Is Marian in favor of Zia’s early education?
Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera asked her studio audience in one of the segments in “Yan Ang Morning” if the parents are in favor or not for their child’s early education.
For Marian, every parent has their own parenting style. If they will agree or not in their child’s early education, it’s the parents who will decide, for as long as they will give their children the greatest gift – the gift of education.
Some audience mommies said that they wanted their child to enjoy his/her early years and will send them to school if they’re already six years old.
Boobay asked her if what age Zia go to school. Marian answered, “Ako, siguro, naniniwala kasi ako na ang edukasyon nagsisimula ‘yan sa tahanan. Mismong sa bahay mismo tinuturaan mo na ang anak mo. So, si Zia, siguro, nagle-lesson kami mga colors muna.”
But what is the ideal age for children to go to schooling?
According to Ms. Belai Gruenberg, an Interactive Psychologist and Alternative Holistic Education Advocate, it is advisable to send your child to school if they are at least five to six years old in Nursery, and six to seven years old in Kindergarten. She said that between zero to seven years old “naguupisang ma-develop ang katawan ng bata.”
If the parents want to send their child in school early, they can consider “play school” where their child can play and not really into academically centered.
Ms. Belai added, “Kung tutuusin ang pinakamaganda at ideal na paaralan para sa isang batang maliit ay ang tahanan. At ang pinakamahusay na guro ng isang bata ay ang kanyang magulang.”
