There may be many reasons why your child needs to work from home. It could be because of the current Pandemic, or maybe the reason is far more personal to you, or maybe they have a lot of catching up to do for the exams. Whatever the reason, you can help your child learn by being a great parent and supporting your child. Studying, especially alone, can be quite a boring and tiresome experience for your child. But, just because the teaching is being conducted over the web does not make it any less relevant. You can assist your child and help them see the benefits of concentrating, and you can keep an eye on them too, which is a bonus. You may even be able to sit in, off-camera, for extra support if your child is struggling with a specific subject. Anyway, here are some ideas to help you help your child learn online.
Be sure you ask as many questions as you can. This could be a fantastic way to help them retain information. Perhaps ask them what they are doing tomorrow or what they have done today. Work out how their routine works so you can work around it. Even if your kid is on the quiet side, try and get them to offer as much as they can. Ensure you discover if they are struggling with anything. This way you can find extra help, or even contact the teacher yourself.
Do not underestimate how important a regular sleep-wake cycle is, even if they are only home learning. It is no excuse to be up all night playing x-box. By making sure they are going to bed on time, you can be sure that they will have more energy and enthusiasm come the daytime. Having their brightest mindset can go a long way to achieving good results.
Remember, healthy eating is just as important as sleep. Ensure they are having a properly balanced diet and reduce their sugar intake too. Sugar can make children buzz then crash, which is hard for learning. So you want to cut the sugary sodas too. It can also lead to other health complications to boot. For some good food choices think, healthy juices for drink and nuts, eggs, and some yogurts as snacks for the kids, if they need some.
If your child is going to be learning from home, make sure they have all the tools for the job. Do not expect them to use a smartphone and get the same results as they would from a PC or laptop where they can easily see the lesson. They will need to plug in with earphones, and a camera is a good asset too, so the teacher can see them.l Also, you need good software. The LanSchool distance and hybrid learning software for K-12 is a great choice and can help them. Just because they are not going to school doesn’t mean they don’t need pens, pencils, calculators, protectors, etc., as well.
