Parents know that going to school and having education is important to their kids. Kid’s response varies such that some are scared to go back to school and there are also those who are excited much to gather with their friends again. Most of the kids who hesitate and lost interests in going back to school are having problems socially or academically. However, a little encouragements will change can change the mood of the kids. So here I present in this article few tips and fun ideas on how to encourage and support your kid’s life in school.
1.) Have some family time.
I guess, this would be the best encouragement that will work in every kid going to school. One week before the kids will go back to school, although they are happy that they’ll going to see most of their good friends in school, they are also worried that they could have less time to spend with their family when they are back in school. So it’s better to have family activities such as picnics, going to mall and theme parks, etc. While having a family bonding, you can also share some words of encouragements to your kids and tell them that they should not worry and make a promise that you can also help them in anything that they need in school such as doing home works, assignments, etc. You must devote a little of your time to your kids even if you have your own full-time job. But be sure to keep your promises. Otherwise, your kids will become more pessimistic in going to school.
2.)Make home-made lunch with Encouragement Notes.
Sometimes, it is tough to make it through the whole school day. And by lunch, kids are so tired, which is why this is such a great time to give some encouragements to them. But how can you do this if you are not in school? Making artistic and creative lunch will do the trick. Varying the food you give everyday and making them look so cool in their lunch box will surely brightens their day and will take their weariness away. Plus, writing a lunch box notes of expressing your words of encouragements is something that kids do not get often or they never expect. A few words like “I love you, Good luck in School and Do your best!” can really help them turn a day around for the kids.
3.)Encourage them to share their life in school.
While having a dinner, it is already a tradition or somewhat like a routine in every household to talk and share some things that happen in the whole day. Then hearing you kids words and giving them advices will really help them a lot. Sometimes, kids hesitate to share some of their problems in school especially when it is related to their academic problems, peer issues, and love life concerns. So you parents are the one who should encourage them to tell you about the things and problems they are coping in school.
In the end, it is the parents who really know their kids best. If your kids need some sort of encouragements for them to go back to school, start by considering what it is that make them tick and more optimistic. Make sure that the ways you make to tap into such problems will also provide them self confidence and will boost their motivation that they needed most. BOLA TANGKAS
