While school plays a major part in a child’s studying habits, it is also important for the family, especially the parents to ensure that they help their children with their studies. Scientific researches have proven that while an adult can concentrate on studying for minimum three hours, children can only pay proper attention for minimum one hour. As parents you do not want to have a fight and push your child to study while he or she is rebelling against studying. Therefore, let us look at some methods that will help you make your child study without fussing about it.
Have an organized study plan.
Studying includes the daily studies at school, assignments, extracurricular activities and then exams. A kid is more likely to get lost between all these and there is a high potential on missing out in one or two activities. Therefore, it becomes important to have a time table. A time table or a time plan helps a child to write down each activity separately and follow the plan accordingly. This helps the child to organize each work according to his or her convenience in a day.
Teach them to be in tact with the future expectations.
We are stepping to a future where everything is controlled by a enterprise firewall protection. Therefore, as parents you need to help your child develop their ability in the field of computers. Help them find study helps and access to educational sites through the internet. This will also interest your child because the internet has different study guides every day. The child will not get bored of studying because of the virtual graphics and the interesting ways they have presented it.
However, as a parent you might get concerned about the sites that your child visits. Parents should pay more attention to what their child is watching online. Anything that goes into a child’s head when they are young would have a major impact in their behaviour once they grow up. Therefore, it is important to be vigilant as to what they are studying on. You have two solutions for this issue. One is to have an internet access control solution. Thereby, limiting the access for many sites and blocking many sites. And two, to have a parental control system in which you will get notified if your child access a network which is restricted. The parents will get notified via an e-mail or a text message.
Be a friend than a teacher.
The school would do the role of teaching. Therefore, as parents you need to be a friend to your child. Never push them to study as it might backfire and they might never be willing to touch a book. Explain to them the importance of studies and how lucky they are to an education. These little factors will encourage your child to make study a habit without you having to nurse him or her.
