Some children need frequent breaks from learning. When these breaks are predictable, children will be less likely to request a break and more likely to stay on task.
When reading a book, ask your child questions about the story, such as “what do you think will happen next?” or “what is the problem in the story?”
Children often feel supported when you stay close by while they are completing tasks. If your child is struggling, provide him or her with a clue to the answer, or provide half the answer and have him or her complete the rest.
Children feel proud of themselves when they work hard to meet a goal. You can create goals with your child by asking him or her what he/she wants to learn or improve at, and why. Read Howard Gardner's theory of nine multiple intelligences to understand child's proness.
Children benefit from being told what they are doing right or wrong in the moment. You can minimize how often your child practices a skill incorrectly by correcting him or her right away, rather than waiting until he or she has finished the task.
Show your child you have high expectations for his or her learning. You can do this by encouraging your child to try new things that may feel hard. Having ongoing conversations about your child’s goals throughout the week will show him or her that you see the goal as important.
You can build your child’s self-esteem if you praise or reward his or her effort even when a goal is not met.
