  2. 2.  Parental Expectations  Forced to study specific subjects .i.e. by parents or relatives.  Fear of Failure  Grades as seen as the most important part of life.  Isuues with Time Mangement
  3. 3. Some Parents are at their children’s back, daily pushing them to excel academically. Parental pressures to pursue academics success have both positive and negative effects on their children. This usually happens because educating a child is now considered as an investment for their better future.
  4. 4. Forced to study specific subjects .i.e. by parents or relatives 1) Parents want their children to work in a profession in which they have a good chance of succeeding economically. They feel that the social sciences and arts in general donot offer as much potential for financial success as do engineering, medicine, business and law. 2) And they are right to some extent. However, many young people do not place the same priority on getting a high salary as their parents do. They might be more interested in a lower paying career that matches their interests.
  5. 5. Students want to get that ‘A’ so desparetly that they sacrifice their creativity and choose the easy way out simply to get a better grade. Fear of Failure They come to prefer easier tasks not because they are lazy, but because they are rational. After all, if the point is to get an A, your odds are better if you avoid taking intellectual risks”

  13. 13.  Peer Pressure from neighbours and relatives – People around parents asking questions about the marks of children and comparring their kid’s performance.  Financial issues- Financial issues from their own and demands from institutions bring pressure to their minds.  Non-listening of children – Children, Teenagers not ready to listen advices from parents. This brings pressure to parents.  Over-expectation and Job fear of children's- Parents getting their own pressure by expecting more from the children. They wanted their children should be on the top of the academic ladder. Job fear and Employment risk also bring pressure into their minds.
  14. 14. Faculty Or Institutions • Result oriented expectations – Institutions expecting marks and 100% pass results from very subjects. Putting faculty under pressure for not bringing all students at same level, which is not possible. Comparing other faculties with one and playing the shame and blame games. • Students mindset- Students are not hearing advices of Faculties . Classrooms became a place for Testing Teachers. Students taking advantages of free – minded faculties and makee them cool by behavior but not giving results. Students never understand the purpose of teaching. • Over load of other works other than teaching - Teachers or Faculties are not only working in front of students. They have been given other works too. Institutions giving other responsibilities also affects their classsroom behavior. Strikes, Sudden leaves, Indifinite closes bring them pressure of completing the syllabus in given time. Family issues also affects them. • Job security - This is the extent to which lack of job security and job changes are a source of pressure, for example: ------> job insecurity ---- lack of job permanence, e.g. temporary/fixed term contracts --- Future job change --- fear of skill redundancy

Secondly, Not concentrating in class and sudden questions coming from faculties gives them pressure. Fear of tests and examinations and lack of interest in field.  Family issues and Friends issues – Problems in real life brings pressure. Family issues, Father’s job, Mother’s illness, Financial situation of the family are the major reasons.  Distractions – TV,games, mobile, sms and movies , outing are the major distractions.
