Our elders constantly reminded us when we were young, that the only thing a parent can give their children which cannot be stolen away from them is education. And that is what we are now carefully planning and preparing for our children. Especially that we have plans of migrating in the United States and their education there is one of our primary concern.
Since it's a different country, we expect that their system of education and their curriculum will somehow differ from what we have in our country, and that's what concerns us. Just in case that coping up will be hard for the kids, we are definitely open to the idea that we might need some help like tutoring for instance. And choosing a reliable and competent school tutoring, would be a crucial decision to make.
Moreover, since our daughter would be going to high school education a few years from now, we're just as concerned of her college education there. But considering that in the US, they have scholarships given to those who passed their National Merit Scholarship Program (NMSP), then it would greatly help. But getting the scholarship isn't that easy, to be able to qualify, one still needs to pass this eligibility and qualification test known as the Preliminary Scholarship Aptitude Test (PSAT). Whew, good thing there are PSAT tutors that would greatly help in providing the needed support to make students pass this exam, providing them a head start or edge compared to others.
Adjustment to changes isn't easy but we are truly confident that, with our support, proper guidance and constant follow up, our kids will make it through any challenge they might encounter in their studies and in life in general. Above all, we have faith in the Lord, that He will always guide them and provide for what is needed. All in His glory. Yahweh bless.
