Helping Kids Study Motivation
Struggling with homework and study motivation? Noticing your child is giving up in their work?
These are the strategies we teach to students and parents to help them succeed.
In this article, I want to share some motivational techniques for children to help you support your child through exams as well as provide them with study inspiration that will see them through to success. This is a compilation of my experience from many years of working as a professional life coach for kids.
One question comes up the most during parenting classes, “Why is goal setting so important when we talk with our children?” Read this real life conversation:
Ok, so you had the talk. They made a fuzz about it and you carried it on. The first few days were a bit difficult, they didn’t finish. Perhaps, you might be thinking they’ll never do it. So, you start giving them more time, sitting down with them, answering questions as and when they want…. you see where I am getting to. This is a popular encounter I get during my parent coaching classes
It is likely that, you, like me, have been in a very different homework routine for a few years. Any significant change will challenge your children’s sense of safety. It might even challenge their perception of how much you care for them. It will definitively challenge their desire to have you near by every time they ask or look around. In my years of coaching kids, the last concern is the one that comes up the most in parenting classes.
This is one of the biggest misconceptions I have come across throughout my career as a child life coach. Because the goals are not properly set, it becomes difficult even for parents with good parenting skills to determine where their assistance should start and where they should stop. Here are the goals that should guide every homework routine.
