I trust all parents know how true that statement is. Your children were not born knowing how best to study their school
lessons. I have heard parents yelling at their child because their grades were terrible. Then they would say to them,“You need to learn to study better “. Did they do that because they themselves do not know how to study in order to learn new things? It is likely their parents told them they needed to learn how to study better. We tend to pass on what and how our parents taught us.
As parents it is your responsibility to set a good example. If you were never taught how to study in order to remember what you have read or experienced, then it would be difficult to teach your children good study habits. You need to help your children developed good study habits. Even if you don’t know how to study, you need to sit down with your child and help them come up with new ideas for helping them learn and remember what they study. You can always find a tutor to teach study habits and subjects such as algebra.
For many of us we can read all day, but may not remember most of what we read. That’s why it’s important to help your child learn how to study in order to remember what they have studied. Since everyone is an individual, not every solution will be helpful with every child. It may take trial and error, probably more error than success. You and your child, together, must find what works best for them. The most important thing is don’t give up. The result will more than makeup for the time and work both of you have put in to learning good study habits.
A child that learns good study habits will grow into a well rounded adult. Good study habits will influence them for the rest of their life.
