When the school is already on the nose, older children have to sit behind the books. But they do not want! Then I came up with the option of exchanging education for entertainment. And it worked!
My eldest son this year is already in 4th grade. How fast time flies. Recently, it seems she took him to the first call, and 3 years have passed. But with the training we have problems – the boy does not want to engage.
At school, teachers can still force him, but at home this is a big problem. Every homework turns into torture, and for us parents too. This screams and scandals, and tears, and even torn notebooks.
And this is all during the school period, but what to say now, during the last summer days? Vacation ends, it’s time to start studying.
But as soon as I started talking about the multiplication table, the house shuddered at my son’s outrage. But what kind of mother I am if I can’t cope with a 10-year-old child? I decided to trick him and exchange his favorite bike for the multiplication table. And we agreed so – one mistake minus 10 minutes from the allotted hour of time to drive.
At first we went to minus. Andrei didn’t even have a couple of minutes left for entertainment. I understood, son, that you will not go against mother, and we concluded the world war.
And now a week in our kingdom of silence and tranquility. Every morning, the son gives me the multiplication table, reads and writes little dictations from the dictation. And in return, he gets his favorite bike and 2 hours of free time.
And the average boy doesn’t like the bike. He likes logic games. He has his favorite designer, puzzles and puzzles. So to him, I also found an approach. Now I change reading to the designer. One page – one detail.
Children laugh, they like this approach to classes. Tears and cries ceased in the house. Learning is perceived as a game that captures them and at the same time brings many benefits.
Why should children be forced to do what they do not want? Though I am not a teacher, but I understand that every child has its own key. If it is difficult for a teacher at school to cope with the students, since there are simply a lot of them for one teacher, then it is not an effort for me to cope with my children. Everything can be turned into pleasure, even the learning process.
Literally a week later, school starts, and my children’s mood is already vigorous. After all, not only need to buy a new backpack to school or school uniform, you need to psychologically adjust your child to the fact that there is another happy and informative school year ahead of him.
How do you force your children to study at home, or do you have no such problem?
