Establish Good Study Habits in Your Child

Each person has his or her own ways of studying. Some can study anywhere, and some must be at an adequate place in order to absorb the material at hands. Find out how your child deals with his/her homework, and help him accordingly. However, as parents we should encourage and help formed good study habits for our child when they are still young.

Items Needed

  • Your devotion
  • Time
  • Discipline
  • Space
  • Desk and chair
  • School supplies: paper, pencils, pens, crayons, markers, erasers, etc…

Step One

Establish a routine for your child such as setting the time to do homework. Having a regular routine helps your child knows in advance what you are expecting, and eases his anxiety.

Step Two

Set a space in your home with a desk and a chair for your child to study. He will know exactly where his homework is, and will associate the tasks that must be done at that particular spot.

Step Three

Provide adequate school supplies such as pens, pencils, erasers, markers, crayons, scissors, etc. Having all of these supplies available will cut down on the time spending to look for them, or having reasons not to finish his homework.

Step Four

Give lot of praises, encouragements, and positive feedbacks. Provide help only when you see your child in distress to avoid frustrations with his study.

Step Five

Instill the love of learning in your child. Reading together, research on a special insect, or doing an art project will show your child your love for learning, and also will help him exploring his own interests.

Step Six

Admit the truth if you don’t know the answer, and ask your child to help you looking for the answer. This will help him builds his self-esteem and confident in his knowledge.

Conclusion

  • Love and encouragement are very powerful for a young child
  • Always be positive with your words
  • Be consistent with your rules
