Importance of PLANNING
Talk to your kid, plan. It’s important to know your kid’s syllabus before the term and check out if he is completing his work and notes. Now when you know the schedule of his school tests and exams, always mark them in the family calendar.
Remember to plan your travel, outings, or celebration according to that so your kid doesn’t suffer from his studies. As of now mostly all schools have their portals and they keep posting yearly planners so it will be easy to track, if not you can always check with the school at least for the monthly planner.
Every subject is important and needs proper preparation so it’s better to break down your kid’s syllabus according to the exam and assign days for each subject.
This is important as in this manner kids will know to be punctual and follow the schedule. Divide every subject in such a manner kids don’t get bored studying them.
I am sure you must follow up on your kid’s notes from starting of the term. Now it’s also important that along with notes, the textbook you should check their assignments and worksheets …all this needs to be completed to avoid the last-minute hassle of completion.
It happens with every child they have some favorite subjects and some topics just seem like a gigantic monster. It’s your duty and your valuable guidance that can help them understand these topics.
Talk to your child, ask which topic he wants your guidance and you prepare them well and make them understand. I usually keep Saturday for clearing all doubts about my daughter.
It’s a really important habit which I really believe in that one should always have a dedicated place to study as it helps them to concentrate well but we should decide that place free from distraction.
It’s great that your child is getting responsible and studying hard to score well in the exam, but important is taking a regular break. Breaks will make them enjoy things they love to do and fresh up their mind.
NO to Digital Gadgets
It’s good to give them a break but make them understand that it’s important to take a lucky break without TV, YouTube, iPad, Mobile.
Tell them to go outside for a walk, play outdoor games, or even indoor games which they enjoy. This will surely go to refresh their mind!!
Keep calm, in many situations as it will surely go to affect their studies and health. Talk to them if they are stressed, talking to them, communicating is the best way to make them stress-free rather than losing your temper and patience.
