SINGAPORE - Next year, all my five children will be going through milestone transitions in their educational journey. My eldest child, 20, will be completing her polytechnic course and is considering her first career options.
My second and third children, 18 and 16, will need to think carefully of their post-tertiary and post-secondary education options. My fourth child, 13, will be in Secondary 2 and there will be subject combinations that he needs to choose by the end of the year. My youngest child, six, will begin Primary 1 next year. Our children will all have to make adjustments as they embark on these transitions.
