Tricks on getting your kids excited about school.

The beginning of the school year can be a very nerve-racking and exciting time for both you and your kids. As time goes on and we get further into the cold season, school can start seeming like a chore and your kids might have a bleak outlook on heading off on the school bus each morning. How do you raise that excitement level again?

 

  1. Be a role model. As a parent, you are one of the most influential figures in a child’s life. When parents read a book or take an adult education class, they’re modeling that everyone continues to learn. In a kid, this helps to instill a positive idea on what learning means to them.
  2. Get them involved in activities they are interested in. Talk with your kids and find out what they are interested in learning more about in practical areas, such as soccer, chess or art, etc. Introduce them and have them get signed up for activities and clubs at the school having to do with their interests. Not only will this get them more involved in school, but will allow them to grow in many different areas and make new friends.
  3. Encourage meaningful relationships. When kids have great friends at school they are more inclined to get excited about waking up early and head out to school.
  4. Show an interest. Talk with your kids, go to their sports games as much as possible, and support them in their endeavors. This lets your kids know that you care, that you see when they are in need of help and that you acknowledge when they are doing well.
  5. Set the tone.

 

School doesn’t have to be an inevitably awful part of a kid’s life, it can be fun and it should be a place where they are leaning a lot, practically and academically. Try out these tips to get your kids more excited about attending school!
