Another school year has ended, a lot of happy parents are proud of their child’s academic achievement as Facebook feeds are filled and flooded with well wishes for children graduating in pre-school, elementary, high school or college. Congratulatory remarks and photos on honors and awards garnered by these young achievers are posted in most social media networking sites. Both the child and the parent in my opinion must be applauded for this great academic accomplishment. Parents play an important role in helping their child appreciate their education - which is proper motivation, encouragement, supervision and support in assisting their kids to fulfill their potential.

My eldest son, now 23 years old is focusing on his career enrichment while my youngest son, 13 years old has just finished grade 7 with an academic award that called for another family celebration.

One of the proudest and priceless moments in parenting is to have children who excel in their academic performance. Education is by far the most precious intangible heritage a parent can give to their children. Good education can bring good life as it help inculcate good virtues, proper reasoning, good judgment, as well as accumulated knowledge wherein one’s potential can be used to a maximum extent.   Education is one of the crucial factors which formulate the persona of a person. Giving rewards for academic achievements in my opinion is just one of the ways in showing appreciation to our kid’s hard work in achieving academic excellence. In my experience in parenting two academic achievers, giving gifts motivates them more to study harder. As I keep on telling them if they will continue to concentrate and give importance to their studies it will definitely benefit them in the future.
