Since the current pandemic situation still prevents free travel between countries, Mayumi Shichida, the vice president of Shichida Educational Institute, participated in our second online roundtable discussion with parents. We hope to encourage communication with as many parents as possible around the world.
This time, we held a discussion with parents in Cambodia!
The discussion's main theme was thinking about how parents can nurture intelligence in 21st-century children.
From the perspective of how the brain works, the group considered what parents need to know in order to nurture their children's intellect.
They learned about the importance that Makoto Shichida, the founder of the Shichida Method, placed on education, and then they discussed the necessity and importance of Shichida Method education.
We received many questions from parents in Cambodia!
In addition to children learning Khmer, their mother tongue, many parents asked questions about linguistics, such as how and when to start simultaneously teaching multiple languages, including English, Chinese, and French. There was also a lively exchange about life and food habits, including children's daily behaviors and the foods and drinks to be careful about, such as milk.
Mayumi Shichida helped parents consider how to approach parenting and imagine how they want their children to grow up, from now until the time they graduate from school and begin working.
To support parents as they practice the Shichida Method, Shichida Educational Institute will continue to hold these online roundtable discussions in each country and strengthen our connection with the world.
