My daughter didn't do well in her final term science exam. Some of the questions were simple and direct yet she got them wrong. I discovered she had problem recognizing some chinese characters.
She claimed that she NEVER learnt "白昼" before. But I found that 2 chinese characters printed big and clear on her textbook!
"YA ho... actually i learnt that before..." she said softly.
Obviously my artistic daughter was DISTRACTED by her own drawing of bird singing & perching on a lamp post!!!
