Exams are over! And all of a sudden you have all the time in the world. Minus revision, there would be so many things to do – sleep, party, binge on Netflix, travel, catch-up with friends, all these and many more.
When a child is taught in a way he wants to learn, learning becomes interesting and the level of participation from the child also increases. Hence, if your child is struggling at school it does not mean that your child is not intelligent. However, struggling at school should not be seen as struggling academically only, the struggles can be social, emotional and behavioural. These struggles need addressing differently.
Children understand positive attitude better when they see their parents demonstrating that attitude every day. Change yourself (if you lack a positive attitude) to make your children optimistic and resilient. Depending on the age of the child they perceive things and express their emotions differently, so being consistent in demonstrating a positive attitude will in turn help your children develop a positive attitude, and would eventually shape them into emotionally stable, resilient, motivated and energetic adults.
