Helping Your Child to Stay on Track to Reach Their Goals

With children well on their way to the midpoint of the school year, it can become difficult to keep focus and maintain the motivation they had during the start of the school year. This lack of interest can often lead to poor grades. To help you keep your child on track for the remainder of the school year, below are some ideas from The Tutoring Center, Humble to consider.

Check in on Their Goals

Even if they didn’t speak with you about them, it’s likely that your child has some goals which they set either before the school year started or during the first few weeks under their teacher’s instruction. Make some time to sit down and have a conversation with your student about the goals they have and how likely they are to achieve them. During this talk, it could come about that your child isn’t tracking so well and not likely to meet their goals at their current rate. However, be sure that this doesn’t end with them telling you that they aren’t going to reach it, so why bother? Instead, work with them to make adjustments to their routine or their methods to help get them back on track. Something as small as rearranging their social schedule or homework sessions could be the difference between reaching a goal and falling short.

New Goals

If your child can show you that they are working well towards reaching their goals, don’t be afraid to introduce new ones. Of course, be sure that any new goal you both introduce won’t make it less likely for them to achieve their primary ones. Complementary goals such as reading an extra book throughout the remainder of the year or even learning the basics of a new language are great starts.

Make It Interesting

It’s important that your child doesn’t feel like they are being bribed to complete their goals. Instead, look for appropriate ways to make their learning more interesting. As an example, if your child is struggling with their history-based goal, offer to take them to a museum to help boost their interest. Similarly, if your student is studying a part of history and you know of a movie which is set during the same period, choose this for your next family movie night.
