Duties of a Good Student

Updated on October 5, 2015

Just imagine a human being without a backbone. Will you expect anything good from that particular human being? From a person who cannot just bear his own weight? The answer is obviously no! Same is the case for a society too. But the difference is that in case of a society, the back bone is its good students. A society’s progress largely depends on the student’s performance in different fields of education. Good students have differences with the normal ones in the aspect that they always keep in mind that they have to build themselves as positive characters for serving the society. A good student has many rights as well as duties towards the society. Here we will discuss about some the duties of a good student.

Duty Towards Parents

First and foremost duty is towards parents. Parents brought up a child from his childhood to adult stage. They do many things for the child which no one in the world will do. Such is their impact in the life of a child. So it is important that a child must respect his parents and fulfill all the duties towards parents. For a good student, it is the most important thing. If he can respect the two persons that are most influential in his life, then he will be able to do that in case of others.

Respect the Teacher

Next a good student should respect his teachers. A teacher is the architect of a society, of a student in general. He plays the crucial role of giving all the necessary educations that are necessary for the development of a student. So teacher must get the deserved respect from a good student.

In the Classroom

Now let’s enter the classroom. Though we have already talked about the teacher, he is not always present in a classroom. That place is acquired by the classmates. A good student must be helpful towards his classmates. He should not differentiate any classmate with other. This differentiation rule can exist in case of normal students. But a real good student should be above all this type of behavior. By doing so, he will learn how to help people around him which will be beneficial for his future. He will then be able to mix up with people of his surroundings and as a result he will able to affect the people by his good qualities.

This is the attitude of the classroom. Also a good student has to be a lively character in his educational institute. He should not only concentrate on bookish studies, abut also take part in extracurricular activities. This will help him greatly. A good student must seek knowledge with full zeal and zest. That’s why important to get into extracurricular activities. This will keep the competitive edge within the students mind in a positive manner. He will be able to get a good going in his future life.

A good student must possess a very good character. He should avoid all the bad habits such as smoking, quarreling with others, abusing and many more. This will help him to become a role model for the other people of the society. His exemplary attitude will make many others try to become like him which will be beneficial for the society’s progress.

Serious About Studies

      Yes, indeed interaction between the parents and a student is very much important. If parents are a bit cautious, they are enough in building up all or most of the qualities within the child that I mentioned in the hub. For that the relation between the parents and the children should a friendly and cooperative one.

      Respecting our parents is a very important thing in our life. Parents play a key role in our life. They fulfil all our needs from the time when we are not even able to walk. So it is easily understandable what should be our attitude towards our parents. But even many good students nowadays seem to disrespect their parents. I’m greatly thankful to the author for bringing up such an important point. Respecting the elders used to be a common phenomenon in the old societies. But now things have changed drastically and the society is suffering for this. So good students should be reminded that they have to be good towards others too. That’s what everybody expects from them. And this phenomenon should start with parents. If a student learn to respect the parents, it will be easy to do the same with others. For that both the student and the parents have to play a interrelated role so that the process becomes successful.

      The qualities mentioned in the post by the hub author really need to be thought modern with regards to the modern day societies. These qualities are fading away from the society day by day. That’s why we only consider those students as good who have good academic results or any special extra-curricular activity. But the qualities mentioned in this hub get unnoticed most of the time. This is indeed a big mistake we all make. We need to rectify this practice right from the root level. When we nurture our children, we must be very careful about teaching them these qualities. If the parents are conscious about this, they can make their child a better human being which will in turn benefit the society. Also the school teachers have a great role to play in this regard. Teachers are the architect of the society. If they can teach the children these things, then the society will be benefited from all aspects.

      Nice one...For a student, if he is able to respect towards his parents, it can be assured that he shall show respect to his country in future. If not, those cases are exceptional one.
