guidlines for teenages learningeducation Corner
He is now a teen so his interests will change. Yes he will want to be independent now so do respect that. Make a weekly ritual of taking him out on walks or car drives. Build an open communication with him. Listen to him. Understand his strengths and weaknesss and work on them. Help him to set goals and break them into smaller achievable ones. Often parental anxiety may turn the child off from studies because children fear they can't face the pressure or meet the standard. Hence understanding he irritability will help. Brainstorm with himfor solutions. Be patient and supportive. Routines help children and they need routines. Set up a schedule with his inputs and ideas. Allow him to play or relax after he returns for 1 hour. Guide him on a method of studying. Set a time period to study for 1-1.15 hours. In this period allot 20 min studying, 5 min break slots. When he sticks to the schedule appreciate his efforts. Appreciate as much as you can. But do not nag if you find him not doing it too. At this age teens like to rebel for no reason. Use humour to tackle difficult situations. Ask him for solutions - if he does not well in studies what would be the consequences. You will be amazed at his inputs. Slowly all this routine will help. I hope these give you some ideas.
