Raising a child in India comes with unique challenges and joys. As parents, ensuring our children receive the best education and opportunities is a top priority. Here are five essential considerations for navigating your child’s educational journey:

1. Cost of Education

The financial investment in education is significant. According to the Economic Times, sending a child to private school from ages 3 to 17 can cost around Rs 30 lakh, averaging Rs 2,14,309 per year. With the national average salary being ₹3,87,500 per year, it’s crucial to plan and budget for these expenses to ensure your child receives quality education without financial strain.

2. Digital Literacy

In today’s fast-paced technological world, digital literacy is imperative. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the digital divide, with many areas struggling to stay connected during online transitions. However, it also introduced children to digital tools at a younger age. Parents and educators must integrate technology into learning to help children adapt and innovate. Ensuring your child is digitally literate will prepare them for future academic and career opportunities.

3. The Importance of Tuitions

With increasing competition in today’s economy, additional academic support through tuitions can give students a significant edge. High scores on board exams open doors to prestigious universities and lucrative careers. Online tuitions not only enhance academic performance but also boost digital literacy.

At ConnectEd, we offer synchronous online lessons that allow students to interact with teachers in real time, ask questions, and clear doubts immediately. Our personalized approach ensures that each child receives the support they need to succeed. Sign up for a free lesson today and experience the ConnectEd difference.

4. Career Guidance

Parents often play a pivotal role in shaping their children’s career paths. National board exams prompt students to think about their futures at a young age, which can be stressful. It’s essential to create a supportive environment where children can explore various interests and discover their passions.

Encourage your child to participate in different activities and experiences to identify what they enjoy and excel at. If you’re looking for career guidance, follow our blog series on Careers for insights and advice.

5. Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are vital for holistic development. They provide hands-on experiences that complement academic learning, helping students develop a range of skills. Participation in activities such as sports, writing clubs, performing arts, music, or photography can enhance college applications, foster leadership skills, reduce stress, and encourage social interaction.

Encouraging your child to engage in extracurricular activities not only enriches their educational experience but also supports their personal growth and well-being.


Supporting a child’s academic progress is a collective effort between parents, teachers, and the broader community. At ConnectEd, we believe that strong relationships with parents are key to our students’ success. By working together, we can create a nurturing environment that allows our future leaders and innovators to thrive. Let’s collaborate to provide the best education and opportunities for our children, ensuring they grow into thoughtful and capable individuals.
