One who studies is a student so in the first place if you are not willing to study then you cannot call yourself a student.:P Now lets get down to 'children'. Childhood is the period for training. Education is a part of this training of life. We must accept that without studying we can reach nowhere but children may not realise this. Naturally it becomes inevitable that they need to be coaxed into doing what is necessary. If a child refuses to listen to the coaxing which to me is a mild way of coaxing then they have to be forced. How far this force will go and what method of force will be used is debatable. Monitoring of studies by adults is also a force used. When the outcome will be positive then force has to be applied. You have made a statement but not put in any argument so I am not writing much. However I am waiting eagerly for your argument so that we may have a good debate. Happy debating.
Well,, well, what do I argue against. I can only state my opinion. It has been noticed that children with a high level of intelligence or a very low level of intelligence are the ones who do not study. Such children will study under 'force'. Unfortunately the human mind considers force negatively when it comes to issues like children and studies. They prefer to use the word guidance. How can one guide a child who is not studying? Force need not necessarily mean use of physical force, it can be coercion. Chidren being children, cannot see what the benefit of studies is. Explaining things to them and making them connect education to their own well-being can be considered a force applied to guide children into studying. In this manner the force is applied to make them see the benefit of studies and thus indirectly using force to make them study. If a teacher in a classroom notices a student is distracted, then what is he/she meant to do? Obviously the teacher does not ignore the student nor does he/she concentrate only on that particular student at the cost of the others in the class. The best thing to be done is to use a method to convey the message that the teacher is aware that the student is inattentive. This 'force' will make the child return to the classroom situation .
