A lot of information has been shared on the internet on the significance of children playing as it aids in growth and development. Even though playing is important, with the current challenging academic environment, it is important that parents help their kids to develop studying habits from an early age. This will help them to adjust to this changing academic environment as a result of their prowess in the field. But it should be noted that good study habits do not come naturally or easily. Kids are to be taught how to develop them. But the question is how?
Introduce Academic Activities at an early age
When your child is still young as two years old, introduce activities like drawing, reading books, learning new vocabulary, engage in grammar exercises and even learning simple arithmetic. Pick up some commercial learning materials for your children like flash cards, workbooks, games and art supplies. Also, spare some time and ensure your kids complete the assigned activity. Not just handing them a book and walking away. Sit there and see how they work on the activity.
Teach them to take Studies as a Priority
When children start receiving homework from school, instruct them or teach them to finish homework before they can start playing. During weekends, you can set aside an hour let’s say from 10 am to 11 am to complete their homework or any academic work that you might have prepared for them. It is also good that you be active in your children studies, and you can do this by asking questions and asking questions about the topics they are studying.
If your child does not enjoy the subject or rather not gifted, help him/her with the work and encourage them. You can help them by providing questions which you know they can answer by themselves successfully. This will boost their morale to tackle the harder ones.
Never get frustrated if children do not corporate. Be patient and always insist that your routine is just like the ways things are to be done.
