【Mameshare】背着父母玩極限運動

 

不久前有個中二學生來到升學中心,他只得12歲,在屯門一間學校讀書。他來到公司的時候比較文靜,英文不佳,成績也不算好,對音樂、運動沒興趣。傾談中我問他最喜歡玩甚麼?答案令人嚇一跳:Parkour(港譯:飛躍道)!這是一項外國流行的極限運動,玩家一邊聽音樂、一邊毫無章法在高樓或天橋間縱身飛躍,身上不繫安全帶,驚險萬分。

 

他說小四開始在YouTube上自學,絕非受朋輩影響。第一次玩,純粹為執一個波,爬牆、爬水管過去對面大廈把球取回,覺得自己十分有型。我問他玩到甚麼程度,他稱曾在旺角兩棟四樓高的大廈之間飛身過去,甚至在屯門的天橋間跳躍時被捉,最後辨稱自己走錯路而逃脫。有次他曾經從天橋上跌下,痛得要命,自此停玩一年。他的眼神看來稚嫩,似乎全無意識過危險的存在,連父母也不知道他在玩Parkour。

 

我問他為甚麼不和父母分享自己的興趣?原來父母總是說他思想幼稚,因此早與他們停止了關於個人興趣的話題。由此可知,家長若習慣以高壓方式與孩子溝通,當他在外面出事,父母也可能慒然不知。情況就如孩子沉迷打機,你責罵他或收起遊戲機也毫無意義,他可以在手機上繼續打又或去朋友家打。所以當知道孩子愛玩極限運動,又或者沉迷色情網站之類,家長反而要灌輸正確態度,而不是用家長式的訓話責難他。

 

最後,我把這個學生配對去《嘩鬼上學去之農夫篇》C君同陸永讀的那間Mount Kelly,他們曾經在校園裡玩跳崖、爬泥漿等刺激活動。對於好動型學生,家長當知道他的興趣不如放手讓他嘗試,反而逼他學習琴棋書畫,只會適得其反。因為如果他不喜歡,有可能抑壓情緒,更會嘗試以Parkour之類的極限運動來發洩。萬幸的是這位學生迄今沒有跌傷手腳或頭顱,否則抱憾終生。因材施教從來是管教良方,家長要依據學生的興趣來選擇活動,方可事半功倍。

 

九月了,這名學生剛剛在Mount Kelly開學,我提醒他玩甚麼刺激活動都可以,謹記要做足安全措施。刺激與安全兩者之間,從來不應存在衝突。

#School Analysis
Considering its reputation, Oundle School may not catch up to Eton, Wycombe Abbey and else top elite schools. However, Oundle’s academic performance is among the best in the United Kingdom. As a traditional top boarding school, Oundle pays huge attentions to student’s holistic development, by providing them diversified extra-curricular activities. In addition, Oundle still implements the House Dining System, which is rarely remaining among uk boarding schools. It is also one of the reasons why Hong Kong parents making a beeline for.
The ratio of teachers and students in Bromsgrove School is 1:8, which is lower than the average among uk boarding schools. In addition, according to my school visit experience, Bromsgrove has the best facilities, that it is undoubtedly one of the best three campuses in the UK. Besides, Bromsgrove spares no expense to provide students comfortable environment, it even invests on the nearby hotel and transfers it into dormitories. As a result, students can possess the “5-star enjoyment” on campus. To conclude, Bromsgrove is definitely a prospective and globalised uk boarding school.
Brighton College is Britain’s premier private school and one of the Hong Kong parents’ favourites. To understand a boarding school, despite of looking at its educational tenet, diversified extra-curricular activities and academics results, it is essential to observe the boldness of the principal. 10 years ago, after Mr. Richard Cairns taking up the duty of the Brighton College’s principal, the school ranking raises from the 150th to the top 20th. In addition to promoting educational reformation, Mr Cairns is such a good principal, that he still strives for maintaining students’ curiosity at the same time.
