Tips For Parents To Encourage Effective Learning Techniques

Here’s a little scenario: Your child likes school and submits assignments on time. But the effort is not translated into good grades you both expect from the kind of hard work your child is inculcating into studies. If this problem is familiar and you wish that your child enjoys the study. We have all the answers!

Keep reading for the tips and tricks to crack the code for effective learning techniques that you can follow outside the classroom:

Connect with child’s school and staff

  1. Talk with your child’s teacher more often

As soon as the session begins, try to visit school and meet the teacher in person. Make sure you tell the teacher to emphasize on your child’s behavior and inform you with immediate effect. Don’t let any barrier stop you! Your child’s future is more important than any other problem.

  1. Do not forget to attend the parent-teacher meeting

Schools arrange the parent-teacher meeting at the end of every session. Make sure to visit the school and let the teacher speak it out. You will probably get to know more about your child’s progress and behavior in the classroom environment. For instance, if you can’t go to school then it is better to communicate through email or phone calls.

  1. Investigate how your child behaves in the classroom

Inspect from the teacher how well your child is doing in the classroom. But if your child is lagging, immediately ask the school administration to take necessary action. Talk to the student guidance counselor for help, as well as, always check on your child’s report card.

  1. Learn what the school offers

Keep an eye on the school website and student handbook for important announcements. Talk to fellow parents or teachers about what school has to offer. Remember to keep track of school events throughout the session so that your child wouldn’t miss any after-school activity, sports, and part-time tutor sessions. 

  1. Let the school know about your concerns

Does your child fail to understand a particular subject? Is your child having trouble learning? Does your child show a change in behavior patterns? Is there some problem with any teacher or a fellow student? All your concerns need to be heard by the school authority. 

  1. Ask questions as much as you can

If something seems off, visit school and ask questions from the teacher or student guidance counselor to seek their opinion. Your questions can be like this- how can I stop fellow students to stop bullying my child? Why my child shows no interest in reading and doing group activities? What can I do to help my child get out of it?

Support your child for learning at home

  1. Set a schedule

Manage to maintain a schedule to promote effective learning at home. Let them develop a weekly planner to follow and mark important timeline for projects and class tests. Tell your child to complete project in chunks and little milestones. Break content of class test and revise the material one day before assessment. This will inhibit procrastination and promote a manageable work-load during the week.

  1. Have a positive attitude towards learning

You are reflecting a behavior into your child. If you show enthusiastic actions towards learning, your child might also feel the same. Try to explain to them learning is a gradual process and is a journey of discoveries along the way. Explore new steps of unique learning techniques and information.

  1. Conducive environment for learning

Does your child have a quieter workspace at home? If no, choose a designated space for a positive learning outcome. Encourage your child to take one step at a time- pick one subject for a specified time to stay more focused. Make sure they turn off all the devices during study hours. Try to monitor screen time by limiting the use of computers, play-station, laptops, and television. Avoid distraction and noisy rooms for focused learning habits. 

  1. Communicate more often with your child

Talking and listening to your children more often promotes healthy development and growth. Try to connect with your child and encourage them to ask questions and voice out their concerns wherever possible. They should not be afraid to tell you about assessment marks or subjects of their interest. This helps to develop a positive attitude among them. 

  1. Make learning fun

Wondering how to make a boring class into a fun project? Try to make learning a healthy activity that enables to enhance creative and critical thinking skills. Watch an interesting documentary or visit a museum/ monument together for learning about history. Use objects in daily routine to solve difficult math problems. Perform DIYs for making arts and crafts.

  1. Identify the barriers and resolve

Last but not the least, identify problems and nip the bug in the bud. Pinpoint exactly what’s bothering them in the classroom or remote learning. Is it a lack of interest or motivation? Too little or too boring lesson? Do they need a hug to start over? Diagnostic coaching is the most important approach and to identify accurately what they are struggling with.

Focusing on a child’s progress is better than spending loads of money without knowing the probable cause of their lack of interest in learning.
