Behaviour of Modern Students

Are you parent of a child? Do you want your child should be on top in character and should bring a great name to him/herself. Read this article to know what is the behaviour of the latest generation and what are the tips to be followed

A strong reason for students become unruly is parental neglect. In olden ages, children lived in joint families in which many members of the family gave them time and attention, but now in nuclear families the mothers are rushing to full-time jobs and as a result they do not have the time to spend with their children.

In schools also, the classes are very large with 50-70 students. Teachers are not able to give individual attention to them. A neglected child feels insecure and brings out his unhappiness through violent actions.

Now students are often encouraged to commit crimes like smuggling, kidnapping and even murder for the lure of money, which can be seen in the newspapers as many friends kill each other for the money. Many of them are drug-addicts and they need money for buying costly brown sugar and cocaine. Smugglers and criminals in big cities teach them how to use weapons like pistols, rifles and knife.

An important reason for students becoming criminal minded is that they do not have opportunities for self-expression. Now in the modern world, where is the spare time for a child to play, learn a fine art or practice the hobby he likes?

Every student is over-burdened with learning lessons, preparation for a series of tests, homework etc. The child gets choked with emotions as he does not find any creative hobby or work. His heightened emotions are expressed through violent actions. Another reason for children becoming violent is that they are given unnecessary freedom by their parents and teachers. Some children also have easy access to weapons. They are not taught good behaviour and discipline at their homes or at schools.

Everybody wants to curb the violence among students. But it is a pity that very few steps are taken to solve these problems. I think these steps may improve the scenario if implemented:-

  • The first step towards rectification is to stop children from viewing too many crime and action movies.
  • Parents should guide a growing child in the selection of programmes to be watched on the TV.
  • They themselves should watch only educative, entertaining and useful programmes.
  • Parents should spend enough time with their young children.

  • Full-time jobs and children do not go together.

    Leaving the children with their elders/grandmother is also not enough, because the elders are too old to manage and look after the children in a proper manner. They either neglect the children or pamper them too much, in both cases spoiling them. Also, a home should never be made a place for fighting. The security which a child gets at home makes him emotionally strong.
    As for educational problems, it is high time the system was reoriented and repatterned. The bulk of syllabus has to be reduced and in the schools there should be enough scope for extra-curricular activities and hobbies. A student who has already become violent has to be tackled with sympathy and not punishments as these have a negative effect on the student and develops a hatred for the person.

    If we have to save humanity from terrorist, rapists, kidnappers, and murderers, then we have to teach discipline and decent behaviour to the students who are going to be the future citizens of the world. If we allow them to learn violence and crime, we will be crying over spilt milk in future. Yes, by then it will be too late! SO people reading this please try to take this small step and help educate the student's good manner and sympathy. I have went through this stage in my student life so I know, and I hope that these things and systems will be corrected in the near future!

    The author has penned down an important article that pertains to students' behavior and their vengeance attitude even on small issues and sometimes the fight between the students on petty reasons leads to more physical injuries and also causes death. Last week one such incident happened in AP over the petty reason that which religion or caste was better and why, and the students started to fight and that was very fatal. Parents think that their children are disciplined and their behavior was right at the school. But what happens outside the school compound and on the roads while returning home is the challenging phase for the parents to understand. Children are more sensitive and they cannot tolerate defaming anything and they take the issues to heart and they won't mind attacking each other on any matter that even the elders are stopping them to do so. The parents should take their children home by themselves to avoid such type of incidents and even in the morning hours it is better if the parents accompany the student and also have a word with the class teacher as to the behavior and then take corrective steps

    These days students are under tremendous pressure. They have to perform well. Otherwise. they will not get seats in the institutes for higher studies and also they will not have chances for a better career. In addition to this, they will get attracted to unwanted issues that are prevailing in society.

    Another big problem these days is the availability of smartphones in the houses for the students also. Added to this during the COVID the parents are forced to provide smartphones for attending classes online. That is giving them a chance to spend a lot of time on these phones. They get habituated to seeing these phones and forget about their studies. This is making them learn criminal acts and other easy ways to earn money.

    The attention of parents towards their children is getting reduced due to their run for earning more. In the house, nobody else will be there to take care of these children which makes them get addicted to unwanted habits and they are becoming slaves to these habits. The solution for these problems is in the hands of the teachers and parents. They should spend sufficient time and see that the kids will travel on the correct path. Otherwise. the youth will get spoiled which is not a good sign not for the individual family but also for the whole nation.

    Very nice article written by the author. I agree with the author's view. Children are feeling alone day by day because of working mothers and fathers. Nobody is there to take care of the child. So, oftentimes children are violent and irritating by nature. Parents should spend time with their children for the development of a healthy mind and body. It has been noticed that those children who grow in a joint family have more emotion and sharing nature. But, we are forgetting social life because of wanting for more money. As a result, children are being unsocial and addicted to a bad habit which needs to be taken care of on time. Otherwise, our future would be dark.

    The article has highlighted the behavioural changes being seen in the children of the current times. It is the result of sheer negligence of the parents due to some reason or the other. The parents mostly remain occupied with their office work having no time even for the normal talk with them. As a result, the kids lack natural contact with their parents finding it difficult to get their issues redressed relating to different areas. They cannot expect any constructive suggestions even from their teachers due to their less availability of time from their end. The end result is that they fall prey to the company of antisocial elements.

    The only remedy to save them from bad company is to provide parental guidance and even parents should spare some time for their own kids. They should come forward for quality guidance in every sphere in which kids are interested. Such interactions would go a long way in the restoration of the confidence-building of the children. They can later be sensible citizens with the right guidance of their parents.
