This chapter narrates the many experiences the boys went through to develop good study habits. It also discusses other things that affect school life like tutors, exams, grades, honors, television, computers, social networking, and many more.
IN A NUTSHELL:
Developing good study habits in our sons is not only for purpose of performing well in school. It is setting their habits for life. It is for this reason that we should take an active role in this aspect. Because come to think of it, all the good study habits they will develop now will likely be the foundation of how they will live their adult life.
LET US SHARE:
May I ask you to share your most effective (and also the least effective) study habits that you and your sons practice? Please post your comments and stories below.

@Aug 6, 2012 Guest - Yes it's very important to keep them interested or "ganado" in dong their school work. Sometimes this becomes very challenging and this is why it's important for parents to be involved in the early years of their schooling so that they understand their children's individual styles and be able to keep that innate interest in learning. Thanks for your comment.Aug 20, 2012 / 10:59 pm
i do not impose..i do not dictate..i let him study at his own phase. i respect his time also so that he's "ganado" when it's time to study (";)Aug 06, 2012 / 05:29 am

@mar 22, 2011 Guest - I'm glad to hear that your son spends more time with his siblings now. Aside from the TV, we also watch out for excessive computer use. :)Mar 22, 2011 / 11:57 pm
TV in our kids' bedroom is really a big no. When my son got his own TV after we moved to our new home, he became a bit anti social. He hardly played with his younger siblings. When his grades went lower, we decided to take out the TV. At least he's spending more time with his younger siblings now instead of just staying in his room watching TV.Mar 22, 2011 / 12:49 am
@Aug 6, 2012 - Hi thank you very much for sharing your teaching style. We should really try our best to make the activity fun so that our kids won't lose their innate love for learning.Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00 am
@Aug 6, 2012 Guest - Yes it's important to always try to keep them interested and "ganado" during study time, but sometimes this can become very challenging. That's why it's important to also be involved with their homework time especially during the early years so we can understand their individual styles. Thanks for your comment.Nov 30, 1999 / 12:00 am
