- Convey a Positive Attitude About Education
- Encourage a Consistent Reading Schedule
- Limit Screen Time
- Take a Moment to Sit and Talk with Your Child
Whether we like to admit it or not, children tend to pick up certain attitudes from their parents. If a father consistently says “ew” to vegetables, chances are the child will say the same thing. Having a positive attitude towards something as critical as education can convey a sense of importance to the child. When a positive attitude is attributed to something, they are more likely to try to succeed.
Reading is arguably the best skill a child can learn as it applies to all aspects in school and life. Every subject will require comprehension skills to grasp an understanding of the material. Getting your child started as soon as possible will only nourish that skill. A fun way to encourage reading is to make it a tradition. For example, you can read a chapter or two with your child before bed every night. Not only will it help with reading skills, but it will also be a good bonding experience.
Having unmonitored screen time as a child can increase the likelihood of being easily distracted. Kids often spend more time playing games on their phones than doing their homework. Instead, use it as an incentive. Once the day’s homework assignments are complete, then they can be rewarded with some screen time.
When you sit and talk with your child, you can get a sense of where they stand with certain subjects. Once you do so, you can make appropriate changes to help them if need be. It can also help them develop their language skills by answering questions and maintaining concentration on the conversation.
