Give your Time
It is very important to take out time from your busy schedule and sit with your children for some time from the very beginning. Ask them as to what they have studied in the school and how well they were able to grasp it. Also check as to what they have done post returning home. Set a time during which they need to study and make sure they concentrate on their studies during this time. Tell them how important it is to study to help generate interest.
They are in their learning phase and may make several mistakes from time to time. Don’t be harsh when they commit an error. It is important for you to be approachable so that they can seek your assistance whenever required rather than hiding things from you.
Appreciating your child for his achievements means encouraging him to do even better the next time. This will boost his enthusiasm and keep him motivated.
Keep a Watch
As a parent you must keep a check on your child’s activities in order to ensure that he is treading on the right path. Help him set a study plan to complete his homework and prepare for his exams simultaneously. Maintain a link with his class teacher in order to understand as to how he is performing in the school and how you can help him improve.
Every child is born different and learns at his own sweet pace. It is imperative for you not to compare your child with his classmates or friends. Comparisons will cause stress and impact his performance negatively.
