How to help children learn?
To help children to learn is to exercise day-to-day care of school Affairs: first to the house how the guys cope with the tasks, which are experiencing difficulties, which make mistakes, etc.
Many students with homework willingly make those lessons that are given to them easily, without much effort of thought. If such students do not have solved the problem with the move, they leave it and more to the task will not be returned. Why is it so? Here we need to specify not a very significant mistake that many parents in the upbringing of children: not instill in them such a valuable moral qualities as diligence. If the child is not accustomed to labor, the first failure in academic work cause unpleasant experiences, which are then transferred to the unwillingness to learn. The latter leads to failure and underachieving children for a long time lose interest in learning, to the acquisition of knowledge. So the first day of study it is necessary to accustom the child to intellectual work, to monitor the fulfilment of homework, to help overcome the difficulties.
The speech of parents in the family serves as a model for children not only in the preschool period, but in high school. Guys listen to every word the adults and use them in your speech as you hear from others. Parents should monitor their speech and to achieve the correct pronunciation of each word. You should promptly correct errors in the speech of children, to make them comments.
Providing children help in homework, parents it is useful to know the properties of the memory of the child. The memory of children and adults is stronger and easier to digest any material in the evening, shortly before bedtime. Even when child sleeps, and no working mood he does not, he still at this time better than in the morning, remembers any material for mechanical memory verses, dates, rules, formulas, foreign words, etc. Many experiments have proved that foreign words, verses the majority of the subjects memorized the night stronger than the same material memorized in the morning. All lessons where necessary the work of thinking, savvy (solving math problems, writing essays, solving problems in physics, chemistry), it is better to do a fresh mind in the morning or after a short rest in the afternoon.
Some parents complain that it is not able to help children to learn due to the fact that they themselves are not adequately trained or because of work commitments. Indeed, not all parents can provide instructional assistance to their children, especially high school students. Nevertheless, their everyday attention for children, interest in school life of the child is given positive results. Regularly reviewing the diary helps to be aware of progress of the student, his discipline. In turn, the children, knowing that their training activities are being watched, try to learn better.
One form of control is to view the notebooks and verification of written assignments. Set on a diary that you set on the house, browse books and find out whether that resolves mathematical problem, you have performed the exercises in language, whether written essay, all parents, regardless of education and employment at work. The mother or father can check and oral lessons student: to listen, as he retells the content of the paragraph, test, learned, whether a poem, does foreign words.
How often should I check homework? It depends on the good faith of the disciple. If he always performs tasks (and parents sure), then the control can be selective. If a child regularly preparing for the lessons, deceives parents and teachers, we need to check it more often.
When assisting the student in homework parents should know that the main thing is to teach the child to overcome difficulties in learning and to constantly improve the skills of independent work.
Can parents help their son or daughter in the organization of the mental self. What are the psychological and pedagogical conditions tend to encourage this process? How to create a family of optimal conditions for mental self?
Teen age is the age of knowledge, deepening and comparing yourself with others, especially with peers.
Mental capabilities, the abilities of the teenager and its physiological data are organically linked. The brain, the nervous system is the material basis of mental, mental activity. On the one hand, everything that happens in the body, is reflected in the brain. On the other hand, the brain regulates all bodily functions. Therefore, it is important for parents to know: anything that strengthens a child’s physical health, simultaneously heals his mental state.
However, good physical health is only the basis for effective work of a teenager. Crucial subjective factors – the willingness to engage in an active process of mental activity, the desire to exert effort when meeting with difficulties in learning.
Self-organization of mental activity must precede the organization of a parents mental work of a teenager. Parental control over the adherence to the training activities of a teenager, the procedure for the preparation of lessons (over easy, hard and light again) helps build up the necessary habits mental labor.
The main task of parents is to ensure that control has passed to self-control, and education in self-education. Note that self-education is a purely individual activity of the individual. Annoying control, excessive interference can destroy something that is not yet consolidated. Tactful requirements, advice and approval of the results of the work are major mental stimulators of self-education.
Knowing individual psychological abilities of your son or daughter, parents can participate in the programme (memo) mental self-development.
Approximate program of mental education:
Regularly complete the homework assignment for all subjects.
Allocate your time wisely: no hours wasted.
To analyze and compare the read books, the movies.
To read psychological literature on the development of memory, attention, thinking.
In conversation with the teen parents can tell that he took was underestimated or overestimated obligations.
The ultimate goal of mental adolescents self – knowledge of the major intellectual techniques: analysis, comparison, generalization, rational methods of memorizing. It should be noted that the mental development of a teenager and involves the improvement of its language and culture.
Observations show that the culture of language in our Teens often leaves much to be desired.
Who knows how the child asks his father or mother: “Listen to me”! And often hears: “headlines” or “Go tell grandpa, grandma, etc.”. The child needs an attentive listener, otherwise it will die a storyteller. Not to interrupt the stories of a son or daughter and encourage them – that’s one of the ways the mental and emotional-aesthetic education and self-education.
It is useful to encourage people to make copies of the books they read. This is an effective method of mind development, memory, attention.
Of course, pedagogical recommendations are not magical powers. They benefit in the event, helping to strengthen habits of adolescents for intellectual labor and creativity. Not to be blamed for poor results, and to encourage and strengthen the faith of a teenager in themselves, to create situations for success in learning – that’s enabling environment, developing the need for mental self-development.
