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.
