DYORFYE: Do your own research for your education
DYOR is an acronym for Do Your Own Research.
DYOR is advice generally given to anyone getting involved in the cryptocurrency markets with real money, advising them to research topics on their own instead of simply believing some random Twitter ( now called X) account or Facebook article or YouTube influencer.
In the case of education, until the person becomes an adult capable of independent thinking, the research has to be fine by the parents. As the learner matures, he or she may also become part of the research group.
Doing your own research for your education is important for several reasons. It allows you to evaluate and analyze the available information. Doing such research helps you stay updated with the latest developments in the field of education. It enables you to verify the accuracy of information and form well-informed opinions. Education of your children is perhaps the most important decision with long term consequences.
It is your duty and responsibility as a parent to ensure your children’s cognitive development by always doing your own research and taking actions accordingly.
