Single parent is hard - choice and fate
Y did not receive early admission to her dream univ, both of us are disappointed but we know it is a long shot. However, reflecting her performance, the academic ones are fine, obviously at or close to the top of her class. But attitude and behavior shows that she still have a lot to learn. Her subpar essay to the piano competition, unwillingness to work with admission consultant, choose to have leisure and social activities instead of working on study or helping others, shockingly untidy room, especially her attitude toward any criticism. I hope I have done a better job. Maybe I should start today.
One simple question that we all, including the kids, have to answer "What do you to do with your free time?" will determine ones fate. Is it
1. watching TV, playing video games, eat, or
2. social with friends and playing with social network, or
3. practicing, studying and learning, or
4. help others?
how does one spread the time on the four items, seals her/his fate.
