Who wouldn’t want to see their kids seriously studying right? It has been every parent’s dream to see their children being serious in school. However, everyone knows that studying is quite tiring and only few people are willing to sacrifice their sleep and time for it. During your school days, you’ve been wishing for the week to end and almost cursing the arrival of Mondays.
Nevertheless, you continued studying until such time that you graduated. You were able to develop study habits and now that you already have kids, you would want them to do the same. As parents, it is our responsibility to teach them how to do it. Our guidance is of great influence and there is no other great motivation for students to study but to make their parents proud.
As early as kindergarten, set a certain time for your children to study and do their homework. As much as possible, be firm to your rules. Giving rewards is also effective as prizes are great motivators. Do not just let your children study on their own. In as much as you want to promote independence, your kids need guidance. Knowing that you have your parents to help you out is one of the reasons to study hard.
In helping them out in their homework, just make sure you aren’t spoon-feeding the answers. Let them solve the problems first before they turn to your help. In short, just guide them and do not do the homework for them, how will they learn if that’s the case.
Teach them to make a study calendar and let them schedule their long term assignments. These will teach them not to cram when the deadline approaches. Lastly, cheer them up whenever they would encounter difficult lessons and remind them that they can do it.
