Daily routine for school children of 7th to 9th standard.

To be successful, requires lots of dedication as well as discipline.

Here I am proposing a daily planner, which I used to follow and it has helped many of my students to get in routine and maintain a balance between study and extra curricular activities.

6 am: Get up  :)
6-6:20am: Freshen up and have 1 fruit (preferable apple, as it has complex carbohydrates which will continue to give you energy when you are doing some physical exercise.)
6:20am-7am: Go for a walk/cycling/jogging with parents or some out door sports
7-7:30am:Heavy breakfast (1 BIG glass of milk with paratha/poha/dosa/egg and get ready for school
8am-2pm: School (If you are able to finish your Home work in school, then you will get more time with tab and laptop from 4-5pm )
2:30-3pm: Lunch (At least one of these protein sources is compulsory in your lunch Dal/sprouts/paneer/egg/chicken/fish)
3-4pm: Study (Revise school notes and finish all your homework)
4-5pm: If you are done with Home work and revision, then try to learn computer languages (may be C++ or Python) or make web pages on laptop. Kids find it very interesting. You may play chess, sudoku in this time.
5-6:30pm: Go for OUT DOOR sports and make sure that you must sweat before coming back home. (Now a days many kids dont indulge in any out door/physical activities. It is a must to increase your muscular  strength, overall growth as well as immune system.) I used to play daily 1 hour of rigorous cricket in Air force Station Adampur ground.
6:30-6:45pm: 1 BIG glass of milk and some protein rich snacks
6:45-7:45pm Study without break (Practice Mathematics, take help of your parents)
7:45-8pm:  Small break. Go and fight with with your siblings ;)
8-9pm: Study without break (any subject)
9-9:20pm Dinner (Again 1 glass milk and compulsarily one of these    Dal/sprouts/paneer/egg/chicken/fish)
9:20-10pm Some novel or Encyclopedia or any book of your interest. Make sure that 30 minutes before hitting the bed, you are away from tab/smartphone/TV/laptop.
10am-6pm Sleep ZZzzzzz......

I had followed a very similar schedule during my school days, you may change it as per logistics and preferences.  Onus is on parents to ensure that such plan is made and executed on daily basis. They should make their daily schedule compatible with student's schedule. Many worthy students have to compromise with their career just because parents failed to play their vital role at the right time.

Time to time you need to be little flexible with the planner. For example, me and my father loved watching cricket matches. Timing of these matches used to clash with study time and hence I was asked to compensate for those studies hours by doing some extra studies during my other leisure time slots.  Once compensated, then only i was allowed to watch a match as a reward.

Few more important points, which can help you for successful execution of the planner.
1.   If parents want to give their kids something of their interest, be it chocolate, dress or any gadget, then let them earn such things as reward. May be new dress or chocolates.
2    Try to keep it little flexible with  a tolerance of 10-15%
