By nature most children are smart, however we find more and more students failing to reach their goals. Both teachers and parents have brought together a list of the major reasons that lead to student failure:
- One of the major causes in a student’s failure to achieve is family problems. Things do not always go smoothly at home, but it is really important to let children know they are loved, no matter what is taking place around them.
- When a student lacks motivation or desire to be successful, it can frequently be traced back to a lack of interest by the parent.
- Transferring to a different school places huge pressure on a student. This can lead to failure to attain their goal. No one enjoys having to try to carve a place for oneself in a new situation.
If a shift cannot be avoided it is terribly important the parent does everything possible to assist the student fit into the new school as fast as possible.
- Many children don’t want to be spotted asking questions. This can prove to be a lethal mistake in the classroom.
- Peer pressure can play a massive part in a student not desiring to achieve. Knowing who your child’s friends are is a most important part of parenting. Make an effort to meet your child’s friends.
- Student-tired teachers or poor teachers are a specific reason why some students fail to achieve. If your child is having teacher problem, get an appointments with the headmaster/teacher and see if the problem can be sorted out.
- Lack of being able to deal with failure, or the lack of encouragement to try, try again can be the cause of lack of success.
Failure is not the end of the world. Only through errors and failures do most of us learn the real lessons of life. Students will be successful if they are shown that failures are just another chance to succeed.
The greatest inventors failed thousands of times, before they finally succeeded.
- Above all, let your child understand they are not on their own. No matter what the problem is, let them be assured that you are readily available for them.
- Finally, it is not talent that will achieve in the end, either at school or in the world of grown ups. Praise effort every time. The bottom line is that students do not achieve on their own.
