Parents’ role in the education of their children
The first institution of a child where he learns is his home. A child passes most of his time with his parents and learns from his parents and the environment provided to him by his parents in home. Parents play a vital role in the education of their child, whatever child’s age is, (either he read in college or in school). If parents pay attention to their children, they make more scholastic achievements than those who are ignored. If parents take care of following things, they can improve the education of their children.
Give more time to your children.
Spare time in your busy routine, 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 did they read in school or college today. Help them in their studies, if possible. Talk to them about the how can they improve. Make them aware of the importance of study in their life. By this way, children start taking interest in their studies and they do well in exam.
If you do not give them time you cannot expect that they well do well in their academics.
Provide them a supportive environment in home.
Home environment affects a student life a lot. Create a loving environment having good relationships among all family members which has a good impact on the mind of your children so that they can study well. If the environment of home stresses children, they will not be able to concentrate on their studies.
Create a supportive and educational environment in home. Don’t do such activities which can absorb the attention of your children while they study like turn off television when they study. Provide them a quiet place for study where they can study with more concentration and interest. Paste some charts or tables (having study material) on the walls of home.
Encourage your children.
Appreciate if they do well in exam and if they get less grades encourage them for hard work. By appreciating them for their achievements in exam, they start to struggle more to get more appreciation. Encouraging them if they fail or get less marks enables them to stand again and start with new determination.
Make link with the school or college teachers of your children.
Visit their school college once a week and ask the relevant teacher 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 ask the their teacher, your children will study whole heartedly
Discuss with your children about their problems.
Your children may have some problems which hinder their study. Ask your children if they have some problems and try to solve their problem. Be friendly while discussing with them about their problems so that they can discuss openly.
Keep watch on the activities of your children.
Have watch on the daily activities of your children and see 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.
Improve the 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.
Your behavior while advising them
You should have balance in your love and strictness to your children. Have love while advising your children for studies Have authoritative behavior while prohibiting them from some things. Never beat them but strictly prohibit them from wasting time or unnecessary activities or wrong manners etc so that can take it serious and follow it.
