Happiness in Life is Made

"O, happy the soul that saw its own faults" – Rumi

If you want to buy something for your children, “buy” for them EXPERIENCE

on January 28, 2012

As parents we always want the best for our kids. The book by Sir Ken Robinson entitled The Element was the triggering factor for my husband when it comes to buying experience for our kids. Exposure to sports for example is our way to identify their talents and support their interest, and for our boys it is football (soccer).

For that reason, the boys were so excited when we enroll them into a football academy. After a year of training almost every weekend, we can see that they appreciate and respect this game that encourage team work, good individual skills and excellent fitness level even more. Rujhan even bagged a gold medal last year for U8 tournament and Itqan scored  a hattrick of 3 goals for the U10 tournament.For us as parents, eventhough training over in Singapore will take up our weekends due to traveling and the long queue of vehicles at the check-point, we are more than happy to use the time as bonding sessions.

If you have never read The Element, I strongly recommend that you grab a copy and I can assure that you will look at success and education like never before. Happy reading!
