School days are some of the best days of our lives. We love everything about schools except rules. From playing our favourite sports to extracurricular activities, school is a joy ride, especially when we do everything with our friends. But what about our studies?
It is a general understanding that if we like a particular teacher, we end up liking that subject as well as the subjects that we’re good at. A good teacher makes a subject not only interesting but fun!
But what do we do about the subjects that we dislike or find difficult? Why is it that we like a particular subject and dislike another, for example, some students really like maths as it’s easy for them to follow the logic.
On the other hand, some students absolutely loathe it, as they struggle with the most basic of calculations. Similarly, some people prefer history over science and some prefer English over Biology.
Our interests guide us towards specific career choices, on the basis of the belief that it is well within our capabilities to excel in a specific area, or we are simply good in those subjects.
Let’s take two steps back. If I am a kid who finds Maths difficult but loves architecture and design and want to pursue a degree in it, what do I do? How do I study for the subjects that I’m not very good at?
Solution? Make A Subject Interesting For Your Child!
But, question is how to make A Subject Interesting For Your Child?
Counselling: After identifying the weaknesses of the child, it’s important to counsel the parents on the same, and encourage and appreciate the child for his/her strengths.
Instead of disliking and ignoring a particular subject, why not work on it through innovative ways? If your child experiences difficulty in using logic, give him/her puzzles to solve, teach them chess, Su-do-ku etc and other similar activities, which will not only keep your child entertained but will improve the targeted ability as well.
The most crucial aspect of growth is being aware of your strengths and weaknesses and thereby allocating time and efforts to the areas that need the most attention. In this fast-paced world, it is not enough to just be talented.
Talent and hard work go hand-in-hand. Continuous fine-tuning and further enhancement of skills is important for a successful career, and simultaneous work on our weakness is essential to growth.
