We are approaching exam season and parents look tenser than the wards following up with them every minute, watching their movements and ensuring that they are always with their books. To every student waiting to write their exams, parents are demon incarnates breathing on their neck with the words ‘Study, Marks, Grade’. As a parent, I can understand the stress and thought process of the parents but children also deserve better.
Parents can turn out to be Fantastico for their wards if they understand psychology a bit and also the art of coping with problems that surface in the process of learning.
Children reaching the secondary level have to contend with the fact that whatever they have learnt till then was without thinking about the subject. As the grade progresses, learning gets associated with thinking and the need to think to learn arises.
