These are very familiar dialogues we parents hear our children use quite often!
Do you know that these are the first step to “procrastination”?
Procrastination is an unhealthy habit, hinders growth, achievements and overall personality. It is a deadly trap and habituates delay in completing priority tasks !
I also hear parents lament saying ”how many times to tell you? finish your homework!
Stop watching that crazy video and sit to study! And many such helpless screams and shouts!
Today’s children need hand holding in bringing in the right behavioural change to stop procrastination! Here is something you can do..

Self questioning helps you become aware that procrastination is a hindrance to achievement and its high time you start working on changing this behaviour.
Procrastination results in a negative effect on academics, grades and performance in any field. This in turn impacts their overall health. Procrastinators experience higher levels of frustration, guilt, stress and anxiety leading to serious issues like low self-esteem and depression.
Now is the time to transform! Ponder everyday! Take few minutes to think before saying I can”t !
