Annual Parent teacher meet

I met sonshine's teachers ahead of the actual Parent-teacher meet. The teachers were kind enough to arrange us to meet earlier since i'm there everyday (to pick him up).
Both teachers shared that he is a very obedient and extremely well behaved boy. He is attentive and non disruptive in class. The mandarin teacher noted that he's love for learning is very strong and apparent. Like his past teachers, both teachers say he is academically strong.

His mandarin teacher shared that he takes his role/job very seriously. One of the example she gave was during the concert rehearsal, how he was so determined to get his steps right. She said although his dance moves were not perfect but that drive to want to do it right was commendable & will surely take him very far in life. No wonder, a couple of teachers came up to me and told me how impressed they were. I thought they were referring to his dancing! LOL!

I notice this attitude applies to all things relating to school- including his enrichment school. Be it the smallest of task from packing his school bag to his school work- he takes them all seriously. He listens to each and every instruction carefully and makes sure he executes them accurately- with or without my prompting. I am uncertain if this is a good or bad thing. Because i think it's driven by fear, fear of doing the wrong thing and being the odd one out. Yet, so far, i see nothing but good things resulting from this attitude of his. It spurs him to do his best, no less.
That said, he is not perfect. Socially, he still keeps to himself. Although he doesn't exchange many words, he does respond- only when needed. He joins in to play with his classmates minus the verbal exchange but comfortable with his friends. He is such a quiet boy that even when he's bullied by his classmates, he would simply keep mum. And he is quite an emotional little boy. He tends to cry, quite dramatically, over smallest of things and will cry like he lost his mother. No.Kidding. The teachers say we gotta toughen this boy up. Right, i am so going to check him in for taekwondo class- hiiaaaaak!

Of the feedback, i am most proud of is his behaviour in class. Over and over again, i hear the teachers say he is very well behaved. I am glad that he is not giving his teachers a handful. I have always been very proud of this aspect of my sonny. He's always been that good little boy, of course he has his moments. Yet again, i am not sure if it's entirely a good thing. He tend to get bullied easily because of his mild & quiet nature.

Overall, it was a good feedback. Nothing surprising though.
