Encouraging Children to Perform Well in School
Encouraging Children to Perform Well in School
By studying and doing homework, children’s learnings in school are reinforced at home. Your little one brings the lessons at home and relearns them. Home learning can simply be rereading their notes, doing the homework, reading lessons in advance, or applying them at home.
What is the Indonesian maid’s or Filipino maid’s role in the child’s education and academic performance? The live-in maid in Singapore typically prepares the children for school every morning. She makes sure the child has taken a bath, is well-groomed, and well-fed before he gets on the school bus. Sometimes, employers would let the Indo maid or Filipino maid stay with the child at school then fetch him from school. The live-in maid’s primary role is to ensure the child’s basic needs so he can function well in school.
But how are they going to encourage the student to perform well academically? Is she capable of helping the child with her homework? Here are things the Filipino maid/Indonsian maid can do to encourage the child’s home learning:
Involve the child’s family
The family is the child’s number one model at home. When he’s at home, he just wants to do whatever most of the family is doing. When the child’s older siblings are watching TV instead of doing their homework, chances are your little one doesn’t want to sit down and do his homework too. Inform the extended family about the child’s performance at school and ask help from them in encouraging the child to do well.
Limit the child’s TV time
We’re aware of how much TV time interrupts the child’s home learning. If we want the child to finish his/ her assignments for the day, the Filipino maid/Indo maid should set a strict TV time and homework time. For much effective learning, the study table should be away from the TV set and must be free from any other distractions.
Ask about what he’s learning in school.
While we need to know how are the children doing in school, the Filipino maid or Indonesian maid must make sure to ask the right questions. Parents and live-in maids should avoid asking about the child’s grades or marks. Instead, we should ask him/her what is he or she is learning in school! Sadly, marks and grades can be teacher factor or school factor, but when we ask about his/her learnings in school, we discover the child’s newly-found ideas and knowledge. Grades can be deceiving sometimes. If learner earns high grades, we have to make sure his/her learnings are increasing too!
Children play so let them.
Don’t pressure the child too much especially when he’s just 6. Famous psychologists like Jean Piaget believes that kids these age adepts at using symbols by playing and pretending. Role-playing and having fun is a crucial part of their growth. They discover themselves and develop their language as they interact with children around them. The Filipino maid or Indonesian maid should not prohibit playing, but ensure the child is safe by looking after him/her closely.
Encourage the child always.
Sometimes, we disregard the fact that the child needed affirmation and encouragement. Even at a very young age, they need to hear that someone believes in them! The Filipino maid or Indonesian maid plays this crucial role during the child’s school days. Make sure the live-in maid comforts the child if he/she had a terrible day at school, nervous for a recital, or just simply tired.
Change his attitude towards school.
The Filipino maid or Indonesian maid can make the child feel that learning is important by constantly asking what their day in school feels like. Most children, when stressed out, has a very negative outlook towards school and studying. The live-in maid must always remind them that learning is necessary not just to find a nice job but to equip them for the life problems ahead. If parents can, they may find ways to get involved in the children’s school.
Make sure your child does homework
Check the child’s homework every night. The Filipino maid/Indonesian maid must make sure she hadn’t missed any before going to sleep. If possible, she must be kept away from the computer, tablets, and other gadgets to avoid distraction. At a young age, cultivate a sense of responsibility in the child by ensuring that he/she has completed a homework.
