Facing problems related to your child’s school? Here is what you need to do.

School is a place for children to gain knowledge, bond with other kids, learn new things. However, there are times when children face problems and aren’t able to adapt to the school environment. Here are some of the common reasons and some tips on how as a parent you can deal with them:


  1. Misbehaviour to gain Attention:  At times kids throw tantrums, misbehave or simply disturb other kids during class. They do this because of certain fears & anxiety issues to gain the attention of the teacher. Sit in a quiet place and have a heart to heart with your child. Reassure him/her that he/she is loved & precious and will do well in school gradually. Speak to the teacher. Tell your child, that to gain respect, love and appreciation he/she must give it too. Deal with this calmly without assigning names like “troublemaker” to them as they may become so just to rebel.

  1. Poor Grades/Academic Performance:  Every kid has his/her own unique intelligence. While some children are creative, others are intellectual, some athletic and others technologically fast. If your child has been getting consistently low grades or weak performance reports, identify his weakness and work on them together as a team. Praise their strengths and explain how they can become an even better student if they work on problem subjects. In case you find a learning disability like dyslexia or stammering, get help from an Expert or a Communication Skills Trainer and resolve it. Be patient, it’s not the end of the world. Remember that some of the greatest leaders of the century have been poor to average performers at school.


  1. Social Anxiety/Bullying:  Some kids are late bloomers, some shy and some lack social skills and are unable to easily bond with others. As a result, they may find themselves isolated and in extreme cases ridiculed or bullied by other kids. This brings down the child’s morale & self-esteem and needs to be brought to the teacher’s attention. Encourage your kid and teach him ways in which he can make friends in his own sweet, gentle way and remind him/her that the world is safe. Tell your kids how lovable they are and would be loved by all and to just open up. Also teach your child to be brave enough to be assertive and tell the teacher immediately if he/she is being picked on.

  1. Not Liking School:  Some kids get fearful or experience sickness just before going to school. Some of the main reasons are fear of strict teachers, feeling burdened by too much homework, demanding time schedules and not liking the school environment. The way to deal with this is charting out your child’s day in a manner that he/she can easily adapt to and can have time to play & enjoy their favourite activities. Also speak to the teacher about how things can be worked out for effective communication. Learn ways to make your child’s School routine interesting http://bit.ly/218hvga

Making Child’s School Routine Interesting 

Intro: School is a major milestone in every child’s life where he learns, grows, plays and makes friends. You need to set a daily habit in children to make them get used to the routine and make the most of this beautiful phase of life. However, children can get bored and need constant encouragement to go to School.

Here are a few tips to make this routine wonderful for your little one:

children in classroom

  1. It’s a place to learn & have fun: School is a place to learn & discover more about the world we live in. ”Preschool literacy” helps if your child has been introduced to his/her lessons by you at home so he/she can be at ease & enjoy studies. Share your own interesting memories of School days so that your child realises that School times are the best times in life, and he/she looks forward to cherish it.




2. Time to Play: All schools have a play-time which is also the best time for all kids. In order to help your kid make the most of the play time, play some interesting and innovative games yourself at home and later ask them to share it with friends in School. This will not only improve your bonding with the child but is sure to make them enthusiastic and elevate their confidence & social skills in bonding with others in a group. Your kids will be excited to share their fun knowledge with friends.

Invite your child’s friends over one of the weekend, treat them with some yummy snacks and encourage your child to share his/her games with them. This will make the bonding between children stronger and make your kid more social. Having friends in the same batch makes the child appreciate school life and see it as a second home.



4. Tasty Tiffin: Pack tasty tiffin for your kid which includes their favourite treats in an innovative way with recipes that are nutritional & flavourful. This will add to their daily zest during recess as kids can be very moody & choosy about their meals. You can also pack extra snacks that your child can share with others in the class. Food always puts kids in a good mood!



5. Sweet Surprises: Once in a while pack a small gift for your child in his/her bag or a small note saying “I Love You. I’m proud of you”. This makes the child feel special and connected to you.



6. Sensible Rewards: Reward you kid for good behaviour in the form of praise, gifts like toys or treats, outings to his favourite places and more. This enhances your child’s self-esteem and keeps him/her motivated to grow. However, be thoughtful about rewards as they should not become the only motivating factor for a child to do something good or perform better.


after school fun7. After School & Weekend hours: Bond with your child after school, listen to his/her stories and share the day’s events. Let him/her watch favorite cartoons, laze, dance, doodle, be with friends and just be or do whatever brings him/her joy! Weekends are precious so make the most of them with your little one and tell him all this is because he/she has been such a great kid the whole week!!
