LT 2021.04.11 Ms. Trafimovich allowed me to have another video call with my Kids on Sunday 11th of April. She proposed that we can do it every Sunday at 18:00 Minsk time.

Yesterday was another great day that gave me the energy and motivation to continue to do whatever I can for my two beautiful Kids.

Ms. Trafimovich allowed me to have another video call with my kids on Sunday 11th of April. She proposed that we can do it every Sunday at 18:00 Minsk time. I am very thankful to her, but at the same time, surprised with the 180 degrees of change in her attitude. From cutting me off completely for four years, she is now willing to cooperate somehow. This is a good start, and I don’t have anything to say about it, I am grateful.

We agreed to let me study Maths and English with my kids, and I will do my best to make Anthie’ catch up again with the Math skills she possessed once upon a time. I cannot forget my daughter Anthie’ when she told me, “I must do something otherwise, it will be too late” (I have difficulties digesting this, my daughter Anthie’ will be 9 y.o. in June!!). Therefore, I will do my best to help her, and we will succeed; nothing can stop us (!?).

I promised to buy (in Belarus) or send them a computer from Sweden to start to have English and Maths lessons through “Meet”. A Google application that I am using when I am teaching Math at the Lyceum where I work. It is very challenging to do this through Viber.

Thus, and to express myself mildly, I cannot accept the argument that the school Anthie’ attends focuses on children’s talents and what children are good at!? For me, this is just an argument to justify the failure of the school Anthie’ attends. Namely, to provide a universal and good education so the children will have an excellent fundament to stay on. Instead, this so-called religious school chooses the easy way out and says, “We focus on children’s talents and what they are good at”! How convenient! This must be an innovation from Andrei Lemeshonok and the Ministry of Education of Belarus.

One of Anthie’s talents is music and Piano playing. But she was also talented in Math! Thus, nobody seems to care! Research says that children with a musical ear are usually good at Math and should therefore develop these two skills/talents in parallel! Nothing, and nobody speaks against it.

Therefore, to all of you irresponsible Clowns and Con Artists, time to wake up. It is an “Elementary School” my Kids attend. That means that it is now they create the basis, the fundament of their lives! They must have a good and robust education in all disciplines and, in parallel, develop their talents in other fields. If this is a too difficult task for you, Andrei Lemeshonok, then you should not be allowed to run a school where you manipulate and brainwash children to believe that they cannot do better; this fits only yours and the rest of the Usurpers’ interests in Belarus.
