Everyone does a lot to ready their child for school – from buying supplies to enforcing bedtimes, probably a lot of stuff. But there are things more than the physical facet of readiness which is emotional readiness. We are here to help you.
Here are some of the top tips for you to help your child succeed in school.
Calibrate the Morning-Regime
Sometimes, what happens in the morning is that we are trying to get things done at the last minute, there is rush, arguments take place and kids can get upset. They carry this emotion to the school and the day starts with a wrong feeling.
It’s advised not to rush and meticulously plan the morning-regime, get things done on time and to prepare a quick protein rich diet – research says that kids with protein rich diet tend to be more efficient.
Make them Independent
As kids grow older and older, the amount of responsibilities tends to increase and so does the need of them to be self-sufficient. School is the best place where kids can learn the lesson of being independent to face future problems. Start by giving kids small responsibilities such as separating the silvers from the dishwasher, making their bed etc. By doing this kids may start taking responsibilities of their studies and marks both.
Be an example
If you want to instill reading habits in kids then you should make sure that they see you reading. Kids tend to learn more from observing rather than being preached. Reading books with kids make them like the idea of reading. In simple words, be the person you want your kid to be. And using this technique you can make your kid learn almost everything you want.
Cooperate with the Instructor or Teacher
There are many times when parents disagree with the teachers and it is completely human to have different perspectives. What is important is that in such cases parents should not say bad things about that teacher in front of the kids.
If not done so, then the kid might lose respect for that teacher that may in turn bring behavioral problems. Maybe, even lower kid’s interest in the school eventually.
You can talk to the problem to the teacher or school management privately. Respect the teachers in front of kids and leave a positive message.
Good Homework vibes
Many houses are there in which the word “homework” brings a groan on the face. It is important that it not the parents who do it first. As a parent you are supposed to have a positive attitude about almost every school related things.
First of all, be happy about homework and teach your kids its importance. Second, make a plan and dedicate a place for studying. Focus more on making kids take the responsibility of their assignments and homework. A school teacher says “If your kid forgets the assignment at home then don’t bring it, let him or her experience the consequences.”
In the end, just let kids learning.
