Pressure put on children in order to do well in their studies

  1. 1. Pressure put on Children in Order to do well in their Studies Nowadays, we always hear about children being under pressure like it’s a common thing for the whole society. Their time is filled with the daily grind of activities and things in order for them to excel in their studies. We’re facing this problem mainly because the pressure from the parents and also teachers, the educational system as well as the child’s own disability to divide their time properly. Firstly, pressure from the parents and teachers. It’s a lie if you say parents don’t want their children to succeed. All parents would want their children to succeed and make them proud but unfortunately, they put on high expectations and push their children to achieve certain goals. The children would end up in a depression because the parents already planted in their mind if they don’t achieve the goals, they’re an embarrassment and also disappointment to the parents and they will also feel as if they have no time for themselves as the activities that the parents signed up for them consume all of their time in order to excel academic wise. A similar case with teachers – in a way they feel obliged to make sure that you excel because they’re the one who teaches you. If the students fail, they would feel as if they also failed to be a teacher and the parents would end up blaming them for not teaching their children properly. Parents and teachers should be more understanding towards what their children and students are going through.
  2. 2. Education system also plays a huge role that causes this problem. Education system in most countries are too exam oriented that the students strive to get A’s rather than gaining the knowledge itself. Sure, they could memorize everything and get A pluses for all subject but is that all? What about the experience? The hands-on? The students will not be given enough exposure and in the end, they’ll only succeed in school based on exams and grades because they don’t have enough experience and exposure. They will be afraid to think out of the box, to be creative and to think of other solutions and most of all they’re afraid to make mistakes yet we all know that mistake is the best teacher. In the long run, what’s the point of getting an A if the journey was a monotonous path of remembering formulas and memorizing facts? Apart from parents, teachers and education system, the children themselves are also the main reason to this problem. Some children have so much going on in their timetable till they couldn’t divide and organize their time properly. They over estimate their own capability. This causes a lot of pressure because of the lack of time organization. It is good to set goals in your life but we should know our own limits and don’t push ourselves up to the pressure point as it is very unhealthy physically and mentally.
  3. 3. In conclusion, to avoid this problem, the parents and teachers should be more understanding. The goals should be reasonable with the children’s capability. The time management also is important to avoid pressure and depression. References: http://ielts.studyhorror.com/writings/IELTS-Writing-Task-2-Study-Pressure-For-Young- People/12/sample2
