I was sick yesterday after treating my two boys got sick. We were in bed, curled up because our heads were too heavy. I had a personality quiz from my FB feed, it was actually an MBTI test and I asked kakak if he wanted to take the quiz.
There are like 70-80 statements and the answers are agree or disagree. Kakak answered it, sometimes very quick, and sometimes he needed a deep thinking.
One of his answers surprised me.
As a parent, you would rather see your child grow up kind than smart.
His anwer was: Disagree. If you are smart, you know what is right. Being kind is just a part of doing what is right.
I asked him whether he thinks he is a kind person.
He said, of course I am kind. I am tactful kinda kind.
I asked him whether he thinks he is a sincere person.
He said, when I am kind, I am sincere.
Well then, I think I am raising a smart kid.
