies and she was almost salivating as I asked her each of the sinonim and antonim last week, muahahahaha…

Picture taken on Sunday.  We did the revision over lunch as we did not have much time left.

  1. gosh..i think this is way beyond a 5 yo…kids in malaysia gotta juggle 3 languages…i went through the same system but i dont remember learning all these in pre school 🙁

  2. My stress is away when looking at Alycia smiling. She does this all the time, doesn’t she? How cute that is! Wish I could meet her, hold her a bit, hear her voice, see her smile in real life one day. My big desire!
    ** Got to get married and have a daughter! By the way, my wife in the future should look at Alycia’s photos 8 hours a day (to be able to give birth to a girl that looked like Alycia ^^, 80% would be fine then). Regards!
