It is not at all correct to pressurize children for studies. Bring strict with them is another thing, but when you pressurize them to do what they don’t want to do they become even more stubborn.


When you impose your wishes and expectations upon them, they feel burdened, as if it’s your life not theirs. Don’t ask them to score 80 above in all the subjects. Tell them that if they are scoring 90 in Science, it’s okay to score 50 in English or Maths. Tell them they are free to study whatever they want.
Also, don’t make your children feel that co-curricular activities like dance, music, writing, etc., are futile.

In fact, support them if they show interest in such things. Their school bag is too small to carry the dreams they have for themselves. Let those dreams develop and grow with them, instead of imposing your dreams on them. All they need is the support of their parents and guardians. Let them take it easy and enjoy their childhood while they have it.

According to me, a little pressure is always needed when it comes to children’s studies. We don’t need to burden them with our demands and wishes of good marks and excellent performance, but as a parent you can also not leave them on their own for studies.


Children, when they are young, can’t think critically about their career and the benefits of timely studies, and that’s when they need the mentorship of their parents. Parents are the best guides any child can have and they are the ones who pressurize them the most on the grounds of studies.

Denying then their favorite toys for getting low marks, not allowing them long recreational hours, and scolding them often are some of the practices that almost every parent uses to get his or her child on the right track. This often harbors ill feelings in children.

So what needs to be done is to create a balance of strictness and love. As your child would grow up, she or he would start understanding the reasons for your strictness. And after all, that’s how children learn discipline, and self-discipline.
