Encouraging Your Child to Study
Children and teens can feel schoolwork burnout. But as parents, we must be prepared in helping them regain their motivation. More importantly, early childhood education can only be effective if our children are motivated to learn.
In our daycare in New York, we make an effort in finding the best learning activities that fit your children’s needs. However, participation and involvement from parents are also greatly required in order to reinforce everything they learn in school. If your child is showing disinterest in schoolwork, you must explore whether there is some obstacle that’s getting in his or her way. Obstacles may be learning issues, attention problems, social challenges, and even emotional setbacks. However, not all kids who are underperforming in school have a diagnosable problem and there are a number of things parents can do to help motivate them to try harder.
Whether your child is attending school now or is attending affordable childcare, the same helping ways apply. As a parent, you must be present in your child’s academic life. Do homework with your child from time to time. Ask him or her about what she learned in school and share your own scholastic experiences as well. Conversing with them about school helps them feel its importance. You can also reward them for good work. But make sure that you also reinforce their efforts rather than the outcome. Finally, let them see the big picture by reminding them that school is a step closer to their dreams and goals.
Being a parent of a studying child has its challenges. So, if you need help, don’t hesitate to call our childcare center in New York, New York. We, at Independent Toddler Childcare, are ready to help.
