How To Develop The Study Habits Of Your Child

How to develop your child's study habits. Developing study habits.

Developing the study habits of your child at an early age is a good foundation. This is also the time where he begin to understand the meaning of the word 'discipline'. No two children are alike. Understand that there are child who are interested in studying soon as it is introduced, while there are others who do not pay attention no matter how much you try to steer him into that quiet study room. Let us have a look on things where we can make learning enjoyable for us and our child.

  • Get him a children's book. Encourage him to shuffle the pages and if he shows interest, let him do some coloring and tracing.
  • Do not get frustrated when he does not respond positively on your attempt to teach him. Do not force him either. It will only make matters worse. Explain to him that other kids his age are already studying and he should do the same.
  • Do not criticize him whatever the result of his piece. Instead praise him and tell him to make it better next time.
  • Make it a point to answer when he is asking you some questions. It broadens his little mind as he discover things around him.
  • Try to incorporate your teachings while playing. You could, for example, ask him to count his toys, identify the colors and shapes.
  • Be conscientious when your child shows sign of weariness when you are trying to teach him. Realize when he feels bored and anxious to play. By all means, let him go. Too much studying can be traumatic if imposed at an early age. Their attention span is not the same as ours. Tell him he can play now, but he must study some more later. Let him play and rest and he will come back refreshed, and ready to study again.
  • Let him mingle awhile with older siblings (if any) when they are studying. It will form an idea in his mind that studying is important and it is normal. Also, be ready to take him away when he is proving to be a destruction to his brothers or sisters.
  • Do not shout or say something negative when he does something wrong. It is part of developing his mental and psychological capacity. Instead, guide him and explain how to correct his mistakes.
  • Rewarding you child is one way of showing appreciation for a job well done. So if he's done something good or out of ordinary, you may consider giving him a small token. It will make him more eager to do better.

Patience and understanding are key factors in helping our child to develop a good study habit. It may take time but what matters most is your unwavering encouragement and support to guide and build his young mind.
