There was a boy named Aryan who was a student of class VIII. He was good at studies but had one bad habit of not doing his work on time. He always used to procrastinate the things and make himself busy on other unnecessary work. He was always scolded for doing untimely work but there was no improvement on him. All teachers and parents were frustrated because of him but they could not do anything to improve his habit. One day he did not do his assignment and came to school, that day was the last day of submission of the assignment. The teacher took him to the principle; there he was quizzed for his disobedience. He apologized for his mistake and promised that he will never repeat his mistake again. That time he was excused after giving him a warning.
The irony was that Aryan was not reformed even after he got the warning from the principle. Days passed by and his final exam came, he was prepared for his exam. On the day of his examination he reached his school late because he had a confidence that he can complete his paper before the time. Unfortunately, he was not allowed to take his exam for that particular subject. He gave his rest of the exam but he was detained because he didn’t appear for his first exam. Aryan felt the insult of sitting in the same class with his junior and then he took a resolution that he will be very particular with his timing and will never be late for his work in future.
Have you been a Dad or Mom? If yes, then you must have realized the significance of time management.
When a child has a fixed schedule, then they know what is expected out of them and how much time they are given to perform the particular task. This also helps them to teach their time and their behavior. When you have routines it not only benefits the children but the family as well, for there is less stress and everyone is prepared. Schedules and routines are important for children because they need to know what’s coming next. If the schedule is consistent, children learn the pattern. Once a pattern is set children can infer, for instance, that lunch comes after music time. This way, there aren’t too many unknowns.
