In today’s busy pace of life, we at times wonder how we can possibly involve ourselves or show interest in our child’s education!
As both parents are working it is not possible for them to put much time with their kids for their studies. It is also possible that you have never performed well in school and never excelled in mathematics and then you are not eager to involve yourself in your kid’s studies as you are reminded of your days.
Getting involved with children in their studies does not mean that you have to involve yourself in your child’s studies only. Some activities like explaining to your kid about your family tree can be so much fun. In present times when Genealogy Bank has come up which can help you to discover the stories of your ancestors, the concept of a family tree can be really interesting to your kids.
Simple ways like those listed below can definitely help you to relate to your child through studies-
1. Show interest in what they are learning. Ask them”What did you do at school today? Then you can discuss what are his problems in any particular subject or what is it that he likes most. Try to make your conversation very light one, not like a strict parent.
- Do find time to attend his school meets and various other programmes. You can participate also in some activities which involve parents and kids both. This will boost his morale. Try to go to his co-curricular classes, and sports classes and discuss with him his interests. If you have a child going to college, you can guide him in choosing the right school with the help of the Academic Influence college ranking system.
- What type of environment you have created at home also affects your child’s personality. Buy books, magazines. Provide him all those extra resources that will help him in his studies. If he will never see you involved in some type of study then he will never get motivation. Try to discuss books he is reading from the library.
These activities will help you in a better understanding of school activities. You can observe how well your kid is performing and progressing. Besides this, it gives a chance to the parent to personally interact with his child and thus helps in strengthening their relationships. When your child will see that his parent is so involved in his activities then his self-esteem will increase. He will grow with a positive attitude in life and will excel in all spheres.
