Motivation is a crucial thing. With motivation we can achieve anything in life. While adults can easily overcome lack of motivation, children have great difficulty in getting inspired.
Your kid comes home with constant C’s when you know he’s able to get A’s. Your concerns are understandable; you want to provide your child with a good future, which means higher education and well-paid job.
However, your child is about laziness, irresponsibility and no interest in studying. On the other hand, children usually are motivated by completely other things.
Have you noticed your son’s excited eyes when it comes to electronics or how enthusiastic your daughter is about drawing? The point is that kids should make progress in all the subjects in order to pass their final exams successfully. Take a look at my tips on how you can motivate your child to learn better. They do work!
1. Establish a friendly and open relationship with your child
Parents should be the most influential people for their kids. Unfortunately, many parents use threats, punishment and manipulations in order to gain authority over their children. But these methods will surely lead you to nowhere and only spoil your relationship.
No matter how angry or frustrated you are, you cannot display these emotions. Try to understand that your child is not a good-for-nothing and he doesn’t do it on purpose just in order to make you crazy.
Always strive for an open dialogue with you kid. Ask questions and talk about his subjects.
Trusted conversation means your kid can share his thoughts with you without the fear of being criticized and punished. Children are often curious about things and they can be easily motivated when they understand that something makes sense or is important.
