Motivating A Child to Learn

Do you want your child to be a on top of other students? Don’t limit their learning walls within his classroom. Although he can develop his intellectual and social growth but then he also needs your help to open up the world of his own ideas. Below are some of the ideas that a parent can do to help his child motivate to learn.
  1. Fill your child's world with reading. Establish a family reading ti}e '20 when everyone reads her own book. Show-20hov important reading is to you by filling your home with printed materials: novels, newspapers, even posters and place mats with words on them.
  2. Encourage him to express his opinion, talk about his feelings, and make choices. Listen to what your child is talking about and I’m sure you can get ideas out of it. Ask for his input on family decisions, and show that you value it.
  3. Show enthusiasm for your child's interests and encourage her to explore subjects that fascinate her. Discover what your child is interested to, and that will give you the idea on what reading materials you can offer. Challenge him to explore topics which will encourage him to open and read books.
  4. Provide him with play opportunities that support different kinds of learning styles — from listening and visual learning to sorting and sequencing. Supplies that encourage open-ended play, such as blocks, will develop your child’s creative expression and problem-solving skills as he builds. He will need lots of formless play time to explore them. 
  5. Point out the new things you learn with enthusiasm. Discuss the different ways you find like new information, tips or new discovery you found in the internet or in the news.
  6.  Ask about what he's learning in school, not about his grades or test scores. This is one way of helping him retain and remembering what he learned at school by letting him relay the lessons and discussions into his own words.
  7. Help your child organize her school papers and assignments so she feels in control of her work. If her task seems too be intimidating, and spend more time worrying than learning then take your turn to check in with her task regularly to make sure she's not feeling overfull.
  8. Celebrate achievements, no matter how small. If he/she achieves something big or small try to recognize it by giving him/her a treat. This will inspire him to keep learning and challenging himself.
  9. Focus on strengths, encouraging developing talents. Even if she was not able to at the top but excels in other field continue on developing his talents and give him materials to develop it more.
  10.  Turn everyday events into learning opportunities. Encourage him to discover the world around him, by asking questions and making connections.
