Help your child learn

This article is full of tips that every parent can strive to do to help their child with learning. I write plenty about how reading to your child can make a huge difference, but there are more ways to help your child learn.

How does this help with reading?

This article and the others I have linked here further explain these tips. I have also noticed these practices to be true in my experience as a tutor. It was the student who had a variety experiences with loving care givers that made progress with learning and that were open to learning.

How could you help your child?

  1. Bring balance to your child’s day. Limit screen time, provide outdoor experiences and exercise.
  2. Make sure your child is well rested. “Sleep serves to reenergize the body’s cells, clear waste from the brain, and support learning and memory.”
  3. Do make time for play in your child’s schedule. I can’t stress enough the benefits of play for a child’s overall development.
  4. Take care of the basics. Give your child healthy food habits. Kids that eat well, learn well. I’ve seen this from early childhood to teens. Be a model for them by eating good greens and fruit daily.
  5. Learn together. If something makes your child curious, take a moment to take a closer look, Find a book on the topic, a museum exhibit, or an educational website.

Thanks for stopping by.

Peace.
