1.Foster a love of learning.
It’s not enough to know that school is important. You have to learn that learning does not stop with a grade or diploma —it’s a way of life. You can even learn a lot from everyday activities at home—reading, writing, listening to music or talking with your parents. All these activities are a kind of intellectual development.
2.Get yourself organized.
Make a work plan and put all the homework on a calendar . Without a plan, students can easily forget what they have to do. Older students especially need such a plan as they have so many physical, emotional and academic events taking place in their lives.
3.Eat with your parents as a family.
Dinner is a valuable opportunity for the family to spend time together. During dinner time, with all the back and forth among family members, children have the opportunity to express their ideas, to argue and to develop their verbal skills.
4.The process is more important.
Many times, all we see is the grade. In fact, the process of learning is much more important than the result, because result is always the thing of the past but the experience learned from the process can be used again in the future. When in need of help, ask others to give you the tools to find the answers yourselves. For example, instead of asking your parents to tell you where India is, ask them to show you how to use a map.
5.Keep your expectations high.
Don’t be afraid to aim high. You can reach your goals. Set practical goals and do your best to reach them. If you make one step forward, you’ll enjoy making more. In this way you are building a bright future for yourself.
