Oxygenated blood is blood that is rich in oxygen.
It should be ok to use that term.

Thanks for your response. I asked the question because the teacher told DS that it is a wrong term to use. I will also seek clarification from the teacher.

HOW YOU CAN HELP YOUR CHILDREN TO ACHIEVE ACADEMIC SUCCESS IN 4 PRACTICAL STEPS

#01: CREATE A ROUTINE
Parents have to understand that they need not be the teachers and solutions to the child’s academic questions, they should be focusing on playing the role of a FACILITATOR. “Kids benefit from having structure in their home life,” says Michael Popkin, PhD, author of Helping Your Child Succeed in School and founder of Active Parenting Publishers. Draw up and establish a routine for your child early in the schooling life to reap maximum benefits. The routine serves as a guide for the child to live a systematic and productive childhood. Do monitor and enforce it closely when it Is at the initial phase, and if necessary, provide some gifts and rewards as motivation to get your child interested. Following a routine is also beneficial for the child in the long term as the importance of routine will be instilled in them as they will be better able to make their own plans and schedule as they get older.

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW
Sit down with your children and work out a routine that compliments his current school timetable. Ensure that your children do have a say in the final outcome of this set of routine as this will instill a sense of accountability to them.

BONUS
Use IT Tools. Google Calendar is highly recommended for coming out with a family schedule. Key dates such as project deadlines/exam dates/family outing can be updated so that everyone in the household will be aware of it and make the necessary arrangements.


#02: USE THE RIGHT WORDS
Parents often speak to school-going children in an instructional and commanding voice. They have forgotten how they used to speak to the young ones so tenderly when they were only in pre- school. Once they step into formal schooling, parents speak to them like drill instructors with the expectations that they have to follow word for word. According to study, most children who are underperforming or underachieving in school experience low self- esteem and neglect. Put focus on effort rather than grades, “If they get a report card and they’ve got A’s and B’s and also one C, don’t just jump in on the C. Start with a focus on what they did well. Then talk about how they feel about the C and whether that represents good effort for them or if they need to work on it.”

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW
Examine your tone and attempt to speak with more patience and gentleness. Speak affirmation instead of accusations. They will respond more eagerly and will be more opened to share their struggles and joy with you.

BONUS
Let the kids overhear you praising them to others. See the positive aspects of your children and be proud of it, share it with people and the child’s self-esteem and self-confidence will be raised significantly.


#03: Create a suitable environment for your child
Provide your child with a proper and conducive study area that promotes learning. Ensure that this is a consistent designated study corner for your child. Most importantly, this area has to be significantly away from all possible distractions. We all know how TV and computers can be a huge competitor for your child’s attention, hence we really have to limit these activities to the minimum, at least on school nights. Try not to tempt your children by watching TV when they are doing their work.(Because as adults are facing a really tough battle with this temptation, don’t expect the kids to win this battle)

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW
Sit down with your child and list out all the possible distractions. Then, zone out the study corner in the house that would best fit the distraction-free criteria.

BONUS
Entertainment-only coupons. Each week, give out 5x1hour Entertainment-only coupons to your child which can be redeemed for TV/computer/leisure purposes. More coupons can be given to them as reward for their effort. Any coupons remaining at the end of the week can be cashed in for $2.


#04: Tripartite relationship is the KEY
This tripartite relationship involving Students, Parents and Teachers can only be well maintained if every stakeholder puts in an appropriate amount effort to do their part. For parents, do take the time and effort to communicate with the teachers, make the teachers your best ally. Work closely with them and hear from them the side of your child you may not see. Furthermore, tap on their expertise and seek feedback from them on how you can truly help your child specifically in the academic aspect.

WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW
Build a healthy relationship with teachers. You can start by writing a formal letter to thank them for their guidance and effort to nurture your child, after which ask them for their opinions and suggestions on how to improve on the current situation.

BONUS
Do give due praises to the teachers and form a strong relationship with them. They will be more inclined to go the extra mile to help you out as they see their efforts are being appreciated and affirmed. Take the effort to attend Parents Teachers Meeting and have a good discussion session with the teachers.
