How to motivate your child when they want to quit?
We are now coming into our 9th week of lockdown in NSW, Australia and no doubt many of us are feeling the pinch. Some days will be better than others, but one thing is for sure, keeping your child motivated with home learning while you juggle your full time job with house hold duties can be tough. Here are some quick tips from a build your child's frustration tolerance masterclass that could help keep your child motivated.
1. Show how far they have already come.
You could say: "Look how many new skills you learned to get to where you are now!" or "Think back to a month ago when we started learning from home, you didn't know how to do any of these things and now you can."
2. Give them space an time.
"Let's pause and talk. What are the reasons you want to quit?" "Why did you want to do the activity in the first place?"
3. Teach patience and self-compassion.
"I know you're feeling discouraged. Remember that your brain needs some time to learn new things." "I see is this frustrating for you. What can I do to help you feel better?"
