This letter that was uploaded to Reddit has hit a chord with readers when it comes to exams and testing of kids. Read what is said it will definitely impact you.

Recently in our travels, we came across a letter that has been uploaded to the popular site Reddit. This letter is apparently from a School Principal in Singapore who sends out a letter prior to exams to the Parents of the children.

The letter has truly resonated with readers as it makes a whole lot of sense. It reminds us that the exam result should not define our kids and that we should never allow our potential to be limited.

Before we share the letter from the School Principal, we thought you might appreciate this Infographic from Early Childhood Education Degrees. It references the 6 habits of highly effective parents. Talking, listening, playing and fostering are all key.

By limiting Tv and spending time outside in nature, you are going to end up with a more outgoing child who is brimming with confidence. Cuddling and snuggling is important for their emotional growth as is encouraging their creativity. Think about what you need as a person, so does your child!

This saying from Turning Leaf Services is an excellent reminder that each and every child is unique and has different talents.

We need to measure our progress against our own goals and not that of others. When kids realize that their biggest competition is themselves, they will view things in a completely different way. The letter that we are about to read that was apparently sent to parents prior to exams at a school in Singapore is something that we hope puts things into perspective for not only you, but your children.

“The exams of your child are to start soon, the School Principal Wrote “I know you are all really anxious for your child to do well.”  he then went on to share these words.

“But, please do remember, amongst the students who will be sitting for the exams there is an artist, who doesn’t need to understand Maths…
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, its 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 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.”
