It is quite a common feeling that the heart is always where the home is. With a person’s life, being so completely intertwined with the home, it is quite natural that he would feel an innate connection with the smallest of things that may happen back home.
For an adult, it is possible to a great extent to keep away, the intricacies and disruptions back home while one is busy with his work. For a child it becomes extremely difficult, to keep these thoughts aside. Hence, the child is most of the times cannot differentiate between how to keep things that affect at home aside with daily school activities.
Why a good homely environment is necessary for a child:
A child is not quite used to differentiating between private life and public domain. They tend to behave in the way they are behaved with at home. This can be quite daunting since, it takes a huge toll on their educational success.
Research states that students, who come from happy and secure homes, tend to get an extra mileage. This is simply because, they have a safe fall back option and they know that they will not be let down.
On a personal note, I have observed that students who come from secure homes with good bonding between parents and children tend to perform better and also maintain a jolly atmosphere at school. Thus, it is very essential that a person’s home should be well organized to make sure; children get a new added impetus for making it big in their educational career.
How to keep your home organized:
- Clean and well organized homes
To have a clean and well organized home, which runs in orderly manner is very essential to influence a child. If a child knows that back home, he has absolutely nothing to worry about, he naturally will be able to concentrate on other things, especially studies in his school.
Also, a child when he knows that he or she can almost find everything organised in his home, it makes him more organised in his school activities. This generally increases his chances of educational success in school and in the longer run.
- Beginning of good morals at home:
It is a known proverb that the whole concept of being charitable back at home. When a child is taught that he or she needs to lend out his old belongings to the needy, then in that case, he will know the difference between the right and wrong.
Also, with excess things being given out, only useful things will remain and hence this naturally makes the child organised affecting his studies in the long run. He knows which topic to study and which to leave out, naturally granting him a success in the long run.
- Conducive atmosphere at home:
This is very important since, students who have a healthy atmosphere at home can concentrate more on their studies at school and at home as well. This definitely clears the path of his educational success.
Once he is confident of the calm atmosphere at his home, naturally he will feel better, and will be able to channelize his complete energy towards his studies. There should understand between children and parents, a loving and caring atmosphere back at home. This builds a child’s self- confidence to a great extent.
- Sharing of responsibilities:
A child should always be given a caring atmosphere at home. This is needed for his in built confidence, which is extended to help the child in educational success. When a child is confident, only then he can state his viewpoints clearly, which will help them in making a place in his educational field.
Most importantly, this sharing of responsibilities makes him to treat every individual equally with respect and courtesy. Proper education does not only imply being literate. It includes all these aspects of one’s nature, thus makes a child gain heights of success in his educational domain.
- Home tutoring:
An educational success of a child does not only depend on the knowledge that he gets from school. It is also important that he gets to nurture that knowledge at home. Hence, home tutoring is very important. In this way, students get to keep a track of their school work and hence, they can improve in their studies.
An overall education can be achieved by a complete all round growth process of a student.
- Never scold a child by abusing:
Verbal and physical abuse is the worst forms of scolding a child and it hugely affects a child’s all round growth, especially education.
It has been personally noted that students who have faced such kinds of abuse, there grades suffer to a great extent. They get discouraged and hence their whole wish to continue with their education and further studies take a toll.
Thus, whenever a child is scolded, it should be more in tune with explanation of the consequences of his action. This will help in his further development rather than deterioration.
- Allowing them time out for their hobbies:
Gone are the days, when education implied merely literacy. In present times, it implies a complete overall development which includes moral education, extra-curricular activities and finally studies.
In that case, it is very essential that children be allowed time out for their hobbies, so that they can get their minds refreshed and concentrate further on their studies, paving way for educational success.
- Open line of communication:
The children should have a chance to get into a direct interaction with parents regarding any major problem they might be facing. This may include any personal problem, or even problems at school.
Often it happens that students are not given enough space back home to interact. This affects negatively on their minds and their education gets hampered. Since they constantly keep thinking about one thing, naturally their concentration shifts and their motives falter. This connection is extremely necessary for better prospects.
On a personal note, I would like to say that a child from the very early stages of his life should be made aware of his surroundings, his roots and culture. This makes him or her more aware of what goes around and helps them develop into better individuals.
Education is another name for a complete development. Only if a person can genuinely follow these regulations, can they make their educational success path in a correct manner and make this society better.
