How to improve child’s learning

Previous Next

Encourage a passion for learning

Kids’ beliefs and attitudes about things like persistence, hard work, planning and organization are shaped by the qualities they see in their parents, with these attitudes towards learning and study having a major impact on their success at school and the likelihood of going on to further education.

A side from modeling a good work ethic and positive attitude to your own working life, there are many ways you can help your child foster a great attitude towards school, which include always talking positively about school and respectfully about teachers, regularly praising your child for their efforts and encouraging them to persist when things become challenging.

Share your hopes for your kids

While many parents nowadays can be wary of placing unnecessary pressure on their children, it’s still important to dream big for your kids, and let them know it. Research has found when a parent holds high dreams and aims for their kids, they perform better at school.

Be sure to let your child know you think it’s important they do well at school and most importantly, that you believe in their potential and ability.

Ask your child everyday what they learnt at school, or what they found interesting or fun at school. Talk to your child often about the dreams and plans they have for their future.

Help your child to enjoy learning

Children develop their attitudes and beliefs in their abilities from their parents. Symptoms such as tenacity, persistence, planning and organization and the important ability to ask for help are often qualities children model from their parents. If your child has a positive attitude to learning, they are more likely to go onto further study. Encourage your child to learn from their mistakes and to keep trying, even if they find something difficult.

Get daily feedback

Children who are able to talk freely about their day with their parents have the best educational outcomes this doesn’t just refer to the school day, but discussing other activities, such as what went on in the playground, books they’re reading, films or TV shows they’re watching, etc. Ask your kids open-ended questions, such as ‘What was the best/worst part of your day?’ and yes, this can sometimes take a little bit of repeated probing. Trying to make time for the family to come together at dinner to discuss the day is a great way to make this happen. You can also ask your child’s teacher for a list of the work they’re covering every few weeks or so, or get some ideas from their homework, and ask questions based on what they’re learning.

Read with your child

Parents that regularly read out loud with their children help them to do better at school. Reading with children is the best way to teach them how to read and to simply enjoy stories. Teach your child to love reading instead of focusing on teaching them the mechanics of how to read. Share your own stories with your child about your life. Read books or newspapers for enjoyment. Read and talk about books and stories with your child. Ask your child about their favorite character in a book or what they think might happen next in the story. Speak and tell stories in your native language this is very beneficial to your child’s education and life experience.

Get involved with your child’s school and local community groups

Research suggests that when schools, families and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and have positive attitudes toward school. Volunteering and getting involved with activities in school is not only a great way to meet new friends and fellow parents and gain a better understanding of your child’s school life, it will pay dividends for your child’s schooling on several levels. Talk with your child’s teacher about their school work and learning goals. Meet with the school principal to discuss what you can do to help your child to get the most they can out of their schooling.
