Trying to get your kids to succeed in school can be a tough challenge
In fact, there are a few simple tips and tricks we can take away from e-learning for kids and their parents which can help our kids on their own paths to success!
Do your kids study and do their homework in front of the television? At the kitchen table? Or in some other space which isn’t dedicated to their studies? If so, here’s your first step toward encouraging good study habits.
Get your kid a study desk. No, the computer desk, which has room for little more than a mouse, keyboard, and widescreen monitor. A study desk needs to be a place your kid can sit down, open up a textbook, and take notes. It should be neat and clutter-free, a place dedicated to studying.
Study habits are called habits for a reason. Many Chinese students will study and do homework for an hour each day at a set time. This time isn’t broken up to watch a favorite TV show, eat a snack, or play games, it’s an hour dedicated to studying.
The beauty of it is that although a full hour of study each day is above the average for a lot of Western students, because the work is concentrated into a single unbroken time period, kids are free to enjoy the rest of the day after they’ve finished their study time. This reduces stress over deadlines and unpreparedness and allows them to get more enjoyment out of other activities.
