How parents can educate their children?
A child spends most of his time with his parents and learns from the environment his parents provide him at home. If parents pay attention to their children, they can make more scholastic achievements than those who are ignored. Parents should take care of the following things in educating their children:
Give quality time to your children: Spare time from your busy schedule for your children. If you keep on ignoring your children, it will make them feel irresponsible and they will lose interest in study. Spend time with your children as much as possible and discuss with them about their studies daily. Ask them daily, what they read in school or college today. Help them in their studies, if possible. Talk to them about how they can improve. Make them aware of the importance of study in their life.
Be loving and friendly to your children: Home environment affects a student life a lot. Create a loving and friendly environment by establishing good relationships among all family members. This will definitely leave a good impact on the minds of your children and enable them to study well. If the environment of home stresses children, they will not be able to concentrate on their studies at all.
Boost up your children: Appreciate if they do well in exam and if they get less marks/grades, encourage them for hard work. By appreciating them for their achievements in exam, they start to struggle more to get more appreciation. Encourage them if they fail or get less marks as it enables them to stand again and start with new zeal and determination.
Attend Parent-Teacher Meetings: Attend PTMs regularly as and when you are asked. Visit their school/college once a month and ask the concerned teachers about the studies of your children. It will give you the idea about the study of your children. You come to know about the weakness of your children and then try to improve accordingly. If you contact their teachers regularly, your children will study whole heartedly.
Discuss with your children about their problems:Your children may have some problems which hinder their studies. Ask your children if they have some problems and try to solve them. Be friendly while discussing with them about their problems so that they can discuss openly.
Keep a close watch on the activities of your children:Have a close watch on the daily activities of your children and see if they may not be utilizing their energy and time in un-necessary activities. They may not be wasting time in playing game or watching movies for a lot of time. Never suspect on your children but have watch on their activities in a way so that they may not feel that you are suspecting on them.
Develop study habits of your children: Advise your children about how to develop study habits. Make your children sleep in time and get up early in the morning. Make them sit for study if they do not, so that they develop the study habit. Show them the tips for good study and preparation for exam. Stop them from useless activities.
Balance your behaviour while advising them: You should have balance in your love and strictness to your children. Show love and affection while advising your children for studies but be authoritative while prohibiting them from bad things. Never beat them but strictly ask them not to waste their time for the unnecessary and irrelevant activities he/she wishes to take up. I am sure they will follow your advice seriously and sincerely.
