3 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Your Child
Knowing These 3 Things Can Help You Bring Out The Best in Your Child
We have worked with many parents who thought they know so much about their children but after attending our seminars, they realized so many things they didn’t know about their children.
As parents, we definitely have more experience than our children. We have lived in this part of existence than them. In this discourse, I want to share with you three things we noticed most parents don’t know about their children. If many parents know these things about their children, they will be more capable of helping their children.
What Are These Three Things?
1. Your Child is Extremely Hardworking
I know this might be difficult for some parents to accept, nonetheless, it remains the fact. Let me restate it:
Your child is extremely hardworking; they are very focused, never lazy and are actually super motivated!
Whenever we are doing what we find enjoyable, we all usually focus all our attention on it.
For most kids, this statement is true whenever they are playing games, using their phones or simply doing anything that they enjoy.
We have met many kids that have ignored nature calls like going to the toilet, feeling tired, or feeling hungry simply because they were doing what they enjoyed.
The key to tapping into your child’s focus is simply to allow them to enjoy what they do – PROCESS.
As it is now, many kids find learning or studying to be a chore, they hate it because they don’t usually enjoy the process.
Now, I want you to imagine the commitment they will put into their studies if we can teach them strategies to help them enjoy the process of learning. How committed do you think your child will be to his studies if you can show him or her strategies that turns learning to cartoon or computer games. and help them discover that they are more than capable of achieving great results.
When you are able to help them enjoy learning the way they enjoy their favourite TV show, you will never need to nag about their studies again, they will want to study on their own without being told. And when they begin to get good grades, they will feel good about themselves, they will continue to work hard to achieve more!
But it all starts with helping them find the strategies required to help them enjoy the process of learning. This is what I specialize in. I teach a totally different approach to learning that turns learning into fun and something every child wants to do. The strategies I used are what I have packaged for you in my Learning Mastery Bundle.
In the bundle, there is a book titled, The Making of a Distinction Student, your child can discover the effective learning strategies that turn learning into something they will enjoy doing.
2. Your Child Wants to Score ‘A’s in School Too
Believe it or not, when your child does not do well in school, they get equally depressed too. But most times, parents ignore their children depressed feelings as if it doesn’t matter to them.
When this happens for some time, the children get used to poor performance and become unperturbed with poor report cards.
The fact that they feel bad when they didn’t do well in their exams is an indication that they also desire to do well. What our children need at those periods is not castigation or condemnation: what they need are your support and help.
Imagine if we are able to acknowledge their bad feelings about their failures to make us proud. Imagine if we can equip them with the strategies to do well in school. The truth is that most kids want to do well in school. The problem is that they have no idea how to go about it. This is what God has committed to my hands and I have been able to teach many parents.
Growing up, our teachers want us to be serious with our studies. Back at home, our parents will mount pressure on us to study hard. But the study methods we were expected to use were boring and ineffective. We needed a better way to learn but no one ever taught us how to learn or how to study?
See, every kid grows up to discover the learning strategy that best suits him or her. It is extremely crucial that parents and teachers begin to recognize this simple fact and start exposing kids to learning strategies before forcing any more subject syllabus down their throat.
3. Your Child Loves You and Wants to be Closer
As kids grow up and parents grow older, does the relationship grow closer or apart?
Every holiday, a great number of parents send their kids to our Holiday Program in the hope to help them build the right attitudes.
Many of these children told us in confidence that they don’t like their parents because they (the parents) nag too much.
For us, this is clearly a communication problem. We know that behind every parent’s nagging there is a good intention.
Let’s face it, some parents do not know the effective ways to communicate, to take initiative, and to start a conversation. For the amount of time that we spend communicating in our lives, many would believe that we ought to be very good at it. Yet, that is far from the truth.
Communication is both an art and a science. If we want to foster our family relationships, there are numerous frameworks out there for us to learn from and get better at communication from asking the right questions to including appropriate gestures.
When everyone plays a part in the family to make an effort and learn to communicate better, relationships will grow closer as the years go by. There are always two sides to a coin; we choose what we want to see and believe in life. Great parents (like great leaders) are people who can see the best in their kids and help direct them and inspire them to achieve more.
