What can parents do?
Remind them that cheating is bad: So what can the parents do to ensure that their children are honestly attempting the exams? First and foremost, it is important to tell the child that he should not cheat. As per a study published in the Journal of Economic Psychology, when children are reminded to be honest, they are more likely to follow that.
Tell them good grades are not most important: The blame cannot be put on the kids alone. There are times when we put excess pressure on kids for good grades, and somewhere we dilute the value of learning over scoring. So have honest conversations – help them understand that good grades are not everything.
Check your behavior: Ultimately, a lot of how our kids behave has to do with how we behave and how we try to discipline them. So it is always a good idea to look inwards.
To be fully honest, taking the right path does feel good.
We at Delhi Public Elementary School, the best CBSE School in Indore had always tried to cultivate the sense of honesty in the Students.
