6 Simple Ways To Help Kids Learn

Kids look up to their parents, this is no surprise. This is why they run home with art projects and graded assignments looking for praise and pride from their role models. When asked who their heroes are, “my mom” or “my dad” are common responses. But what happens when that child is bringing home poor grades or notes from teachers? What can be done when a child is struggling to learn? Here are several things parents can do to improve their children’s learning abilities in almost every subject.

 

  1. Work closely with your child’s teacher

Become a learning partner. Ask questions. Teachers love to hear from parents who are actively involved in their children’s education.

  1. Talk to your child daily

Even if it’s only for a few short minutes. Ask about school experiences. Make sure he/she understands that the more they learn, the more likely they will find a good job when they are grown and that good grades can earn college scholarships.

  1. Encourage your child to be a leader

Appearances matter to kids and so they might think being smart isn’t “cool.” Instead of explaining to them why this is false, lead by example. Tell them stories about you being smart at work or out in the community and the positive impacts this has on your life.

  1. Stay informed

Read all information sent home with your young student. There are important parent-teacher conferences or school events and it’s a way for you to get to know your child’s school and teachers. If you bring your kids to some of these meetings, you might even get a tour of the school by your very own student. Share their school pride.

  1. Keep attendance high

Unless they are truly sick, make sure your child attends school daily. All kids want an occasional day off, and we get that! But teach them champion behavior, which emphasizes good school attendance.

  1. Help with homework

You don’t need an advanced degree in education to help with the basics. Early learning can simply be learning the letters of the alphabet. It’s been shown that kids who learn the alphabet early turn into good readers and good readers tend to be successful.

 

These days, it’s a challenge to be a parent, but we believe that following these few simple rules can make a big difference in your child’s future.  Be the best and achieve success!
