BUKIT LANJAN: Parents also need to be motivated …
Parents, whenever invited, are urged to attend motivational forums organised by community leaders to help keep them informed and updated on education matters and developments.
Such forums will not only benefit parents but also their children, family members, society and the nation.
“Raising children to become mature and responsible adults is both challenging and stressful. Parents do need to take time off to relax and be motivated,” Gerakan Deputy Speaker Syed Abdul Razak Alsagoff said.
He said such forums were aimed at attitude building and improving cum widening communication skills.
“We all need to always update ourselves to build up our positive attitudes. Communication skills cover everyone, especially our children,” he added.
Syed Razak said parents also need to be reminded on the importance of ensuring that their children not only master their mother tongue language but also English as the universal language for science and commerce.
Syed Razak, who is Gerakan’s nominee to contest N.37 Bukit Lanjan in the comiing 14th General Election (GE14), said co-curriculum activities must also be given serious attention.
“Remember this. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” he added.
Speaking on the sidelines at a Motivational Forum For Parents On Education organised by Subang MyPPP at SJK (T) Effingham in Bandar Utama on April 26, 2017, Syed Razak said one of the important aspects at motivational forums “are the basic survival tips”.
