Teen’s age is the most erratic and impulsive age where they are enveloped with stress, dilemma and frustration about studies. Imposing your decision on teens might compel them to form an intimidating impression about you.
At this juncture, it is imperative to handle the situation meticulously by adopting tools to help your child tackle the academic & non-academic stress effectively and guide them to fulfill their dreams & objectives.
Parents should refrain from exercising a daunting attitude on teens and rather get into a light & friendly conversation to solicit thoughts on how the stress can be managed. Remember no two students are the same.
Ask them about what they want to achieve in life and which domain their interest lies in? Try not to get on their nerves while talking about studies and give them enough time and space to make their own decisions.
When your teen shows interest in a certain subject, try to do an exhaustive research so as to enlighten your child about the scope and future prospects in terms of professional career. At times, as a consequence of perplexity, teens chart interesting career options but fail to choose the most perfect one. Here lies the supportive role of parents. Help your teens choose a perfect path by listing down his choices with pros and cons and asking him to peter out the choices to an extent.
At MyEdge, our constant endeavor is towards bridging the communication gap between parents and children. We use latest technological innovations to do that. Here are some ways of eradicating the communication barrier between you and your child:
Track Your Child’s Performance
Teenagers often dislike being questioned about their academic progress, even if they have an above average performance academically. Further, teens tend to spend a lot of their productive time on internet accessing social networking websites which prove to be counterproductive. Encourage your child to become part of Social Learning Websites such as MyEdge.in, which provides access to the best of teachers & peers from across the world in addition to thousands of free learning material such as notes, videos, links shared. There is also some entertainment quotient for our student members in terms of motivational quotes, articles, thoughts and videos in order to make them glued to our website.
The website provides a facility to track your child’s performance by being in constant touch with the faculty, receive circulars/notices, and obtain regular updates on your child’s activity.
