被踢出大學的電玩小子

說起電玩, 真是現代媽媽的痛, 尤其是很多有兒子的媽媽.  小的時候絕不讓玩, 大了一點他自己找到方法偷偷玩.  奇妙的是, 之後通常電玩會升級成為媽媽希望他好好表現的籌碼, “考100分就玩半小時“ 或者 ”每天乖乖的, 週末就可以玩一小時“.  再來, 一個小時變成二個小時, 後來變成整個下午, 甚至整天.   到了高中, 電玩開始成為母子關係大考驗.  媽媽每天諜對諜的明察暗訪看兒子是在專心做功課, 還是在網路上廝殺.  常常會有各說各話, 羅生門的狀況, 嚴重的還會演出全武行.  實際上, 我見過被父母摔爛的電腦手機也是不少.

進了大學, 媽媽不在身邊, 一切可方便多了.  無論讀的大學是遠是近, 是頂尖還是一般, 我所見過玩電動玩過頭, 學業成績不能通過最低限度, 而慘遭大學退學的學生越來越多.  你說 “那一定是不乖或腦子不清楚的學生, 才會搞成這樣!”  就我所見, 其實很多都是成績優異, 行為中規中矩的一些乖寶寶.  你說自我控制能力是不是遠比任何方面的優秀都重要呢?我還沒有告訴你其他一大堆被大學踢出來的個案呢! 自我控制能力學校是不會教, 補習班也沒法補, 只能靠做父母的你啦!

  1. Hello,
    I am currently an 8th grader and I have some question regarding choosing my classes. The high school I am going to is Rowland High, and I’m not sure if I should sign up for pre IB right now, for 9th and 10th grade year or AP. Should I register for pre IB and then drop out junior year to go into AP classes?I am also actually not quite sure with what the differences are between IB and AP. Is one better than the other for applying to good colleges?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi, Joanne. I cannot give you any specific advices without knowing your foundation, work habits and goals. But, I recommend you should read this article which explains the differences between AP and IB classes:

      Also, this is a link to my radio program. The 2nd half of the program is about the differences between AP and IB classes: http://www.bayvoice.net/b5/popular-programs/pp-education/2014/06/19/%E5%93%88%E4%BD%9B%E5%85%A8%E6%96%B9%E4%BD%8D%EF%BC%9A%E9%AB%98%E4%B8%AD%E5%8A%A0%E9%87%8D%E8%AF%BE%E7%A8%8B-ap-ib-weighted-honor-classes-184351.html

      Thank you!

    1. 你好,真的很抱歉聽到你的孩子被退學,孩子不成熟,真是令人頭痛.現在的情形,他可以先去社區大學,讀滿了學分,在試著想辦法轉去四年大學,不過真的要很認真才能達到轉學的標準.祝福你們!
