Motivating Your Child to Learn
Every child is a good learner. They just have different things that motivate them. Some kids like ice cream after getting a good grade, others are content with cuddles after their day in a child development center.
Creative Beginnings believes that there are other ways you can motivate your child to learn more besides the cute star stickers they earn in their day care in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
- Encourage reading at home by setting the mood. Create a cozy reading/homework nook for your child. Minimize their distractions, but don’t forget to make the room look fun and relaxing.
- Let them take control. When a child feels as though they are not in control, they will most likely push back. Allow them to take the wheel when it comes to minor decisions in their life. An example would be allowing them to choose which of their homeworks they’d like to do first.
- Focus on their interest. Allowing your child to focus on the topics they are interested in makes learning a lot more fun. If your child likes fishes, give your child access to engaging and interesting books and stories about fishes.
