What is Naina Jaiswal’s success secret?

Till the age of 5, my mother made me study at home. I didn’t go to school. At the age of 6 my father made me study basics like, English, Hindi and Telugu. And he developed my memory skills and handwriting skills. And this is the reason that I memorise the answers very quickly. I just understand the answer and write with my own language. And this is the secret of my education.” Naina Jaiswal

As an institution we have been very very lucky from the beginning to have International sports personnel as our alumini, example Lakshman, Gopichand, Sanya Mirza, And I am sure in future even Naina which will be on par with these names that we are talking who then be a International player.B.Mahender Reddi, Director, St. Mary’s College

Bringing up his daughter as a successful rounded individual, Ashwani Kumar Jaiswal helped his daughter Naina Jaiswal to change people’s outlook that “daughters are a liability”.

Her brother Aagstya Jaiswal could answer 300 questions at the age of two and 3000 at the age of five. The media had given him the nick name “Google Boy”.

Naina Jaiswal unanimously attribute the success of her and brother to their “super mom and super dad.” “We were coached by our parents completely from KG to PG,”.

Today we can find everywhere there is a cut-throat competition where parents put a lot of pressure on their wards to excel in studies. They try their best to get admission in the top schools in their area. Also spend thousands of money for private tuition. In this age, it is heartening to see these children being home-schooled in a relaxed environment. Naina Jaiswal is truly an inspiration to children.

Final Thoughts

Does it mean parents should stop sending their children to educational institutions? Not at all. Naina’s parents taught their kids at home, because they are well educated and the children have the talent for it. That is not the case in every family.

You don’t need to save money and property for your children. Give them good education, teach them to hard work and earn money for their living. The most important thing is to spend your hard earned money for providing good education to your kids. That is the biggest wealth you can give to them.
