If you are wondering what to get for your child this Christmas, (after buying him the latest PSP last month) we at AHEAD have come up with some suggestions:
- Books – kids today are fast ‘unlearning’ the art of reading. Which is a shame because as we all know, books are very important in the development of our brains and imagination. As parents, it is our duty to instill in them the habit of reading. There are lots of authors out there whose books are avidly read by kids and adults alike. Only goes to show that books are for kids of all ages!
- Language Lessons – These can be in English or in any other language that your child expresses an interest in. Practical? Of course! A seemingly fleeting interest in the French or Spanish language might be an early sign that a budding multi-linguist is in your midst. Introduce your child to the idea that he can do and be anything he wants to become.
- Summer Courses– You might be thinking that summer is still months away. True. But by the time summer comes around, you will be too preoccupied to plan for something that needs to take effect right away. There is also the risk that the classes you and your child are planning on enrolling in will be fully booked. The –ber months are usually when companies and businesses give away discounts and promos. Big savings for you, especially if you have plenty of kids to give gifts to. For teenagers who are to enter their Senior year in High School next year, a good present that they will surely appreciate is AHEAD’s UPCAT Review Course. Everyone wants to get into a good university, and though your teen might balk at the extra ‘studying’ she has to do during summer, a few sessions will surely make her change her mind.
The good news is that AHEAD, the review center with the most number of successful entrance examinees, is offering a great rate to those who would reserve slots for next year’s summer review sessions. Up to fifteen percent discount has been given to those who have booked as early as October and this promo is ongoing until the end of this year. A great gift that would definitely outlast the battery of that portable DVD player your child might have started to show interest in.
