If you need to drag your child to school every day, while they are wailing and refusing to go, you know that something needs to change. Your kid might not understand it at an early age, but school opens up a lot of opportunities later in life and your anxiety regarding your children’s academic performance is a natural impulse conditioned by your own experience. You know that a good academic achievement paves the way to college and consequently helps your child land the job that will make them satisfied and fulfilled for years to come. This is why it is your responsibility as a parent to do everything in your power to spark their interest for learning and school. Here are some ideas on how to achieve that.

Show interest in studying

Children, especially youngsters, base their behaviour on what they see you do. Make sure your kids catch glimpses of you deeply immersed in a book or do an adult teaching course to show that learning never stops. They need to understand that school is just one stage in their life-long learning process. Another good idea is to take your kids to local or foreign trips whenever you can and point out how geography, biology and other subjects can help us better understand and appreciate the world around us.

Change your attitude

If your kids’ grades are falling year in, year out and you feel that with their natural curiosity and quick wits they could have straight A’s if only they were a bit more diligent, don’t show your frustration by yelling or threatening. As a parent, it is natural to be concerned if your kid is underperforming despite your effort to support and motivate them, but aggressive reactions make you seem out of your depth and unable to cope with the issue at hand. Your kid is probably not doing bad at school to frustrate you, and there is a concrete reason for their lack of success which you should do your best to find out. Try being calm and respectful and develop an open relationship in which both of you will be able to state your true concerns. 

Provide children with study help

Help your child create a timetable for homework and extracurricular activities, which will help increase their awareness of time-management at an early age. You should also be there to give them a hand with homework if they need it. Young children appreciate your efforts in particular, and feel motivated by having somebody to rely on when they are struggling. If you are puzzled by their assignments or you cringe at tricky math problems, it might be best to consider getting help from professionals. This type of help has become widespread due to its effectiveness and getting private tutoring in Australia has never been easier. One-on-one classes are specifically designed to meet the needs of each child, which is how they ensure better progress, as well as boost children’s motivation and self-confidence.

Make learning fun

What usually discourages children is having to study subjects they find boring or cram facts about long-gone times they don’t understand. When students don’t see the purpose or the real-life value to what they are doing, studying becomes a slow and tedious activity. To counteract this attitude, show how fun learning can be by transforming your kitchen into a lab where you can conduct simple experiments related to your kids’ schoolwork. You can also use plenty of resources such as libraries and museums to nurture their interest. If they’re studying birds, going to the zoo and observing those species can be the right nudge that will help them maintain interest. Taking your children to a park or natural reserve, and talking about wildlife and plants can also be a great help in making them love nature and love learning about it.

Your child’s attitude towards school depends on your own attitude and involvement in their education. Be positive, encouraging and patient and the likelihood of fostering their love for school will significantly increase.
