It is so important that we teach our children how they should behave in order to achieve their goals. Goals for instance, like educational ones. We teach them by means of our actions and by what we say to them.
- Show children how to use time for study by carving out time in the day for you to study. If not study, at least time to do some reading or researching something.
- Help them with a time table. Show them how to make a simple timetable for periods when they are at home. In this way they will see that their day can be a productive one. They will start experiencing less boring days and more creative, exciting ones.
- Talk to them about making a journal of what they have accomplished over a period of time. For instance over the course of one day or a week.
Social learning is so important to children. So if you are a parent or guardian, use this time of learning to assist the child to make positive changes in their life and feel a sense of accomplishment.
