I must admit that I was a little too harsh on him last Tues. It happened when he asked me a question.
"Ku Ku, spell your name!"
After I spelt my name to him, I got him to spell his name to me.
"What about your surname?"
He looked at me innocently. I raised up my tone.
"You do not know your surname?"
Fine. I wrote on his book and wanted him to read alphabet by alphabet - LOH KAI JUN.
I made a condition to him that if he failed to read out his full name (without looking at the book), then he could not play the games in my iPhone already.
He read few times. Sometimes serious and sometimes playful. When I asked if he is ready for the challenge, he knodded his head.
"Your surname? The first word in your name!"
He requested to look at the book again. Fine. Last chance and I told him to call me when he is prepared.
Again! "KAI JUN."
"Hey what is your surname? Gong Gong, PaPa, KuKu, SuSu & Lucas has it too."
He turned to my mum, his grandma to seek for help.
"Don't look at Ah Ma. She can't help you. Fine. No more iPhone for you!"
Suddenly, he cried out loud. He told me that he don't know! I scolded him. At the end, he slept with his tears and his milk bottle. I checked with his mum and realised that she has never taught him his surname before. Oops.... I have misunderstood him. I thought that he was taught before. I felt so bad after the incident.
