Experiences teach your child
You can help your child to feel that learning is important and satisfying. You can build on their natural urge to explore to grow and develop new skills.
As a child they likes to be busy and enjoys an increasing sense of strength and independence as they learns to read. These skills help him master himself and his widening world.
Understand your child’s world
The more you knows of his world, the more he is apt to want to learn about it. You can lead him on treasure hunts for new experiences. This hunt might sometimes go no further than your own living room where you will sit down and read him a story.
As he gets a little order, he can begin to read to you. Children who have experiences like this at home almost always do better work in school than those who don’t even if you can read together only ten minutes a day, it is likely to make a big difference in his feelings about books and learning.
Not all treasure hunts for knowledge lie in books. One 9 year old girl and her father sat in yard on on a summer evening. She asked, and he answered. About the bigger dipper and the milky way, the half moon that world soon be, what I wonder is how can there be so much to wonder about.
Family excursions keep your child’s sense of wonder alive. There are strips to stores, public bindings, the countryside, and other towns. All of this adds to your child’s knowledge and desire for more.
Child learns from talking and listening. One reason, most youngsters between 6 to 12 are so eager audience is that they want to practice the new words they are constantly learning.
Most of them love riddles, chants, and jokes. They tell long, complicated stories that are partly fact and partly dreams and wishes. Most of them love to hear you tell stories too.
When you were little or about once upon a time.
Family talk has many values. Talking and listening add to your child’s sense of self confidence through home conversation, he build up his power to understand and use words. This power is vital to his success in school.
Time out for resting
Your child have too many rich experiences just as he can get too much rich food. Some youngsters feel that their minds cannot digest all their parents offer. Some feel that they can never live up to what their parents expect. They sometimes lose self-confidence, and may become afraid, worried, or angry when this happens, learning problems may develop, so try to set standards your child can reach.
Show your child you are interested and proud
Although your young student will learn how to learn partly by imitating you, he also wants some direct help. Listen to his stories of life at school and look at his papers. It is a good idea to play up what he has done well and play down what isn’t so good.
