Recently, the Education Bureau of Zhao'an County, Fujian held a special donation ceremony.
Zhang Chen Xinran, who was admitted to Tsinghua University in the 2022 college entrance examination, donated the 105,000 yuan scholarship he received after being admitted to Tsinghua University to help poor students in need.
(The Paper on August 10)
Donating scholarships, giving back to his hometown and helping more students, Zhang is worthy of praise.
Not long ago, some netizens said that the scholarship they received after the college entrance examination was used by their father to pay for college tuition and living expenses. This behavior was "disgusting" and caused heated discussions on the Internet.
How should the scholarship be used?
This is a question on the "View of Wealth" exam that is placed in front of prospective college students.
For many prospective college students, food, drink and housing are all at home before going to college, which is basically arranged by their parents, so they don't have to worry too much about money.
After college, they are far away from their families and need to learn to live independently and manage their own income and expenses.
There is a wealth issue involved here.
It is not a natural process for prospective college students to form a correct view of wealth, but requires correct training and guidance.
Some students manage their money independently for the first time after leaving home, and are tempted by the world of flowers, spending ahead of time, comparing consumption, and even falling into the trap of "campus loan". Establish a mature outlook on wealth and money.
The healthy growth of students is not only about good grades, but learning how to make money and spend money is also an important part of a healthy personality.
The scholarship obtained after entering the university is the first relatively large wealth that many prospective college students earn.
How to use the scholarship as a "wealth concept" test question, before they enter the campus, guide them to correctly view money, cultivate a correct wealth concept, and buckle the first button on how to use money.
Guiding prospective college students to form a correct view of wealth requires communication between parents and children, and dissenting opinions should not be acted unilaterally by the authority of the parents.
Prospective college students are usually around the age of 18. They also begin to have their own ideas. Parents cannot always treat their children as "little children" and decide how to spend money on their behalf in the name of their good.
For example, it is wrong to say that it is disgusting that his father pays tuition fees with a scholarship, but from the self-report of the client, he originally had the idea of using the money, but his father decided the money without communicating and negotiating with him. How to use.
In this case, if parents and children can communicate more and explain the whole story clearly, there may be less misunderstanding and estrangement.
Donating scholarships is laudable, but it is also not necessary to be morally kidnapped. It is believed that prospective college students should give something back when they earn scholarships.
In addition to continuing to support tuition and living expenses after entering the university, scholarships can also be used in different ways, such as investing in financial management, cultivating "financial quotient", or purchasing learning tools such as laptops, or rewarding yourself for graduation trips. These are all desirable ways to spend money.
In short, when prospective college students face the first big fortune they have earned in their lives, it is inevitable that they will have some ideas.
As a parent, you should fully understand and respect your children's ideas and opinions, guide them to understand money correctly, cultivate their healthy outlook on wealth and money, and jointly answer the question of "Wealth View".
