It has always been emphasized by teachers, principals and even parents at home that good study skills make good learning and good grades. As children grow into young adults, it's important that parents and teachers provide the skills and habits they will need for life. Establishing good study habits now, will set them up for success in the future! Here are some of the tips that we need to consider:

1. A convenient and consistent time and place is best. Have them use their desk to study, and they should study at a regular time each day. If no desk is available, establish a "study place" to use each time.

2. Studying should begin immediately when your child sits down. Don't let them fall into other distractions, like using Facebook, Twitter etc. They can do those things later, as a reward for themselves, when they get their studying done!

3. Let them write down what they want to get done. Helping them to plan what they want to accomplish is very important before study session starts.

4. Be very careful of when your child starts to daydream, and stop them right away. Help them concentrate for blocks of time, but be sure to allow them regular breaks to refresh their brain. Have them try studying for 45 minutes, then resting for 15 minutes.

5. Getting enough rest and sleep are very important for effective studying and remembering. Be sure your child has an established bedtime at a reasonable time each night. Avoid caffeine a few hours before bedtime so sleep is uninterrupted.

6. Eating a balanced diet gives your body and brain the fuel it needs. Children should eat three good meals a day and should not skip breakfast. Try to have them eat a balanced diet of good healthy foods and not too much junk.

7. Exercise will increase memory and study stamina, as well as making you feel generally more confident.

Other good study habits include partnered and group study sessions. Through these methods students can share ideas, and help each other expand upon the material. In addition, when one student teaches another student a piece of information, this indicates that he or she already has a firm understanding of that material, and has committed the information to memory.
