Ways to Motivate Your Kids to Study

1. Maintain a practical approach

It is obvious for someone to get bored of studies if all they are doing is reading theory and having no practical experience. The best way to eliminate this monotony is by bringing in some practicality in theories. If he is studying history, take your son to landmarks and museums where he can really see the things which he only read about in the books. If she is learning about different animals, bring your daughter those classic old National Geographic movies to see them in motion. Help them see things beyond the book and live those theories in real life.

2. Make them understand the value of knowledge

As parents, we often have the tendency to push our child to get better grades, and if they don’t, we shower them with our disappointment. This is the most inappropriate behavior and can hamper your kid’s motivation. Instead, concentrate more on what he has learned. Every day, when your child returns from school, ask him or her as to what he or she has learned that day and acknowledge everything that they say.

3. Allow enough play time

A child can only enjoy studying if he or she is getting enough playtime. Forcing your kid to study day and night will never bring out any positive results. Make a schedule for them, allotting enough time for studies and balance that with their playtime. Make sure that he follows the schedule and positive results are bound to come

4. Get them into the habit of reading

Millions of books and novels of different genres are available for people of all age groups. Get your child into an early habit of reading. Right from childhood, you can begin by reading bedtime stories for them, and once they learn to read themselves, make sure they carry on with the reading. Reading good novels can create a love towards books which one cannot let go off.

5. Play games while teaching

Games are always fun. Take advantage of this and teach them important concepts with the help of games. This is really simple and only requires a little bit of creativity from your end, and you can come up with games of your own to relate to any subject.
