Interesting Read About "Classical Education"

Stumbled upon this story, "Why Chinese Mothers Are Superior"

Well they are not, but I understand what the author is talking about because of my Asian background.

  1. I must say, it is a powerful piece of literature. It truly shows the importance of encouraging others on being the best in what they do and not just settle for less. Even though I know that this applies to mothers and their children, this can also apply to ourselves as well. How many times have we tried to do something and then we talk ourselves out of our best by saying that we were never meant to do that? How many times have we seen ourselves as worthless and let it reflect by how we live our lives? We need to get tough on ourselves to be able to exceed our own expectations. The one thing that my teacher has told me is that if I want to be good at something, I need to devote my time into it and devote a part of myself into it until I master it. A good motivational challenge has always been a challenge that I made to myself. I dare myself to change who I am, what I do, and what I am capable of learning. So in saying, it is not just the motivation of our parents, but as we get older, we learn to challenge and motivate ourselves. Thank you so much for sharing! It has truly blessed my heart!
