Tree,

In Hong Kong there has trees over four hundreds years, and the oldest tree recorded on earth and still living is over five thousand years. In human, we will not live such long, in average it is around eighty years.  But as we count down our family tree, it will be over six thousands years.  Old family in the past, the family sizes were rather big, but now it is quite small.  Many families only have single child.  Most in general, parents will put all their attention, effort and expectation on one single child.  Common education has its advantages, but may not fit all type of children. Some children really need some different way to help them. Recently I read a passage from one School Principal in Singapore and I like to share with you.

 

“Dear Parents, 

The exams of your children are to start soon.  I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.

But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Math. There is an entrepreneur, who doesn’t care about History or English literature.  There is a musician, whose Chemistry marks won’t matter. There’s an athlete, whose physical fitness is more important than Physics.  If your child does get top marks, that’s great!  But if he or she doesn’t, please don’t take away their self-confidence and dignity from them. Tell them it’s OK, it is just an exam! They are cut out for much bigger things in life. Tell them, no matter what they score, you love them and will not judge them.

Please do this, and when you do, watch your children conquer the world. One exam or a low mark won’t take away their dreams and talent.  And please, do not think that doctors and engineers are the only happy people in the world.

With warm Regards. “

As you look through your family tree, it bear different fruits, gifts and talent children.  Some might not be as your expect, but accept it with thanks. They are all gifts from Heaven and mark a sound milestone in your family history.
