More tips to help your child in study

Most of your child’s learning and studying takes place outside of the classroom, so creating the right environment is a MUST. If you have any bad study habits, the wrong work space will magnify them.

Some tips to make sure you set up the right home study ambience.

1. Identify your child wen chang position based on any of the above 4 methods and install the study table. This is the most conducive atmosphere for him to study, even better if you can match up with your child’s bazi favourable element direction.

2. Eliminate Distractions

Find out what distract your child and keep it away. This could be anything from a iPhone to his game console.

3. Clean Up & Organize Your Space

Organize your area  but not necessary super tidy. Make sure everything he needs are within reach, so he don’t have to get up in the midst of studying for a pencil or highlighter.

4. Work Out, stay healthy

Your child also needs rest. A tired body does not work well in studies.

5. Try to work out a schedule with him for both work and play.

6. Unplug online distractions from social networking like facebook.

7. Ensure that your child adopt the right posture to sit and study at a young age. Posture is important, especially when spending long hours studying. You don’t need to find him an OSIM chair, but a comfortable one.

8. Schedule regular breaks in his time-table. Our brain needs regular breaks to work at full capacity. A simple time management method is have him study for 30 minutes, take a 2 minute break, and resume. Use a timer, if that helps.

9. Let your child personalise his or her own study room. It makes him or her feel responsible too. Place his or her bazi lucky element to improve her concentration if need be. It can be plants, water etc. Choose your child’s lucky colour to bring up the positive energies.

10. Open bookshelves are alright in a kid’s study room. No such thing as poison arrows.

11. Use pastel colors for the kid’s study room that is conducive to his bazi birth profile favourable elements.

12. Ensure that the kid’s room door is not facing the toilet door or his study desk.

13. Ensure there are windows in the study room and the brightness of the room is balance, not too dark nor too bright.

14. Please do not place creepy stuff inside the kid’s room like headless monsters, vampires, etc or even warriors that may influence his aggressive attitude. This is purely psychology than feng shui.

15. The kid’s study desk ideally should not be beside the room door or in line with the door.

16. The study table should not be too near to toilet. It pollutes the study area and discourages the wen chang 文昌 star vibes.

17. In the absence of birth reading, pastel green or pastel blue color is the most suitable for studies because 四绿为文昌之神,职司禄位 wood star ; 一白为官星之应,主宰文章 water star; however please ensure that “wood” or “water” are not his unfavourable elements.

18. Do not punish your child by letting him sit under an overhead beam, a right angle beam at the side of the wall is not an overhead beam. Even if the study table is under the overhead beam is alright so long is not on top of his head.
