Parents do think that children would automatically go to school and develop interest in their academics.
When the children don’t even cross the age and stage of natural childhood they compel them to go to school.
Not only the studies but parents want their wards to develop peer group and sociability, pressurize their children to attend schools.
Below five years, children are to be reared up like prince/princess showing lot of love and care and alas at this stage, parents leave them either in day care homes or play schools.
Children who are thus deprived of the pleasure of being with parents and play on their laps or under their indirect supervision, develop a sense of insecurity or a quality of arrogance later on.
Children need coaching with love, care and patience. What to do, most of the parents do not know or have all the three.
They are more particular about results and not efforts before achieving the results – a pity indeed.
Parents, do you want your children to be more sociable, more studious in studies and more interested in schooling, then please coach them even before they attend schools.
Reading to children and showing pictures even before they understand words, and making them meddle with the books would create an urge in them to go for reading and attending schooling.
The author of this article did this when his daughter was to attend school. Yes, I used to take her to the bus stop where the children would be boarding bus with uniforms and I would show my daughter as to how children are happily going to schools to study.
I would get her books and sitting on my laps she would listen to me narrating a lot of stories from the book and looking at the alphabets would make her familiar with them.
Always studies should be a pleasure and not pressure to children. This is the way to make them have very successful schooling and academic life.
Parents, please allot time to spend more time with your children and do these for them.
