"Freedom to live and to think about life for its own sake is important and even essential to a child. Since we can't know what knowledge will be most needed in the future, it is senseless to try to teach it in advance. Instead, we should try to turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned." -John Holt.

Not my way anymore. 30 July 2010
I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked into the EnHui's bedroom,
" Tambourines and Treacle Tarts! "
She decorated her bed frame and added a 'cupboard' for stationery.
Another 'cupboard' for toys and a window with Halloween theme
Two tables from the study room has been shifted to the bedroom.
Though I noticed she was decorating her room, behind close door, the day before, never did I know the changes was this much. Oh my. I was about to blow up.. then I saw her drawing.
It is such a happy drawing, with the caption "I LOVE TO PLAY"
That must be Hui's drawing. It is a rainbow. She has been trying to paint rainbow lately.
Then, I saw she completed another piece of sums.
Dad's drawing. Impressive. Never attend art class at all.
I think maybe she needs her table in her bedroom. I decorated my own room.. and why not her.
