It really is crazy how expensive schooling has become. My daughter will be going to Parel Vallei High in Somerset West next year. The fees are scaring me off big time!!!
With the eldest going to PV and the youngest being at Somerset West Primary... there really wont be lots of surplus cash for lots of luxuries sw3ar :wall: :boohoo: :thumbdown:

I have a question or two, very personal so dont answer if you dont want to.

1- Are you putting money away for your kids tertiary education?
2- Are you going to want them to study further after high school?

1. Well, I do t believe in study policies. It's a rip off AFAIK. I'm paying extra into my bond and will use that savings to pay for their first year. They need to take loans for their further years of undergrad so that they can accept full responsibility. That's what my parents did to me and I felt it achieved the end goal.

2. The days of expecting straight forward, low demand degrees to secure you a job has come to an end. I've tasked both my sons to start with high demand trades which I will fully fund. I will then fund their first year post trade studies as indicated. They both agreed with one wanting to do electrical light current and the other wanting to pursue network engineering.

This l1k3 ...I keep my son motivated on this point as well. He wants to be a mechanical engineer' I asked him why and he said because he likes to know how stuff works. I would like all 3 of my sons do become skilled workers whether its a engineer or a architect or surgeon. Do something that matters

I have an additiinal motivation...
Look at any country that you would like to immigrate to. Chances are that these trades will be in demand.
My sister is in nz and have extended family in aus. I want the 2 of them to have the ability to go over and have immigration as an option.

That's not nogal one of the motivating factors I give him. I just always tell him he can be great and do anything he sets his mind two. We usually have check in sessions once a week where we sitdown and discuss whats going on in his life, any questions he would like to ask me (and believe me he is not to shy to ask lol ' (I have had to explain condoms, jinn, why do people murder etc :wall: ) but that's the trust relationship I want with my boys.

He out of his own said he wants to accomplish 3 things
-to be hafith Quran
-become an engineer
-become a springbok.
I encourage him and told him anything is possible so he must go for it. I think our people are so guilty of limiting themselves.

If your kids believe in themselves they will prosper. Plus he is wys deen comes first :mrgreen:

Masha Allah... You are guiding him well bud!

Nah... I would like my sons to think different to the way I was raised. Being CT born lulls you into thinking that this is the only way people live. I would like for them to see the world and be appreciative of where they come from.
My sis in nz lives in the Christchurch SA Muslim enclave. Like little CT there lol

@psykes, not just our kids believe in themselves but also see us believing in them. Thats a major help IMO and your help is already showing him you believe. Keep it up brother

@spoony, yes for 1 and 2. money being put away and definitely want her to study further. Have also showed and explained bursary's to her. Fortunately for me she fully understands how much a bursary helps and has promised to try her best to get one. She's also confirmed she'd like to be a doctor one day and is already watching and learning what doctors are about... i wish i was this focused at the age of 12 lol
