5. Scrutinize your kid’s personality
Different children require different approaches, that’s why don’t get disappointed if a certain motivational technique worked with your older kid but it fails with your smaller one. Be attentive and watch every detail about your child’s character and temperament. For instance, introverts and extroverts need absolutely opposite approaches. Extroverted kids will feel comfortable about active games, quick change of activity and noisy siblings nearby, while introverted kids will find it impossible to concentrate unless they are given a quite working place and slow pace.
You should also pay attention to the period when your child is the most energetic and cheerful. Don’t compel you kid to do his homework once he gets home. Most probably the kid needs an hour or two of rest or sleep.
