Rightly said by Ignacio Estrada, “If a child cannot learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.” Learning is an important process that helps each one as a living being to grow in life. Learning is not only restricted to human beings. In fact, it is also equally important for the animals. The pets and other wildlife at circus are made to how to behave and various other things. Besides, in the life of human beings, learning starts at a very initial age. When a child starts growing up, he/ she is made to learn a lot of things and when he/ she gets admitted to kindergarten the process of learning gets more intense. But, the main point to notice is that the process of learning starts at home.
When the child is in the process of growing up, the pressure to attain education and knowledge increases. Some children can deal with such pressure effectively and easily grabs what they are being taught while other find it difficult to cope up with the process of learning. It is not the fault of a child who finds it difficult to learn in the first place because each one of us is born different and this fact needs to be respected.
Since not all the fingers of a hand are same, we are going to discuss various approaches in this article that can help you as a parent to enhance the learning capabilities of your child.
- Read more and more
Reading is one of the key to success and the process starts at home when you read those fairy tales to your child to put him/her to sleep. What is to be considered here is that you should not only read to your child but also get involved in the process of asking questions to your child and discussing the stories. This process helps in enhancing the ability of your child to think.
- Get to know what your child studies at school
It is very important for you as a parent to know what your child is studying in school, the assignment tasks, going through their text books and talking to their teachers. After you know what your child is studying in school, you can serve as a helping hand and assist your child in studies.
- Don’t pressurize your child to score an A always
It is good to ask your child to study and motivate him/her to perform better in academics but at the same time you must accept the fact that their hard work may not always turn into scoring A in every subject they study. You should consider it totally okay. The less pressure you put on your child to score better, the more comfortable it is for him/ her to learn.
- Always consider the basic needs of your child
Besides taking care of everything that your child needs to do well in life, make it a priority to take care of the basic needs. Such basic needs include: nutritious food, good and enough sleep, medical care, good hygiene etc. All this is important in the very first place for the wellbeing of your child.
- Find out what motivates your child
It is very important for you as a parent to find out what motivates your child at best. Talk to your child. Get to know him/ her well and find out what is it in the first place that boosts his/ her energy to do well in life. Use that force as a factor to enhance your child’s performing abilities.
- Let your child succeed and fail on his own
Yeah!! We accept the fact that you play a prominent role in setting your child’s life towards attainment of success or failure. But, at the same time we would ask you to let your child depend more on self and be responsible for whatever comes in his/ her way towards success or failure in life. Let your child perform his/ her activities and assist him/ her when he goes wrong or commit mistakes. This process of trial and error will help your child to be more responsible, organized and independent.
- Praise and encourage your child
Be the biggest cheer leader of your child and this would serve him in the best manner. Make him believe in himself and let him know that no matter what you are always there. This unconditional support will help your child in being confident in whatever he does.
