If someone wants to pursue his dreams, he will work hard for it, what more if there will be a reward for his accomplishment? Parents usually reward their kids whenever they do well in school and this is exactly what the proud father of James Russell Maullon did. The senior high school student from Pasay City South High School got Php9,500 from his father, Efren Maullon for getting an average of 95% during the first grading period. The teenage boy must have been very happy with this reward.
The proud father posted on Facebook about his son’s achievement and the reward he gave him. He posted a picture of the money and the list of students where his son was in no. 1. His caption says that since the average was 95%, he will give him Php9,500. He even jokingly said to his son on the post saying that he shouldn’t surpass his average for the next grading because he might get poor.
The post went viral on social media. Many netizens admired them and thought that they should also do this to their children to serve as an inspiration to do better. Many kids even tagged their parents saying that they should also get a reward for their grades like Php7,500 or Php8,000 as equivalent to their average too. As of September 1, 2019, the post got more than 2,000 comments, 3,600 likes and around 17,000 shares.
You can say that the post became a hit. This should serve an inspiration for both the parents and students. For the student’s part, they will really be more dedicated to their studies if they will be commended for a job well done in school. It doesn’t need to be a big amount of money but, there must be an appreciation for them.
