How To Get Your Child Interested and Motivated
If you have a child that is struggling, unmotivated, or uninterested in school, or really in any specific aspect of their life, we have to make sure to inform them about a very special three letter word.
That three letter word is WHY.
If your child does not like something, then they do not understand the value of it. You have to explain to the child why you are putting the child through this. What is the value?
If you can get your child to see how valuable something is for their future, they will go from being uninterested, to being excited about it.
For example, there was a child that loved hockey. The child said he absolutely did not like math and did not want to do math. His teacher asked him to draw out all the shapes in hockey. The child drew all the different shapes, and when he was done the teacher explained that if he wanted to REALLY understand and excel in hockey, he has to know math. Then he automatically looked at his mom and said “I want to learn math.”
Sit down and explain the value of the subject or activity that the child is engaged in, and WHY they are doing it and see the transformation of your child’s view on that subject.
