abcd

靖愷會說的越來越多,昨天就跟我們說"carrot soup"(他最近最愛的故事書),有時也會說"big dog",大狗,想想雖然只是短短兩個字, 當中卻已包含了形容詞和名詞,真不簡單呢!有時候靖愷也會說兩組字(如park, bubble)來讓我們造句(we go to the park to blow bubbles!)。愷愷,媽媽爸爸在等你說第一句句子呢!

很久以前我們已開始教靖愷認英文字母,現在他已學會了大部分,如今難倒他的大概就只有幾個吧?

我們暫時倒沒有教靖愷認其他字的意欲,但是那天看龍應台的《孩子你慢慢來》(一隻老鼠),看到這一段,突然有點反思:
(在說安德烈剛剛學會認字...)那種快樂,確實像一個瞎子突然看見了世界,用張開的眼睛。媽媽瞅著在地上像驢子打滾的小男孩,突然想到,或許幼稚園裏不教認字是對的,急什麽呢?童年那麽短,那麽珍貴。現在,廿個孩子從ABCD一塊兒出發,搶先認了字的孩子,大概有兩三個吧,反而坐在教室裏發呆。其他的小夥伴們嘰嘰喳喳興奮地發現字的世界。
是的,其實為甚麼事事都要搶先去學,快人一步呢?九歲就入讀大學的小孩子,是得到的多還是失去的多?只是,在"執輸行頭慘過敗家"的香港,沒有參加過學前預備班的孩子有幾人?一班學生裡又有幾人是真正一塊兒出發的?

I agree... Why pushing? Why forcing?
I am not talking about having a very long life. Let's say we live till 70. Only the first 23 or 25 years can be fun, not worrying about things in the offices like politics. Some may have to start working since college time. Also minus the first few years that we don't know what we are doing or we have no choice about what we want to do... end up we have only a few years of real fun... being naive...
