Schooling and Stress

Personality Development Challenges in School

By Tahir AliPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

A child spends a major part of the day in school, hence the importance of formal education cannot really be neglected in the context of personality development for children, especially when they still get very easily influenced by anything and everything around them. A school year can be challenging for everyone. You may develop problems with self-esteem, family, friends, and even yourself.

Most boys and girls in middle childhood develop a positive sense of self‐understanding, self‐definition, and self‐control, especially when their parents, teachers, and friends demonstrate regard for and emotionally support them, and when children themselves feel competent. When lacking in one social area, children in this age group typically find another area in which to excel, which contributes to an overall sense of self‐esteem and belonging in the social world

The kind of learning environment a school has can be greatly conducive to building a positive personality in every child. When children meet other children from diverse backgrounds, they develop their social intelligence in schools like at no other place. Besides learning social intelligence in schools, children also develop their communication skills subconsciously while indulging in constant contact with their classmates.

Stress is part of life. Everyone experiences stress, and some stress is good. It can get your child ready for action and give them the motivation to get things done. For example, feeling stressed about an upcoming test can motivate your child to study. Or knowing they have to get to the bus on time can help your child get ready in the morning. If you notice that your child is stressed, let them know that you’ve noticed and that you’re there to support them. Responding to your child with warmth and compassion can help your child be kinder to themselves.

How to coup psychological and stress challenges in School

Step 1.

Observe the regime. Sticking to a schedule will help you resolve difficulties gradually, and as a result, you will be able to better control them. Buy a schedule at a stationery store and hang it in your room. Write down everything you need to do to make sure you don't miss anything.

Step 2.

Get enough sleep. Students should sleep at least 7-8 hours a day to make it easier for them to cope with stressful situations. So they will be less irritable and tense.

Step 3.

Exercise regularly. Playing sports for at least 30 minutes a day reduces stress, pressure and increases self-confidence. Turn on the treadmill, run a few kilometers, practice with dumbbells.

Step 4.

Try to relax. Listen to relaxing music, take a long bath, watch a romantic movie or meditate. Relaxing at least an hour a day can help get rid of the stress accumulated inside.

Step 5.

Have fun. Take a step back and have fun with your friends. It can be helpful to study together. It will be fun and useful at the same time.

Step 6.

Stay calm. Don't rush yourself and then start panicking. This will only increase your stress. Just take your time and be calm. Breathe deeply! Breathing will physically and emotionally relax your body.

Step 7.

Use your free time. When you have free time, use it to relax and think about something other than homework.

As typical as it sounds, yoga is a great solution. It's a great physical activity and you relax. Meditation (yes, the one that a typical monk does) is actually very effective too. Do this before bed, no matter how tired you are. It will also help if you improve your sleep. If you learn to manage your stress, it will help you improve your quality of life and enjoy valuable moments in high or middle school.
