Thanks for writing back on my post. Yeah I am actually 100% agree with you that we should not give them so much pressure but what to do the study techniques in Nepal is just worse. We just have to study by head repeating all the time. We expect so much from our kids and I really feel bad about it. I know this freedom when I was studying in UK but back to my country, its difficult. I try so hard not to give them pressure. They have already expert in writing many things like country's name to national ambles. Their names to table up to 8. Mathe, social study, science, nepali and General knowledge. In school also they have all these pressure :(.

They are five maybe don't put so much pressure on them to study at 5 the basic they really need are how to count,sing,dance,colour in and maybe even write their name and few other minor words/sentences that's all they focus on in pre school and how to play nicely with others and sharing at 5 they shouldn't be "studying' they're still so young it may be very hard for them to remember and they might feel pressured and long as they can do the basics they will be far ahead in early learning school.
Don't pressure them so much,they're still babies enjoy every second because before you know it they will actually be studying at a uni etc.
