The first few tips are related to basic parenting because I believe that a problem can only be solved when you will get to its roots. Most parents start pressurizing their kids without even understanding them. You talk to their teachers about the grades and progress reports but do you talk to your child first?
You must understand your child as it can make a stronger bond between you and your child. When you make a friendly bonding with your children, then you can solve their problems and guide them in a better way.

- What happened with his grades?
- Which course does he find difficult?
- What are the issues he is facing in that particular course?
- Did he talk to his teacher about it?
Then after asking your child everything you can go to his teacher and discuss it.

It is very important to build up self-esteem in children. Self-esteem will make your children feel good about themselves. It will bring positivity in them. They will have good thoughts about themselves.
Self -esteem helps in boosting up their confidence, ultimately they will start working hard, and their grades will improve.
5) Every child deserves motivation
Every child craves for motivation from their parents as it encourages them to work harder. Your motivation can give them the strength to win in every situation of life. Whereas grades are only some small obstacle which they can easily cross.
6) Set a study room for them
If your child is feeling distracted while studying in a living room, you should not think twice about setting a study room for them. The study room should be a quiet place so that they can focus on their studies properly. The study room will also be a comfortable place as it will have a study table and all the things they will need so that they can study peacefully.
7) Help them with homework
Never neglect your children, especially when it comes to their studies. It happens a lot when your child is doing his homework and asks for help you delay or neglect it due to any work or household chores. You should always be sitting beside them during homework times.
You can also appoint a tutor as well if you have a busy schedule and cannot sit with your child regularly.
8) Studying should be fun
The courses which your child finds boring and less interesting. Do something good and innovative to develop your child’s interest in those courses.
The perfect example can be of mathematics which kids mostly find boring. If you ask your kid to count lines on paper, he will find it boring, but if you ask him to count candies, he will do it with full interest.
9) Have some patience
For the upbringing of a child, parents need to develop patience. If your child is trying, you should support and motivate him patiently.
10) Start setting goals
Develop a habit in your child of setting goals. The goals can be daily based or weekly. It will help your child in improving his studying pattern, and before the time, he will be prepared for exams. Your child will be anxiety-free during exam days when he will achieve his study goals earlier.
11)Take care of their diet
For improved growth and development, a good nutritious diet is very important for children. A good balanced nutritious diet can improve your child’s learning capabilities.
12) They need proper sleep
Make an early bedtime routine for your children so that they can sleep properly and wake up fresh every day. When kids get proper sleep, they become more energetic and active for learning and studying.
13)The habit of keeping things ready a night before
Most kids get anxiety, especially during exam days, when their things are not ready in the morning. Develop a habit of making their school bags a night before so, they don’t forget anything for the school.
14) Breakfast is must
Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day so give your children a healthy and nutritious breakfast before school. Make sure that your children finish the whole breakfast, so they remain active and energetic the whole day. During exams, it is very important to do proper breakfast so that your children and perform well.
15) Proper sleep a night before exams
During exams, everyone has a habit of sleeping late and studying until late at night. Sometimes the innocent little souls also follow the same pattern, which is completely wrong.
Research has proven that those kids who take a proper sleep a night before exam performs better during the exam. The main reason is that sleep reduces stress, anxiety and relaxes the mind. When your child’s mind performs well, he will end up getting better results.
16) Have a realistic approach
Every child in a classroom cannot score top position. Some will get high grades, and some will not. If your child is working hard, he is learning and improving his capabilities as a parent, and this is the thing which should matter the most. Grades are only numbers that don’t completely decide your child’s capabilities and future.
As a parent, it is your responsibility to help your children earn better grades but try not to stress them up. Your motive should be to encourage them in hard working to become a good human being, polishing their skills and boosting their self-confidence. If your child is good at all these things, there is no point in stressing up their minds.
