There are so many factors that determine how successful each individual will be. Some can be influenced by us and the and the opportunities around us while others are totally beyond our control.
Hence, why this is a no catch-all guide that gives you 100% assurance of your child’s future success, but more of stepping stones and foundations that must be established and kept constant.
According to experts, here are a few ways to help your kid find that path to success both in and out of school premises.
1. Ensure they get enough sleep daily
For Children, sleep is one of the most important activities in their day-to-day lives. This goes beyond just the amount of sleep hours they get but also the consistency of their sleep schedule factors into their success. Did you know? Regular naps, for instance, are important for your toddler’s ability to learn, process and apply new language concepts in an abstract way.
2. Build support systems
A support system comprises individuals who provide support, respect, and care. These are people who are in your corner, who truly understand you and communicate with you in the language you understand. They do not judge you or ridicule you. They provide feedback that is genuine, constructive and in your best interest. You need support systems both at home and in your child’s school.
3. Scrutinize their screen time thoroughly
TV, Phones, Tabs and other media channels that children engage in are not evil as we like to paint them. In fact, they can be great learning channels for kids if used properly. Opt for shows and programs that can help them grow and learn new things, develop their vocabulary, enhance their problem solving skills and so on.
4. Build routines and set expectations
Building routines and setting expectations for children to follow will help them to understand the benefits of time management and consistency. It helps them to understand the concept of working towards goals, achieving them and receiving rewards for the work they put in. Life successes and dream realization takes time, hard work, consistency and dedication.
5. Learning through play
Play is work for children. Parents need to take play seriously. Children learn and build important life skills when they play. For instance, Make-believe play encourages their creativity as they have to create the whole image of their make-believe character or friend. What does he or she look like? What does he or she like?
