Why Do Children Lose Interest in Studies

Many children lack interest in studies but parents must take right steps before such children completely lose interest. Here are some reasons why children hate studying and what parents can do to help them start loving studies again.

No one, especially a child likes to be controlled. They all prefer freedom but unfortunately, the concept of freedom for them often extends to areas that are necessary for their future growth and development, such as studying. Most children view studies as a way for parents to tie them down despite their obvious disinterest. In the back of their heads, they are aware that they need to do well in a classroom setting in order to win the admiration and respect of their peer group, teachers and parents but their need to have fun and enjoyment in their lives triumphs over these concerns.

Reasons Why Children Hate Studying

Here are some reasons why children start losing interest in studies.

Hindrance to Freedom

Children find studying extremely irritating and hard due to their preconceived false notions about school and the subjects of their study. Therefore, they eventually feel controlled and they dislike the feeling intensely. It all boils down to doing something you thoroughly enjoy and the majority of kids do not enjoy studying. They fail to realize that they can learn to love their studies if only they give it a chance.

Negation of Control

There are many kids in school settings who have this strong dislike for studying and so whenever they sit down to study their texts, they end up concentrating on something else. This is responsible for making them hate studying though some of them actually like reading. There are numerous children who enjoy reading books but they do not like being told what they need to read. Parents might try to convince their children to consider studying their subjects as reading something they like but in reality, studying requires a special sort of concentration and practice.

Kids should be actively encouraged by parents to come up with their own techniques that will make their process of study livelier and increase their ability to gain and retain information. An increase in memory capability is greatly recommended since it enables children to learn in a simple and easy manner.

How to Help Children Start Loving Studies?

Let us take a look at some ways to help children start loving studies.

Breaking down Barriers

You must first break the wrong notions that your children harbour towards studies by encouraging him or her to link his or her studies with images that appeal to him or her. In order for this technique to work, your kid must have an open mind so that he or she becomes capable of linking things with weird or unusual topics they will study in the course of time. This is basically a method of combining the good with the bad – the effect of associating unlikely objects with images that are actually appealing to the kids.

Visual Aids

If you are prepared to go the extra mile for your child’s benefit and inculcate the love of studies in him or her, you can begin by highlighting certain phrases and words in books that refer to various things. Make sure that you use different colours to mark the words since this makes the subject matter more cheerful to view and the kid may actually take the initiative to read what you have marked down so diligently for him or her.

Streamlining Studies

Another method that might work to spark the love of education within your child is to summarize the subjects that are being taught in school. You have to take an active part in the process since it can get rather complex but the end result is a lot of fun with knowledge. You and your child may draw flowcharts and maps on normal full-scape papers in order to make sure that he or she can revise them quickly and grasp the fundamental concepts present in the topic. This will not only make the entire process of studying easier but may increase his or her interest in studies.

Children should be made to understand the importance of studies. However, be careful that your words do not end up sounding like a lecture. Try to explain the ill effects of not studying and how it can impact his or her future in order to get your child’s full attention in studies.
