This summer Winston and I signed up for a swimming class. We had one coach teaching us how to swim and last night is the second time of the class. I was not a good exerciser and did not workout much. A one-hour swimming lesson was so much for me expecially when I did not eat before entering the pool. I felt powerless after 45 mins passed, and I forgot how many times I told the coach that I was so worn out.
After we got home, I was helping Winston washing his hair, and
Winston said: Mother, I have something I need to tell you.
I said: OK, What is it?
Winston: You mentioned about being tired two times to the coach tonight.
This reminded me of my improper behavior in front of a kid.
Me：Oh, yeah. I did a bad feedback to the coach, right?
Winston: Yes, that is not right.
Me: Yes, that is a bad attitude for learning things. Thank you for reminding me. I will improve my attitute.
Winston: Do improve it next time. I forgive you this time.
I used to reminding Winston not to complain during his piano and violin lessons. And we discussed about his attitude after the lessons. And now he is doing the same to me.
I am glad that he also learned to discuss about things after we got home, instead of embarrassing me in front of the coach. What a good learner! And I believe he will pick up swimming skills very soon.
So, we do see parents from their kids. And we parents should always do as we say.
