As a good and responsible parent, you are already providing food, clothing, shelter, facilities for entertainment, holiday recreation, expenses and education etc., to your ward. All these make your ward happy and content. To make all this meaningful and for your ward's future constructively and permanently secured, you have to understand the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs and increase their self-confidence and self esteem. Like a farmer who prepares the field for the young plant, the parent must prepare a contributive atmosphere at home for the child's academic pursuit. Bonding with each member of your family is as important as bonding with your ward. Any ill-feelings within the family, even if it is not directed towards your ward, can cause serious negative reaction and in turn affect the academic performance. A child who is happy at home will undoubtedly be happy at school and therefore enjoys his/her learning and performs well. On the other hand, a child from an unfriendly and disturbed home is unsettled in the class room whose process of learning becomes a struggle and often a failure.
A parent's schedule has to provide a slot to cater to the ward's requirements. The requirement may vary from a pleasant pastime with 'MOM AND DAD' and to a more serious need of sharing with you - a fear, an unhappy situation, a doubt or a problem. Do not discourage your ward from opening up to you. Many adolescents who have crossed that difficult period without tension and fear of examination have excelled in life as their parents always "listened".
Be involved in your child's activities. Get to know how your ward spends his /her time and be familiar with all his /her activities. Update yourself regularly with his/her progress in the classroom, performance in the examination, peer group in the school and social activities in the neighbourhood. This is possible only if you maintain a friendly relationship with your ward who will repose his/her confidence and trust in you. A caring parent is the best friend a child can ever have, whereas, an uncaring parent is the worst enemy.
Incase your child is sick, please do not send him/her to the school until the ailment is completely cured.
Now, a new threat that we face is from the corona virus. Adequate care to be taken by you to follow the golden rules SMS (Sanitizing, Mask & Social distancing). Mask, it is a lifesaving device to be worn by everyone whenever we step out.
