Having been an Educator over the years, I would like to share some tips to enable your child meet with academic success as a student. Parents would do well to understand that they are their child’s first and foremost educators. It is they, who can set the tone, mold their child and direct him on the right path to academic success in later years. It would be critical for parents to inculcate the importance of good education in their children right from the early stages of child development. It is their responsibility to instill in them sound moral values like honesty, kindness, empathy and a sense of fair play. It is these distinct qualities that can set their child apart from the rest. A student who has the potential to excel in and outside the classroom, could very well be successful not only academically, but more importantly in the adult years of his life. He could well be the envy of many of his classmates, who oft look upon him as their mentor. Such a student would be generally well-liked and respected by his teachers, his classmates and all those who come in touch with him. Success is bound to come to a student whose parents take time to foster good work ethics in their children. It is they who can motivate their child to work diligently with focused attention in order to fulfill his academic goals. Having imbibed time management skills in their child from an early age, would enable their child to be responsible in submitting assignments and projects on time. A well rounded student is often found to be a highly motivated individual. He is known to work diligently with focused attention to fulfill his academic goals, He is consistently driven by a sense of purpose and dedication to hard work. It is this sense of commitment to academic success coupled with personal responsibility that helps him to continue climbing the ladder of success in the years to come. Kudos to parents who have taken time and interest to set their children on the right path to success.

This is really sound advice, and it would be good if a lot more people read it. I did pretty well with my own children, I'm proud of the way they've turned out.

There are many parents who need to read this but I don't suppose they will, more's the pity. Great article.

Thanks so very much for your appreciation. I agree. Parents who really need to read or practice this, will not. Their excuse is: short of time or perhaps, lack of interest.
