“Parents are the main influence on learning, but the pressures are great.”
Many children are learning at home. Whether it’s because of the ongoing health crisis or you simply want your children homeschooled, supporting them is challenging. But, no matter how difficult it may be, you can use their time at home as an opportunity for them to learn through play and curiosity.
Here are some tips that can help you support your children who are learning at home:
- Designate a suitable learning space where your child can do distance learning and online classes away from distractions. Decorate the room with your child that makes them feel welcome and comfortable.
- Make a daily schedule that your child can follow. Apart from the class schedule, include homework time, physical activities, snack time, and breaks.
- Prepare for rough days. Not all days will be perfect. There will always be frustrations and bad days. Prepare for these days by making a list of calming activities for your child and yourself. It also helps to get support from teachers, other parents, and your family.
