Many kids do not like change. How about incorporating some of the things they do in school in their own home? this is especially true when it comes to homework. A few tweaks can help your child endure studying with less complaining. The techniques are not hard to do and can fit into your budget. Your child will appreciate this because you they know you are doing this for them. Here are some of the things from school that you can try out in your home:
You can try painting your child’s room a bright color. If you notice in most schools nowadays, almost all of the classrooms are painted in bright colors. That’s because they know that when you do this, children can respond better when they study if the walls are lively and inviting. If you painted darker colors, it can be boring to them. Try painting your child’s room to any type of bright color out there.
Invest in books and other educational items. Children can learn more and build up their vocabulary if they read more. You can increase their love of books if you buy them some reading materials they like. It doesn’t matter what kind of genre those books are as long as they read them. Children nowadays are too reliant on computer games to fill time.
Replace the DS with Harry Potter, substitute the Wii for the Wimpy Kid, and replace TV with The Mysterious Benedict Society. You can also buy some educational toys that they can enjoy playing. These are great because they can have fun and learn something at the same time.
Design your child’s bedroom or playroom so that it looks like a fun classroom. You can do that by buying similar items that you can find in an ordinary classroom such as chairs, desk, peel & stick decals and classroom rugs. There are many kids rugsavailable today that can look like the one they use in classrooms. This is a great idea because when you do this, your child can have more fun studying in their rooms because it is more comfortable and more relax.
Schedule your child’s study time. This is a technique that most schools use because they know that it can be hard for a child to learn everything at the same time. When you have a specific schedule to different subjects, it can be great because it can cover all the subjects in school. You don’t have to be stuck in one subject alone because you can cover all of the subjects in school when you know how to schedule it all well.
Take a break when you are studying. Do you know why there is a recess? It is an important part of a child’s day because this is the time where they can relax and play in the middle of their school day. You can also do this during your child’s study hour so that they can take a break even for a few minutes.
