Do your kids think learning is boring? Do you feel like your kids aren’t learning much? Or do you just want to add a little fun into learning? Look at how your school is teaching your kids or at how your teaching your kids.
Would you want to learn this way?
Think about it. If you were your kids age, would you want to do worksheets and flashcards? Even now, do you want to be doing worksheets or flashcards or is just something you did to learn? Do you like sitting there having someone tell you that you have to learn all day? Would you want to do the same thing everyday or would you like a variety?
In my time working with kids, I have heard too many of them ask me “why learning can’t be fun?” Or “why isn’t learning fun like games?” Or “this is so boring!”. So at the younger ages why isn’t learning fun? Why isn’t it something we want to do?
Learning can be fun! Especially at the younger ages! If it’s not something your kids want to do they get bored and they don’t really pay attention or they act out. So why not make learning something your kids want to do. Make it something they chose to do instead of something they are forced to do. They will learn twice as quick and get more out of it!
Stop forcing your kids to learn and make it something they want to do. A good rule of thumb is if you don’t want to do it they probably don’t want to either.
There is always another way. If you are ever struggling to teach something to your kids send me a message and I will create a fun way for you to teach it to them.
