How your child performs at school can impact their whole lives. If they get the grades they want, they will be able to go on to the colleague and university that they want to and study at. Then eventually, they will be able to get the job of their dreams. So, as a conscientious parent, you will be wondering how you can help your child achieve academic success. Luckily there are many things you can do this, and this blog highlights a few ways to help your child’s academic performance:
Fuel them Properly
If you send your child to school having eaten the wrong foods and not giving them a proper nutritious lunch, they are not going to have the attention span they need to succeed. A nutritious breakfast will set them up for the day and ensure they have the energy they need. Various studies have been conducted and have found that children who eat a proper breakfast performed better in their tests. So, it is in your best interest to buy the right foods and make the right lunches too.
Support their Homework
Children may not always be inclined to do their homework, but it is a great way to enhance their learning and help them develop self-discipline and responsibility. So, ensure you find out what homework they have and play an active role in their doing it. Perhaps you could sit them in the kitchen while you are there so you can monitor and motivate them, and they can ask you questions when possible. It may be fun for you to try to discover the answers. Once they have finished, you can review theory work, and remember if you are particularly impressed, you can always reward them with something, like an extra special dessert after your evening dinner.
Being unorganised can be very detrimental to a child’s academic performance. If they don’t know what lesson they have coming up, or easily forget things like homework due dates, or even have a messy room and can never find what they need to find. Al this can slow them down. So, lead by example, show them the benefits of being organised and how it can relieve them from stress and unneeded pressure. Check their folders and know what they have coming up so you can see if they are beginning to become more organised. Perhaps you can help then create a to-do list and start ticking these items off.
