Unlike adults.... Teenagers are well aware of their need to balance work with play.
This is schedule my daughter's friend has shared with her.
She shares a schedule like this every day so that they can sync their schedules and find some time to get on a call or play an online game.
They haven't met for the past 8 months.
So when we say teenagers don't care...or are disorganised or lazy ..... We are very unfair to them.
They are none of these.
The problem is that many teenagers have no results to show for the hours that they study.
We need to help them make a plan for the time that they have scheduled for study.
In this case.... This teen has put aside 3 hours.
On a working day that is phenomenal!!
A little knowledge about the science of how to put information into the brain... And how to take it out when required.... Can ensure a fantastic score here.
If you are the parent of a teen.. Help your teen to study.
Just asking them to study 'more' is not going to work.
Show them how to study effectively.
Every time I do it for the teenagers I consult with.... I am amazed at the results.
