§  Follow the road safety rules.

§  Look at both sides of the road before crossing.

§  Avoid talking to anyone. Safety is vital.

§  Never run or stop in the middle of the road.

§  Take adult help for carrying huge or odd shaped things, like boxes, bicycles, prams, trolley bags, etc.

§  Take your time and cross the road only when you are confident.

§  If you drop something on the road, do not be in a hurry to pick it. It is not more important than you are.

  • Don’t spend time thinking that you are alone.
  • Boredom can be conquered by engaging in simple activities, like reading a book, watching TV or playing video games.
  • Don’t open the main door for anyone. Ignore even the regular visitors like the laundry man.
  • Keep the noise level in the house low so in case someone is at the door, you can pretend as though you’re not at home.

ü  Make sure your clothes are pressed and appropriate for the occasion. Take advice.

ü  Shoes should be polished or wiped with a damp cloth.

ü  Don’t let your hair loose. They trouble a lot on a windy day and spoil the fun.

ü  A belt looks impressive.

ü  Take permission of your parent to carry a wallet. Little money helps a lot in case of an emergency.

ü  Avoid stuffing your pockets with things (toy car, play figure, tissue, coins or a ball). It looks awkward and gives an uncomfortable feeling.

ü  Carry a tissue or a napkin. It is one of the most important things.

ü  Matching all the accessories with your dress is not always important. Be carefree because you are loved for what you are.

ü  Confirm your appointment before leaving and inform your invitee about your arrival.

ü  Look at the mirror and smile. Appreciate yourself.

§  Only keep those things on the table which you will use; a geometry box or a calculator might create distraction if not needed.

§  Don’t think about all your homework at once – battle it one by one, you will be a winner.

§  The longer you sit at your table the more you loose interest in your work. So, don’t fidget with the stationery and turn the pages unnecessarily.

§  Remember hard work done today helps you tomorrow. When you prepare well for a unit test it will surely help you in the final assessments.

§  Your work is a reflection of your personality. Neat, complete and correct homework shows that you are responsible, particular, hardworking and a perfectionist.

§  Each person has a different work style. Discover the best time and place for doing your homework (dining table or the study table; afternoon, evening or before bedtime).  It will help you finish your work quickly.

§  Homework is to be done at home. Avoid doing it in the class or in the car/bus. Teachers don’t like to see jumping words and flying letters!

§  If you find the assigned task difficult, take some guidelines from an adult. An elder brother or sister is of great help.

§  Access the internet, books and newspapers if you need extra help.

§  Homework helps you excel in your studies – Do it with a smile!

§  Call an adult to attend the door.

§  It is better to look through the eye-hole even when you are expecting a guest.

§  If some family relatives have come, open the door, greet them and inform your parents about their arrival

§  If you are alone at home, look through the eye-hole without leaning on the door and making your presence felt. Do not whisper with your siblings – it’s a secret mission!

§  If you decide not to open the door for someone because you are alone, you should move away from the door without making any noises. Do not turn off any equipment like the radio or the television as it will make your presence felt.

§  Remember to make a note of the date, time and the description of the person to inform your parents about it.

§  If you open the door for regular visitors like the laundry-man or for home delivery, make sure you do not talk to them or give them any information. Pretend as though there are people in the house – put the TV on to have some noise in the house.

§  If you need help, make a call to your parents or close family members.

§  If you start feeling upset, distract yourself by watching your favourite movie or by playing some video/computer games.
