Education, the spine to our future: Academic grade inflation is higher as economic growth goes deeper.
Only a few weeks on since the start of the academic year, pressure is already on children to get into top schools and elite universities.
This academic year, as millions of children and young adults return to school and university, parents’ biggest fears around the world are whether or not their offspring will gain the required qualifications.
IQ is not set in stone: On self-discipline, Keller Williams wrote in his book entitled: “The One Thing”:
“The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. ‘Success is actually a short race—a sprint fuelled by discipline just long enough for habit to kick in and take over.”
It is believe that there are scientifically based tips for parents to raise the educational aptitudes of children to reach outstanding grades.
Below are scientifically based tips for parents to boost the educational aptitudes of children to reach good grades.
- Feed their brain. The foods they eat are key. Childhood and teenage-hood are critical for brain development.
Evidence shows that, rather than ending at age 5, or 12, brain development actually continues into one’s twenties. According to researchers, the teenager brain is still under construction.
Organic eggs, yogurt, greens, carbohydrate, fish, nuts and seeds …according to experts, are a few foods that can help young people stay sharp and which affect how their brains develop well into the future.
- Extracurricular activities, self-discipline and consistency.
IQ is not set in stone, whatever a child’s background; it can be nurtured and grown through various stimuli such as: exercising, reading, sleep hygiene.
Academic grades have more to do with conscientiousness, hard work and consistency than with natural talent or acumen.
- Your duty as parent
On top of the costs of school tuition fees, foreign exchange trips, extra curriculum activities, and holidays, children have to be coached extensively.
As a parent, you have the ethical duty to support your children fulfil their academic potential and succeed in education and in life.
You should help them in their studies by providing a home environment of healthy dietary routine and extra curriculum activities.
The Bridge Magazine can only wish once more good luck to would be and current UK and international students who are currently starting their academic year.
