Helping Your Children with Revision

As examinations come closer, students start panicking due to the lack of studying. It is not possible to remember what they have learned in classes weeks ago. In such critical times, parents play a crucial role. A parent's correct guidance makes everything easier. So, how do you help your child with studying? Here are a few tips for you:

1. Be positive and supportive. The most important thing students need from their parents, is their support. Be positive and encourage your child to give their best, but make sure to specify that it is okay if the results are not likewise. The fear of the parent's reaction to their results is what makes most students panic.

2. Create a study timetable. Most students lack in organizing their study schedule which makes their revision inefficient. Draw out a timetable for them with 20-30 minutes dedicated to each subject, this will help them focus on each subject individually, and make it more efficient.

3. Give them a free and quiet place. Students need an undivided attention during their studies. Whatever happens outside the study room is in your hands. Make sure you don't make too much noise or let anyone disturb your children while they are studying. This will help them focus on their studies and thus, better results.

4. Make her they take short breaks. Study research indicates that an average mind can focus on something for about 30 minutes. Let your children take a five minutes break after every half an hour so they can refresh their minds. This helps in increasing their concentration.

5. Wake them up early in the morning. Most students prefer staying up late at night for studying. However, they don't realize that their brain is already tired from the day full of activities, and can barely focus on anything. Wake them up early in the morning when their brain is fresh and more active. This will help them in remembering things better and in focusing better.

6. Set daily study goals and reward them. Young minds are very competitive and love challenges. For example, you can tell them they can go out for a cinema if they complete certain chapters through the day. Trust me, this persuades them better than anything.

Following these tips will surely help your children deal with their study time and exams more efficiently, and ensure better results. Exams are challenges for both the students, and their parents. All the best!
