“Hard work is the key to success.” Though it sounds like an old proverb reiterated from ancient times around a million times, it has its relevance in the present time as well, and that too of the same magnitude as in the old ages. Hard work is a journey that cannot be achieved within seconds. It entails time and patience. Short tricks might prove beneficial for the temporary gains but fail to bring success in the long term. The ideal time to impart these values to the child begins in preschool.
Junior DPS, one of the leading brands of Play Education in India, has been working in the same direction since its establishment
How should parents contribute in Preschool?
Teaching starts from our homes themselves. The home environment significantly affects personality development and decides how healthy and virtuous your child is. Someone has rightly quoted, ‘Mother is the first teacher of a child.’ Parents considerably affect a child’s development as they are the role model for their newborn baby. They observe their parents and desire to be like them in every aspect of their lives.
Following are some of the directions parents should follow for developing a sense of respect in their child towards hard work.
The early years are very crucial for the child’s development. If, from the beginning only, the student gets into the habit of receiving everything readily that they wish for without putting any effort into achieving the same, then they will never be able to develop the respect for hard work. Parents should ensure not to spoon-feed their children. Let them write their fate!
Emphasize more on learning rather than marks
In India, there’s a stereotype that still exists. Parents, teachers, and society all assess the child’s caliber by the marks they score, not by their intelligence level. It is the peak time to break this taboo by relieving the pressure on your child and inculcating the practice of acquiring knowledge in a real sense rather than just theoretically studying to achieve good marks.
Set goals for your child
If you set goals for your child from the nascent age itself, slowly and steadily, a quality of hard work will develop in your child.
Teach them about hard work
It’s a human tendency that everyone wants quick results and easy success without putting in the required effort and hard work. Children learn from their elders. When an older person can do that, then they are still a child, innocent and unknown to the world matrix. They will be reluctant and lazy to complete the task and find creative ways to fool their teachers and parents. Here comes the role of parents who can teach their children the values and benefits of hard work.
Teach them to respect everyone
Make your children respect everyone no matter which socio-economic background of the society they come from.
If your child starts respecting everyone, he will also understand the efforts put into the work performed by others, and in turn, they will also ascertain the actual value of hard work.
