The most valuable and pleasant thing for parents is when a child says that she likes going to school, enjoys getting an education, that everything is interesting to her, that she has learned a lot of new things, and even today during The Parents Day we met with teachers and each of them tries to focus on positive aspects, without going into criticizing. In other words, all teachers try to stay focused on what a child is good at, and this is also exciting for us, because the only thing we could do as parents is to find the strengths of our child and try to develop them. I truly believe that in this regard the school provides tremendous support, since it really advises and highlights the aspects where a child is doing a good job and is interested in.
