I blame you, Mom.


I blame you, if you can’t tell me of the reasons.

I blame you, if you force me to memorize.

I blame you, if I score low.

Spellings are a torture for native & non-native speakers.

Here in India, teachers want us to memorize spellings & pronunciation. However, teachers themselves don’t know of an easy way out.

On the top of it, they ask us to break words into smaller chunks & read. If we do that it hampers our pronunciation.

Mom also has this old technique of breaking words into smaller checks & reading. Phonics also doesn’t work.

We don’t struggle with individual letter sounds to that extent. Our challenge is memorizing spellings & pronunciation.

Our challenge is how to identify the right pronunciation of words, how to develop automaticity in reading & memorizing spellings.

There is no interest in reading. I hate books because I hate reading.

So, I pretend that I am studying but I don’t.

I don’t because I don’t want to.

I don’t because it’s a torture and nobody understands.

They also pretend! Why do they refer to dictionary every time?

Teachers look up for the right pronunciation in dictionary and ask us to memorize. Why can’t they memorize themselves? And why do they have to refer to dictionary?

I also know that if I don’t read, I won’t learn.

It's their fault as well if they can't help.

It's their fault if they ask me to waste time & memorize spellings & pronunciation.

It's their fault if I don't enjoy reading.

It's their fault if I don't get good scores.

I blame you, if you can’t tell me of the reasons.

I blame you, if you force me to memorize.

I blame you, if I score low.
