Best NEW YEAR Resolution for School Students

New year resolutions for students
“It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness”
James M Barrie

This to me seems a simple Mantra of success in life, especially student life, the bedrock of once future.
If your aim is meaningful education, then a goal-oriented approach towards the expected result is the
key.
Each educational program comes with too much to be accomplished in too little a time. This requires
determination, planning and subsequent action. What better time than New Year there could be to
begin this process, below we look at certain essential ingredients of student new year resolutions.

The Best Parenting Approach to Your Child's Development

As the saying in English goes, “All work and no Play makes Jack a Dull boy”. It has been
forgotten that academic learning and sports education complement each other. They resemble the
two sides of the same coin. If sports education is carried out accompanied with the academic
curriculum, the overall personality of the student is increased to quite an extent. The qualities of
the leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance are learnt from sports.

Importance of Spending Quality time with Children

In this time-starved world driven by technology, life is much more complicated than it was in
previous generations. Technology has shrunk the world and the flip side of this is that people need to be
available at all times. The only excuse is the 6 hours of sleep that still acts as a savior. It does not matter
if it’s a national holiday, festival or weekends. People are finding it increasingly difficult to break off from
work and work-related communication. Bringing work home is no more a concern, as it’s on our necks
24/7. How much can we shake it off to bring that element of happiness and bonding in our family life
and how much importance do we give for family time and shaping our children’s future is what
determines our parenting model.

Beating Exam Stress

Anyone aspiring to achieve academic excellence and striving to give their best goes through exam stress. It is unavoidable and with all certain circumstances, using it constructively or otherwise is in our hands. First of all, the reasons for exam stress are to be analysed – peer pressure, high expectations from oneself or parents, lacking confidence or preparation are among the few.  It is important not to let exam stress get the better of us, but use it as a step ladder to optimise our performance. There are ways to reduce exam stress and to channelise the energy we spend in stressing ourselves out.

Why Ethics in School is Important

Values are rules from which we make our personal decisions about what is right and what is wrong, good or bad. Values help direct us to what is more important and past what are less important. This helps guide us when making decisions.

Ethics and ethical behavior are no less prevalent or important in education.

Building Character in Your Child Helps them to be Successful

Success in a child’s life is a distinction in sports, education or any field that the student may choose to be a career. Success for an adult is climbing up the professional ladder. In this fast-paced and competitive world, there is rarely time to preach about integrity and happiness. While the majority of us religiously follow the rules for family bonding time, take the frequent vacations, how much of character building does happen? We advise our children on etiquette and behavioural ethics, but how much do they absorb?

This is what happens when you stay focused

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”

Exam times are not the only reasons for children to stay focused. Keeping their attention and concentration on the lessons as they are being taught is more crucial than just during exam times. And if they are taught the art of practicing focus, it becomes second nature to them thereby eliminating the need to be on their backs their whole lives.

Technological advances have brought with them a whole load of distractions by means of social media, movies and books all at the click of a button. Children spend maximum time online; some surf and some study. So is this article an advice to parent to ban social media and all electronic gadgets from children’s lives? Certainly not. A happy child with a happy mind is the basis for focus and depriving them is only going to make them sulk and is going to take their minds away from studies than ever.

The best ways that help to recognising and nurturing talents

Each child is unique and so are their talents. Some have conventional ones which are easily identifiable like music, dance, drawing and painting, oration and alike. Yet, others have some offbeat ones like humor, mimicry, voice throwing and so on. Every talent needs identification first and then nurturing to shine though. Children themselves are not aware of their abilities and skills unless parents recognize and start honing them. Unless talents are spotted and nourished in their formative years, it may be too late to flourish or may never come out and remain suppressed for life which may stay hidden in the locked cages of the minds.

Soft skills that will make you an excellent student

“Life is a journey, not a destination”

In a world where everyone’s in a race either with themselves or in competition with others, how many amongst us ever stop to wonder about the destination. We keep running, passing on the baton to our kids. If we all could just pause for a moment and reflect on our journey, where we are headed to and whether the means justify the end, and taking it a little further – if the end was worth it all, we would find solutions to so many of life’s puzzles.

What are we teaching our children – both by words as well as from our actions? What are we after? While there is no doubt that monetary stability is one of the key factors to achieve success in life, is that all that matters? While each financial benchmark achieved is only a step to aim for the next, of what use is all this power, position and financial success without the heart and mind that stops to smell the flowers along the way; running blindly towards quenching an unquenchable thirst – the ever eluding elixir of life called HAPPINESS.

Role of love and pampering in parenting

Parenting is joyful; and confusing. What is right and what is wrong? Who decides the rules and codes and where is the Bible? We all are well aware of the fact that parenting is done on an emotional and personal level so there are no specifics. We only have a broad understanding of right and wrong and even that can come under the scanner anytime.

In retrospect of our growing up years, we realize that parenting styles are very different from generation to generation. With that realization in hand, here is an effort in decoding the parenting style of the current generation.
We belong to the peer group of plenty – plenty of money and materials, plenty of attention for our children and also plenty of love in comparison to our previous few generations; which by itself is certainly a wonderful thing to give our children. The question now is – are we really showing more love than our parents or grandparents did? More specifically, is it love that we are showing? Do we detect a lack of discipline and sensitivity among the younger ones? What kind of society are we shaping up for the future? An imbalance of too much sensitivity towards oneself and very little towards others are staring at us in the face.
