  3. Young people spend an hour and a half a day to study, but they spend four hours in front of a screen (console, TV or Internet), while increasing at older ages and are reduced by the earliest. These are data from a sociological research to learn the study habits of schoolchildren, conducted interviews with 1.000 children aged between 8 and 16 years and also their parents.

    Study loses interest when moving from primary to secondary education: seven of every 10 primary school children like to study, while only four out of 10 secondary have a positive attitude towards the study, says the report commissioned by the Fundación Antena 3. 60% of older children indicate that they don´t like to study, are 75% of those suspended and 45% of those who approve.

    One of every two high school students who suspended, have problems to concentrating when they must study , however when they study, listening to music 48%, 45% have people talking , 35% are connected to the Internet and 25% have television. The report, conducted by TNS-Demoscopia, says a third of young people don´t study in his room, but in the kitchen or the living room and the same proportion have trouble understanding the explanations of teachers, especially in mathematics and science.

    With regard to the techniques of study, more than half of students (55.6%) say they often learn things by memorize. The relationship between parents and children, the application of punishment is usually when they get bad grades (at 55%), while only 25% of parents expressed reward their children when they get good results. Regular communication between parents and children about the progress of studies is lower among those who discontinued (53%) than among those who approve (71.2%).

    Throughout the course, primary school children spend little more than an hour a day to study and only a half hour more of high school students, when exams are approaching, the time of study beyond the hour and a half and two hours in high school. In front of the screen, elementary students are almost 3.5 hours (1.5 to TV, 1 hour play console or computer and almost another hour on Internet), while teenagers use about 4.5 hours ( 1 hour and 49 minutes watching TV, 48 minutes on the console or computer and 1 hour and 44 minutes on internet).

  4. Marta V:

    From my point of view I think that much of the blame have the parents in this problem because when they are children, the parents have to motivate them to study, because only few children study on their own, and if they not acquired the study habit since childhood is difficult getting habit when you get older.

    At home, parents should turn off the TV and avoid making loud noises while your child have to do homework and when they are children, their parents should mark the homework time and then they can play when finished their homework, I also think they should have a place comfortable for the study .And should never have anything in your room to distract them as a computer, TV or console.

    I think if all parents have to do this, we could reduce school failure.

  5. In my opinion it is true that the children spend more time watching the tvor playing to video games instead of studying. In this point I agree with Marta because the parents must mark a few schedules, a few procedure, in order that their children study more and spend less time seeing the TV.

  6. I agree with Marta. The problem comes from parents a lot of times, because they don’t teach a very good study habits when they are child and they pretend that their children were a very good students in the future.
    In addition to the Marta’s solution, I think that is a good idea that parents use the gadgets or TV, internet, etc. to improve the education of their children, with educational programmes, interesting games, facilitating the search in Internet, etc.
    On the other hand, they can promote the library’s use, if they can’t stop the noise at home or if they aren’t going to be a good space from study.
    There are a lot of ways to improve the study habits and reduce the technology’s use from study.

  7. I agree with my classmates, because a child must be well educated and motivated in school and at home in order to acquire good study habits.

    Besides, I believe that parents and teachers should advice children about how to spend the time to have fun and also to study. Children should not spend much time watching TV and playing because they will get tired and they will not be able to study and to concentrate at school, so the school failure could arise.

    What´s more, I think it is very important that a child have a comfortable place where he can study, I mean, an unnoisy and lightly room.

    Finally, teachers must promote that children like studying and even to explain every subject to the students in a fun way.

  8. In my opinion, these bad habits must be corrected immediately to improve society. Parents should encourage a field of study and work at home for children to find their satisfaction in a job well done. In addition, teachers should teach through methods that accommodate new technologies to be more attractive to students. In short, television, computers and all kinds of new electronic devices are part of our daily lives so we must teach children to use them reasonably and without excess.

  9. I agree with Marta. In my opinion parents give their children all the posibilities to study (they can study with the computer etc...)but they don't realise that when they give them all the things they want, as a computer, tv, all kind of consoles etc, they are giving them distractions too. In general not all the children have the concentration enough to study on their own and it's for that why they fail, also they have a lot of interesting things to do ,things that are much more attractive for them. So, in summary parents must be more estrict and must think more if they are going to give them what they want even if they don't study or not.

  10. In my opinion parents should get more involved in their children studies, because at that ages if they doesn't have someone besides them telling to study they don´t study at all. I also think that children should not have any distractor things at their room (TV, computer...).

    Children have to study in their rooms, because in other spaces of the house, could be other people and that could be another distraction.

    I dissagree with the text in one part, i think that listening to music helps people to concentrate, at least if this music has only sound, no voice. Because when it has voice people sometimes try to sing it and that is another distraction.

  11. In my opinion parents should injure children to study since they are little because is more easy to them. I think that doing a timetable in home will help the children to study because he know that if he study he is going to play after it for example.
    Learning throug television or by the internet is good but allways with their parents in front, to control them a little bit.

  12. I agree totally with the response that Marta has given to this problem that every day is major, unfortunately. It is sad to see since the school failure increases due to the influence of these electronic devices, and to see how the parents do very slightly in the matter. The first solution that would give, as good has said Marta, it would be to motivate the boys in the study, and not in useless programs of television, where there is no educational purpose. As my companion, I think that if we put all a bit of our part, all that might work much better, and to prevent thus the children from spending their time of study in useless things.
