Thanks to our Parent Association, we had a wonderful alumni parents sharing stories of their kids’ different ways of learning and growing process with our current parents. In this sharing, we have witnessed the fact that different kids have different ways of learning and different talents that should be recognized and respected. With enough support from parents and schools, all kids can shine in whatever fields they enjoy and will pursue. We heard the stories of conflicts and confrontations between generations, stories of different personalities, interests, and development of kids even within the same family, how kids mature and change in college and how parents suffer and joy in their kids’ growing process, all of which not only shed different lights of parenting but also pinpointed the importance of parenting and parental expectations on students’ later development in life. At this new era of STS world, every filed of studies is important and with its own value. It should no longer be the emphasis on any singular discipline, but on inter- or multi- disciplinary approach of studies and collaboration. At PAS, all kinds of student talents are supported to be further developed. Therefore PAS students are encouraged to pursue their hearts and talents, not just the STEM fields as how traditional education views.If parents and educators can support students’ interests and talents as their first priority, every kid can fly and shine in his own field of studies as well as his future career involvement. After the sharing, Parent Association even prepared a lunch gathering for the parents and alumni parents to further interact and communicate. We had a very good time with all the present parents.
