Tips to help motivate your child

Tips to help motivate your child:
Link school lessons to your child's life. If he's learning percentages, ask him to figure out the price of a discounted item next time you shop.
Link your child's interests to academics. If he's passionate about music, give him books about musicians and show how music and foreign languages are connected.
Give your child control and choices. With guidance, let him determine his study hours, organizing system or school project topics.
Encourage your child to share his expertise. Regularly ask him about what he's learning in school.
Congratulate your child, encourage him and celebrate all his successes.
Often what holds children back from trying is the fear of failure or the memory of a time they didn't do well. You can help break this cycle by celebrating your child's successes, no matter how small, and by giving him opportunities to succeed academically.
