On March 17, I was talking with the headmistress of a kindergarten about several problems with stay-at- home children, mother education, junk food and nonsense games children had. I assigned several tasks to the headmistress.
1. To promote Chinese Culture Education from the beginning of reading Di Zi Gui.
2. To encourage parents to join the parent meeting instead of grandparents.
3. To advocate family reading activity.
At the moment, the headmistress was worried that children were too young to understand ancient Chinese prose, so parents and leaders wouldn’t support it. Based on my experience, I showed her concrete methods and expected to see results.
To my surprise, in just one month, my guidance brought amazing effects. Nearly 200 children had recited most paragraphs of Di Zi Gui; all the children could dance san zi jing chopsticks; and 38 mothers had applied to join the “Happy Mum Reading Club” I was going to establish.
The headmistress was very excited. Many education leaders learned about it and they supported and promoted all the activities I carried out here.
On Children’s Day, I wanted to hold two activities—Mother Education Lecture and All reading Di Zi Gui. Mothers’ quality, children education and townspeople civilization will change a lot in less a year. My cautious plans were carried successfully out and I believe we have a bright future.
Mr. Zhao and partners of Transparent Fish, I will bring good news to all of you. I believe I am worthy of your trust.
