Top Five Tips to Help Your Kids Learn Good Study Habits

Once the glittering newness of going back to school disappears, parents and students understand that it’s time to get back to business. For students, particularly those heading to junior high or high school, the workloads get heavier, study and homework tasks become more laborious, and standing at the front of the competition becomes a big challenge.

Many parents ask, “What is the mystery behind the grade A?” They take advice from leading consultants, hire top-quality teachers, and do everything that can help them plant the seed of study habits in their child. However, hardly a few of them can actually achieve this aim.

Here we have created a list of some excellent study habits for your kid to help set them up for a productive school year ahead.

Tip #1: A Planner Strategy

In between extracurricular activities, homework assignments, and examinations, it’s so natural for things to fall through the cracks. The best way to save your kid from falling is to teach him/her how to be organized. A planner keeps your child well-organized.

Your child must categorize and write down work distribution in the planner, for example, homework, meetings, to-do lists, etc. Besides, they must review all items in this planner at both the start and end of the day. This strategy helps your child stay on track.

Initially, you can allow your child to use a piece of paper or diary to record their daily activities. After a couple of months, you can switch to a preferred planner mobile app.

Tip #2: Keep Real Expectations; No Surprises

Many parents have huge expectations of their kids. Remember, keeping unrealistic expectations doesn’t bring any change to reality; in fact, it makes your child feel shocked. Thus, be genuine and transparent when it comes to what and how they will be rated.

Keep regular and soft communication with your kid. Speak about the scope to improve, things that need to be changed, etc. It brings enormous confidence to your child.

Tip #3: Create a Study Plan

Your child must know the dates of future exams and the chapters that will be included in the exam. For this, inform your child to pay proper attention to what their teachers say. From there, you can create a good study plan. For example, allotting a new subject to each day of the week, extra practice on tough subjects at the end of the week, etc.

There’s nothing as bad as studying the night before an exam. Thus, creating a study plan on the very first day of school gives your child ample time to prepare for the exams. You can ask your child’s teacher for help, but the lack of support for these basic things is often one of the ways the teacher shortage impacts students. Your child’s education should be a partnership between you and the teacher. When this is missing, progress can be compromised.

Tip #4: Design a Study Place 

Studying at the neighborhood coffee shop might sound like a good thought, but not if it is crowded or filled with other disturbances. Thus, find a little space in the home and make minor (or major) changes until it becomes a study room. If there is a TV beside that room, then it may not be a perfect place.

Try to fill this room with the required study materials and supplies to create a study environment.

Tip #5: Think Positively

It can be the most prominent lesson for your child. It will help your child throughout his or her life. Being in the correct state of mind can make all the difference.

Develop a sense of positivity in your child. Encourage them to reflect optimistically on troublesome situations. And of course, tell them how catastrophic thinking could bring their lives into negativity.

Starting a new school year can be stimulating at first; however, nurturing good habits right from the beginning can help you and your kid quickly connect to new routines and expectations.
