To date, quality education has become one of the important points in the development of a social individual. But no one is born with good academic skills. So some students need more attention and guidance in order to better understand the school material.

One of the important factors is the parental attitude to a child's education, especially if he does not cope with the curriculum, but his relatives expect good results from him. In such a case, a student cannot do without their help.

How to help a child to learn well?
When adults allocate time to help their kid, it has a more effective impact on his academic performance than the quality of the educational institution or his own abilities. Do not forget that each student is unique and requires special attention not only from teachers, but also from his mom and dad.

A warm relationship between the young people and adults plays an important role in the learning process. Up to a certain age (approximately 10-12 years), a child takes into account the interests of the parents. If he has to do something, where it is necessary to show will, he does it for the adults, and therefore, regards the education as something that will make the parents happy. A child plays, eats sweets, watches cartoons for himself. Therefore, it is worth considering the fact that, up to a certain age, a pupil does not think that he needs to learn for himself and his future.
Any organizational process in the study of kids should be formed correctly and, at the same time, without violating their personal habits.

Individual characteristics should be taken into account. After all, if parents ignore the usual schedule of their child and begin to worry only about its educational side, they may face a resistance in cooperation. In this case, it will be considerably more difficult to develop the training potential.
It is worth remembering that the main things in helping a child to learn well are: to stick to the plan, to give due attention, communication, mild control, mutual respect, and complicity.

Communication with the child
Communication is of fundamental importance for the development of students. They need to understand and to be understood. It is the basis of relationships which affects learning, playing, social interaction. If the parent reacts to the child's signals since birth, he develops a reliable attachment to himself. This connection is an important condition of the development and learning of the young person.

For a long time, the most important activity in the life of a child is the educational process. Communication directly affects this area. If a pupil comes from a school in a clearly bad mood, parents should try to talk with him heart to heart. Perhaps, he has quarreled with friends or was punished by a teacher for some fault.

Such troubles can kill the desire to attend school, and the child's progress will be seriously shaken. A sincere conversation can be the best way to overcome the difficulties of this kind. A kid should not be afraid or embarrassed to talk to his parents. It is important for him to understand that the problem can be solved only by discussing it.

It is known that the underdeveloped vocabulary of children directly affects the literacy skills. Without external assistance, 50-90% of kids with unsatisfied communication needs subsequently have troubles with reading.




In order for a child to get used to more precise and clear statements, constantly involve him in a dialogue, find topics for discussion, tell something new and interesting, discuss stories from life and even something from the scientific area. For example, you can tell about a historical event or a scientific discovery. The main thing is to do it emotionally. Then the child will be interested and, under a strong impression, will remember what he was discussing with the parent.

Control over the performance of homework
During the study, children have to learn a lot of information. And one of the compulsory daily tasks is doing homework, owing to which the knowledge remains in the student's memory. But it is not always easy for kids to perform academic assignments, especially if they were inattentive and did not fully understand the material during the lesson.

In this case, parents should help the child to comprehend new rules and definitions. Then he will be more confident and responsible. Moms and dads also should not forget that, in order for a kid to feel comfortable and do homework without stress, they should organize the appropriate conditions at home and maintain a positive moral atmosphere.

Psychologist's advice
The psychologist's recommendations are divided according to age categories. After all, tips_that suit first-graders are unlikely to benefit the high school students and vice versa.

1. Primary school children

Firstly, parents should prepare children morally for the academic life, save them from fear of getting acquainted with something new, be interested in their schooling, constantly ask about what they learned, how relations with the classmates develop.
You may help the child make friends with surrounding people. Involve them in some kind of event (like an excursion) or simply invite other kids to visit your house. Strengthen a child’s love for learning, his own will, responsibility, and independence. Remind him about discipline - what he should do and what should not.

2. Secondary school students

Psychologists recommend parents to simplify the learning process by creating the appropriate conditions. Support the child emotionally, listen to him and help, try not to conflict and not to shout. Be strict, but show kindness when it is necessary. Share knowledge in some areas that could interest the child and enrich his horizons. Regularly follow the schedule of academic activities and help in organizing the student's free time.

3. High school students
Senior students need freedom. Give your child more will so that he can move in the chosen direction. Help him in learning, recommend the preparatory and additional courses, a good essay writing service (like Pro-Papers).

Communicate, talk about your own experience and life at a high school. Give advice about relationships with classmates, teachers, and friends. Do not judge and react aggressively to any situation.

Parents should always remain the people to whom students can come for help. Maintain interest in further training. Help in choosing a profession by giving an assessment from outside, but without imposing your views. Whatever happens, believe in your child.
