Child acim authors is important for successful future. Hence it is natural to feel worried when our children do not perform well in studies. It is even more natural to glare, scold and shout at them.
But all these actions don’t really help to improve children’s education. More probably, it will just add to their tensions and problems.
Do not label your children with degrading titles like: “Stupid,” “Lazy,” and other negative names which create poor self-image. Firmly believe that your children are capable of achieving anything they really desire.
Children who don’t perform well in studies have some problems. These problems can be solved if identified. To identify problems, observe your children closely and ask them questions. Here are examples of some common problems of children:
This is one of the best ways to improve your children’s performance. Search for some good study habits or skills of your children and talk about it.
No matter how poorly your children are performing right now, there might be some topic or study skill in which they are good.
For example, your son might be good in spelling, or reading or drawing diagrams. Your daughter might be good in math or biology or in remembering formulas. Think about it and praise your children for their good education skills.
Also, search for some education related achievements of your children in the past and discuss it with them. For example, perhaps your son had got ‘good’ remarks on his science report. Or perhaps your daughter had scored better grades in some subjects last year, or even year before that.
Discuss such past education related success. Remind your children about their achievements, however small it is. This will shift your children’s mental focus on their good study skills and on their ‘education success.’ They will realize that they do have the ability to learn. The power to win.
Tell your children, “If you can learn one thing, you can also learn other things. If you can achieve success once, you can achieve it again.” Such words from you will strongly motivate your children to succeed in education.
