Five Ways To Unlock Your Child's Learning Potential

“Education is the foundation upon which we build our future.” - Christine Gregoire [1]

 

For a parent, there is no prouder moment than seeing their little ones thrive at school, rather than just survive the education system. To do their level best in school, a child has to unlock their learning potential from an early age. Here’s a step by step guide to help you help your child:

1) Make Reading A Daily Habit

The biggest advantage of reading every day is that your child gets an opportunity to articulate thoughts and write better. Whether it is the sports section of the newspaper or a chapter from a classic novel - by reading every day your child will pick up new words and understand language context.

2) Bring Out Their Creative Side

There’s a Makerspace project for every age group and interest out there, all you have to do is push your child to find fun ones and provide the materials. Every Makerspace project teaches something new to your child. That sense of victory which comes from completing a task that seemed difficult at first successfully is second to none!

3) Get Them Gaming

The best part about adding games to your child’s study routine is that they’ll never say “I’m bored” while playing. It can either be a break while studying for an exam or as a special treat for completing the entire portion. The best part is that your children will feel motivated to put in their all their efforts, helping them to unlock their potential.

4) Recognise Your Child’s Learning Style

Over the course of time and depending on the subject, your child will develop a learning pattern that works. As a parent, you have to make sure to recognise the style and encourage the use of the right PC resources.

5) Give Specific Feedback

Playing to strengths is tried and tested advice but what about your child’s weaker subjects?

The first step is to request teachers for specific, actionable feedback and then accordingly get help. The key here is to ask your child’s teacher a lot of questions whose answers are not just yes or no.

Don’t forget the PC is a great motivational tool for your child’s success.
