Some parents complain about children. They claim that children are not motivated, not interested in studies, don’t spend sufficient time doing homework, etc. Other parents are proud that their children are shining. They want to make them do even better. What parents often fail to realize, is that their own parents may have said the same about them too! Education is evolving as generations pass. The methodology used for one generation, may not be effective for another. If you want your child to shine as a leader, read on!
1. CHILDREN CAN SOLVE PROBLEMS
The thinking patterns of a child are different from those of an adult. They are more inclined to suggest innovative solutions. For parents and teachers who struggle to persuade children to study, learner autonomy may be the solution. Give students ownership of their studies. Ask them what they think they should do to improve. Empower them to make a timetable and manage time. They may surprise you!
2. ENCOURAGE THEM TO USE THEIR PASSIONS FOR GOOD
Guiding children to optimize their passions and creativity to share positive messages or bring attention to issues they care about. Equip them with opportunities and resources to identify what their passions are.
3. ENJOY LEARNING EXPERIENCE
As children are caught up in the rat race of the competitive school environment, focusing heavily on exams, give them opportunities to bring out their unique talents and skills, enjoy their learning experience and shine as leaders.
