WHEN THEY AREN’T DOING WELL
When a student didn’t acquire a study habit since an early age, his/her development becomes deficient, the same occurs in school, as the child doesn’t feel motivated either. The same exact thing will happen at home, and often, there will be tension between the child and the parents when it is time to study. The most important thing for these students is for them to find motivation, ensuring they don’t realize boring and repetitive activities, making sure they can relate these to topics they are interested in (such as animals, sports, etc), as well reach an agreement with the teacher. Students with low grades, tend to work only when it is time for the exam. They should follow a work plan on a daily basis, and see their efforts and achievements in the short term. This will help determine if this plan is giving good results or not, or if this work plan should be tailored with the help of a teacher.
