Hi everybody,
My name is Sintha and I have been a piano teacher for around 2 years. I am from Indonesia, and I live in a small city where there are only few people can play piano. I know that I am not that good in playing piano. But I am the best player in that small city, hehe.
After sometime, I have around 12 students who are all children to teenager. My problem is this, sometimes they learn because of their mother ambitions . So, they don't really want to learn. They don't do their homework, they are ignorant, etc.
Can anybody tell me what to do with the situation?
(I told their mother but they kept on insisting me to teach their children)
Thank you for reading this.

Or teach em both. Maybe the child will pick up some good 'work ethic' skills from the experience. Or maybe not, but it is another path to explore.

(not a teacher, though, sorry I just now figured out what forum I was in)
