Before I usually helped my nieces in doing their assignments and projects because I know the feeling of doing it all alone when I was still studying. Looking at them reminds me of the time when I was still a student and no one is there to help me with my assignments and projects. That is why I can’t just watch them alone and will not lend a help. It is not easy to do it alone, it is still best to have someone helping you and giving ideas, views and opinions. As the saying goes, “two heads are better than one”.
However, I realized that it is not good to help them always. How can they learn and being independent? So, I opted to just let them do their assignments and projects. If they asked for any help I will still help them but only when they desperate. Letting them do their stuffs is training them of being independent and for them to squeeze their brains. Also, for them to develop their creativity, skills and ability. Just like today, I just give her an idea and a theme as guidelines for her to come up with a nice design and interesting scrapbook. Hopefully the niece will come up with a nice one. By the way, it is fun watching her very busy doing her project. Good luck niece!
