Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

At the age of 5 or 6 years old chil­dren send off to school. It is a mixed emo­tions when some of the chil­dren get ex­cited to see many play­mates and learned dif­fer­ent en­er­getic and so­cial skills some are cry­ing and want to go home early with their par­ents.

But we should re­mem­ber that school is the most im­por­tant in­sti­tu­tion in our life. It is our sec­ond home. A place where we can gain knowl­edge, val­ues, skills, friends, a brighter fu­ture and the abil­ity for us to be­come a bet­ter per­son.

Al­though school plays a cru­cial role in child’s devel­op­ment. Some chil­dren or stu­dents are still lack of in­ter­est in learn­ing and so what they al­ways do is to cut or skip their classes. Teach­ers find this very alarm­ing. A lot of pos­si­ble de­struc­tions keep­ing them from study­ing. The use of in­ter­net par­tic­u­larly the dif­fer­ent so­cial net­work­ing sites found in the “net” drag them away from books and mak­ing them ad­dicted to these sites. They are also hooked on on­line games and dif­fer­ent ap­pli­ca­tions that ex­cite them and at­tract their at­ten­tion to keep on do­ing such.

Lack of guid­ance and at­ten­tion is an­other fac­tor to con­sider. This may root the lack of en­cour­age­ment and mo­ti­va­tion from ei­ther par­ents or other teach­ers. En­cour­age­ment and sup­port for learn­ing ac­tiv­i­ties at home com­bined with parental in­volve­ment in school­ing cre­ates learn­ing ef­fec­tively.

Par­ents should get in­volved in child’s ed­u­ca­tion it could help them to get bet­ter grades and re­duce be­hav­iour prob­lems at the same time. Keep their dis­ci­pline and con­fi­dence they have in their selves.

It is not hard to par­tic­i­pate and guide chil­dren in school. Time man­age­ment at home and par­ents can eas­ily do for them to mon­i­tor their child in mould­ing them to be­come a bet­ter per­son.
