10 reasons why kids hate school

As we all know kids hate school. It is natural for a child to complain about this. Research indicates that about 12% of the students go to great lengths just to avoid going to school. Many kids do not like the idea of attending classes so much that they become depressed. Some kids might even fake illness just to skip classes. Below is the list of 10 reasons why your kid may hate school which has been listed by the Tuition Singapore Tutors of House Tutor Tuition Agency.

Getting up early - This is the worst thing ever for a child. It is even worse in winter when they don’t want to leave their all warm bed and hear your mom come to rip your blankets off the body.

Homework - Kids think that homework brings the hell of school at their homes. Parents prioritize their kids in doing their homework’s first. But they get so much homework that they do not have time to do what they want.

Bullies - Kids hate going to schools simply because they could not take the abuse of the school bullies. Nowadays, due to advancement in technology bullies has taken even a more serious form of cyberbullying. 

Family issues - 
When a kid sees verbal and physical behaviours in their families it can trigger dislike towards school. When a child sees their parents fighting frequently he/she will instinctively feel the need to stay home in order to support his/her mother.

Teachers - 
Some teacher’s or tutors attitude towards kids can be rude, abusive and threatening. The methods used by teachers while teaching can sometimes make a negative impact due to which some kids detest school.

Separation anxiety - 
A child is used to getting a lot of love and affection at home. Some kids tend to hate school due to the anxiety generated by having to leave the safety and love of his quarters.

Boring - 
Kids look for a change. Almost every kid is bored of the routine that they undergo daily making them hate school. Some kids hate school due to the teaching style of some teachers as they are not able to make them concentrate while teaching them.
Peer pressure - It is one of the most top factors that determine a good student to change his/her attitude towards school. Every child no matter whether in the first grade or high school tends to take opinions of their friends and colleagues for granted.
Exam - The most thing kid’s hate in their school is the exam. Kids think it is impossible for them to identify the answer to each question. Kids perspective towards exam is that there are good, average and below average students, so the question in the exam should be set accordingly.

Health Problems - Every child does not have the same energy as their colleagues. Some might even have poor vision that impedes hem/her from seeing the notes on the blackboard or learning disabilities due to which your child might want to skip classes.

Depression among Students

        Student life is full of fun and challenges but it can also be very stressful and challenging. As a student you might be learning to live independently, leaving home for the first time, meeting new people, compromising your needs which can be stressful resulting in sadness. While we all feel sad, low from time to time, some students may experience these feelings intensely, for a long period of time without any reason. Then you might have depression. Sadness is only a small part of depression. Some students may not feel sad but are more irritable and lose interest in the thing that they usually liked to do. Depression can impact your daily life and normal function. Depression is more than just feeling sad and low mood; it’s a serious condition that can affect you physically and mentally. It is not a character flaw and you cannot will it away.

        Becoming a student involves psychological and practical challenges no matter what your age or background is. Most common student issues and problems include study issue, relationships, family pressure, money, lack of sleep, poor eating habits, culture etc. which can lead to depression among students. The stress that comes with the academic world, which includes financial worries, getting a good job after college and failed relationships are enough for some students to be depressed and leave college or worse. Many students are unprepared for university life. Especially for the international students having to suddenly negotiate with the world of many of the familiar cues, symbols, customs, values and languages. The teaching style may vary for international students due to which they have to find a home tutor at tuition agency like House tutor. This can be exciting but also can be stressful and anxiety-provoking leading to depression. The main stress in students occurs at the beginning or at the end of academic years. The depressed students are at high risk of developing habits such as substance abuse to deal with the emotional pain and stress.

The best treatment for college students with depression is to talk with someone comfortable, someone you trust or can share your feeling to or talk to therapists or tutors. Depressed students can mostly be benefited from eating a healthy diet, exercise and getting enough rest than others.

How to be a smart student in school

Competition is so strong these days. We need to be super smart to be ahead of everyone. Some kids are super smart and they are successful in their life. One of our Tutor Singapore from House Tutor, explains few ways on how to become a smart student in school.

Make a good circle of friends:
The first thing to do is make a good and positive circle of friends who have similar goals like you. A good company will help you grow and be motivated. A negative circle of friends will always bring you down. So choose friends wisely.

Study more:
The more you study, the more you learn and the more you grow. Smart students read different types of book that covers the wider area. Not just only read a textbook but read more books related to different fields. Likewise, try to read the news daily by this you will be aware of what is happening in the world currently. But remember; do not spend much of your time in studying but study covering many fields.

In general, kids who are good at public speaking and who have strong communication skills are regarded as smart kids. Students should practice communication skills with all ages of people from child to old people.

Pay attention in the class:
Paying attention in the classroom can be fruitful for students. Trying to learn most of the things teacher is teaching, asking many questions when confused are some tips for getting smart in the classroom.

Asking help when needed:
We are human beings and yes, sometimes we need help from friends, peers and home tutors. Smart students never hesitate or feel shy asking help from their friends and peers.

Exercise and eat healthy:
Doing regular physical exercise and eating well-balanced diet will help you to be physically, mentally as well as socially fit and healthy. A healthy mind exists in a healthy body. Students should do physical exercise 4-5 times in a week.

Time management:
Time is most valuable and all tasks must be done within specific time. If you are a good at time management then you are a smart guy. Students should finish their homework on time, attend school on time, be punctual, start to study early, give time for leisure, and prepare notes on time. Similarly, students should manage specific time for sports, games and recreation.
