Motivation: The Key to Your Child's Educational Success

Motivation: The Key to Your Child

A child starts learning even before he or she starts schooling. Therefore, it is important for parents motivate their child to learn as early as possible before he or she enters school. Have a quick look at the tips for motivating kids to start learning at an early age for their educational success.

For the first year or two of life outside the womb, our brains are in the most impressionable state they will ever be in. A
baby's brain is immediately shaped by the environment. As a parent, one can have a large influence on one's newborn's first encounters with learning.

The mind learns optimally when appropriately challenged in an environment that encourages taking risks. However, under perceived threat, the mind does not perform as well. This makes it harder to learn when you are nervous, stressed, or not feeling well.

Before a child learns to talk, they experience emotions. Emotions are another source for improving memory. People are better at recalling stories that held strong feelings. The emotional context plays an important role in the learning process. People with excellent memories have multiple interests. We naturally remember what we are interested in. As a parent, it is crucial to teach your child the value of learning.

Motivation is the key to learning. You can help your child discover this thirst of knowledge before she even enters school. Here are some key steps in preparing your child to be a stellar student:

Read to Your Child Daily

Fill your home with reading material such as novels, newspapers, and educational magazines. Children are influenced by their surroundings. When a son or daughter sees a parent reading at a young age, it makes an impression. As parents, we can foster that with a love for learning. Parents are the most important modelling agents in a child's life.

Let Your Child Explore His Interests

Encourage your child to explore his or her interests. If you have a son who loves animals, offer him some educational books about animals. If he is young, allow him to explore the world Of the National Geographic Magazines. You could also direct him to some websites that explore animal facts. Your enthusiasm over your child is motivation in itself.

Use Fun Ways to Encourage Learning

Provide play opportunities that offer different types of learning styles. Play is one of the most powerful vehicles through which children master new skills, concepts, and experiences. This will help them solve the challenges they meet in school. Through the use of blocks, your child will develop his or her creative expression and problem-solving skills.

Encourage Kids to Be Organised

When your children start school, make sure that they are organised. An organised folder lends to an organised mind.

Celebrate Achievements

Reward your child for large and small achievements, whether it's finishing a book or completing a major assignment in school. Positive reinforcement encourages a child to continue to challenge themselves.

Encourage Learning from Day-to-Day Life

Use every day events as learning opportunities. Encourage your child to explore his or her world. Continually ask questions and make connections that build upon their existing knowledge. The brain learns through associations.

As central role models, moms and dads have the responsibility to create an environment that fosters a love for learning.
