WhoHasTheRemote.com hopes that all children get the most from their educations and grow up to be happy, productive adults. Part of that process involves learning to deal with failure and emerging from setbacks all the wiser. Teachers tend to agree that failure is an inevitable part of learning, and that parents should accept that concept when they see their children off to school each day.
One complaint that has been on the rise amongst teachers involves parental over-protectiveness in the educational realm. For example, some parents intervene on matters when children have earned poor grades. Special emphasis must be placed on the word “earned” – these are not cases that involve dishonest downgrading or abuse on the part of teachers. In some of the most ironic and shocking cases, parents have done the cheating by ghostwriting homework papers for their children.
The purpose of an education is to learn about the world and master the tools that are needed to navigate through life. In order for children to learn, they need to develop comprehensive skills – which can only be achieved when children do their own reading, research and written assignments. As children learn how to study on their own, they gradually master the art of achievement – one of the building blocks towards adult independence. Learning how to deal with failure is a part of this journey, because it pushes kids to improve and persevere.
In regards to studies, children are best served by encouraging parents who foster educational home environments. Certain family games like Monopoly can be very educational for children. On television dish packages, there are many channels with programs that focus on history, animals, travel and space – topics of intellectual curiosity for people of all ages.
WhoHasTheRemote.com believes that responsibility starts at home. When parents encourage learning around the house, children are more inspired to conquer the challenges that lie ahead at the start of each school day.
