Sir: Nobody is born perfect or ideal. It takes time to introduce habits that make a student ideal. Both the parents and teachers need to put in efforts to bring out the hidden potential in a child. An ideal student is one who studies dedicatedly and behaves sincerely in educational institution and also takes part in co-curricular activities. Every parent wants his child to become an ideal student who serves as a role model for others. They like to be on the top and work hard to achieve that position. Teachers are also caring of such students and they are appreciated wherever they go. However, every student wants to become a friend of an ideal student but this is the old trend because now every student of that class becomes jealous with the bright student. They look at them with bad eyes and always make funny of that student. However, ideal student do not listen these types of talks in class and they always busy in their work and achieve high in life. Teachers also play an equally important role in shaping up their students’ personality. They need to look for ways to impact them positively and encourage them at every step. He is one who is disciplined and has a vision in life. He is not the one who never fails but one who doesn’t give up on failing. He tries again and again until he succeeds. He is keen on learning new things. ABDUL WADOOD Lahore Published in Daily Times, January 12th 2019.
