RADIO PROGRAM NO. 337 - Helping Students Meet Challenges at School

[The speaker is Harvey Wood. The questioner is Robert McKinnon.]

Questioner: At the start of a new school year young people often worry about facing up to the next stage of their junior high or high school experience. As the courses become more demanding and the academic pressure increases, many students feel the need of encouragement and help. What can a parent do to help the student with these problems?

Speaker: Well, he can take the practical steps of talking with him, helping him work out some sensible study plans, and encouraging him. But perhaps the most important thing of all is to make sure that the parent and child really have the right goals for school-work. If we, through an understanding of the Bible, can gain a spiritual goal, an unchanging goal, it will give stability to a child wherever he is.
