Chinese primary and secondary school students are under extreme academic pressure. However, on a recent Parents’ Day in Shandong, a father praised his son for being able to “eat and sleep” even though his grades were not good. He believed that this characteristic of his son would lead to success in the future, and he also acknowledged his mentor’s hard work. This video has recently become a hot search topic in China and has received unanimous praise.
Many Chinese netizens believe that the rare thing about this father is that unlike most Chinese parents who only force their children to work hard, he knows how to respect his children and How to guide, which is a sign of “high emotional intelligence.” And they will not blame teachers for their children’s poor performance like some parents.
According to extensive online images and reports from the People’s Daily, the father, who works as a psychological counselor, recently attended a parent-teacher meeting (China’s name for Parents’ Day) held in a primary school classroom in Shandong And did not hide this fact. That his son was studying, his grades were particularly bad. “This has caused serious disruption to our classroom. I also deeply apologize, but I still believe that he (the son) can have a bright future.”
The father said that there are two reasons why he is confident that his son will have a good future. The first is that his son is “mentally very strong” and his academic performance is very poor, but he can still eat, drink and sleep. He even praises this son.
He told that he is a senior psychological consultant, but his son’s mentality is stronger than him. After entering society in the future, a person’s strong psychology and high emotional intelligence are very important factors for success.
The father did not forget to praise the school on the second point, saying that the school management “is very scientific, rigorous and standardized, and the head teacher (class teacher) is very diligent and goes out early and comes home late.” “The parents have also paid a lot, and he also thanks the parents for their tolerance and understanding towards his son.”
The report praised the father for being a “big picture”, intelligent and loving, and expressing his views in a “high emotional intelligence” manner, which not only gave children more confidence and courage, but also reminded parents that Parents should encourage their children to have all-round development and develop their broader abilities and creativity rather than merely pursuing excellent academic performance.
The report mentioned that at the same time, the inspiration from this father is that parents should abandon the heavy burden of grades, create a comfortable and happy growth environment for their children, and believe that every child Will have their own strengths and opportunities for success. , Regardless of their academic performance, children deserve the confidence and encouraging attention of their parents.
Chinese netizens unanimously praised the father and acknowledged that such parents are rare in today’s Chinese society. Nowadays, most parents in China will continue to force their children to study only hard, which is tantamount to snatching away their children and making them live under immense pressure. Some parents will blame teachers for their children’s poor performance, leading to strained relationships between teachers and parents.
However, some netizens can’t help but worry while praising her. As he grows up, the pressure to continue his studies will become greater. “I hope my children can bear it, and my father will also bear it.”
