The end of every school year marks the start to a fresh beginning with tons of things for your children to be excited for. Often, it encompasses seeing familiar faces like their friends and teachers or sharing stories with each other about their fun-filled holidays. But more importantly, the new school year is exciting for many because it presents an opportunity to start afresh – more so if any child feels like they have not reached their full potential in the past year. Some children, on the other hand, may experience indifference towards another year at school. In such a case, parents – such as yourself – can play a significant part in cultivating a sense of excitement and give them that extra push to be motivated to kickstart the new term.
Indulge a little together with some food and entertainment
One of the easiest ways to get your children all hyped up for the new school year is by planning something exciting for them. Whether it’s something simple like a sumptuous meal together, or something more extravagant like a weekend getaway, an activity that engages everyone and deviates from the usual sedentary lifestyle is sure to be something for your children to look forward to.
Fork out some money on new school supplies for your children
Remember the last time you spent a little extra on new stationery or a new bag as a child, and absolutely could not wait to start using them? The same goes for many students out there! Even the smallest new purchase of school necessities can do wonders to get your child all fired up for school to begin so that they can use it to its fullest. You can build even more excitement by getting your children to select items of their choice. Not only is this a great way to understand them better, but it may also be a good opportunity to teach them good spending habits during the shopping process.
New year, new goals, new attitude
And when your efforts to get your children charged up for the new school year seems to be in vain, it is important that you do not give up and try to find the underlying reason. Indifference, or even dread, may be a result of a child’s experience with obstacles and academic difficulties during the year. Show your support for them, and spend the holidays lending them a listening ear while also encouraging them along the way. Less than ideal results are not good indicators of any child not doing well in the future. Rather, it could be a motivator to do even better and excel at the subject.
Here is something you can do: during the holidays, set short-term goals for them and work with them to achieve it together. By working towards these mini goals and showing them how much they can accomplish during the short two-month holiday period, you are showing your children how it is possible, and that persistence can go a long way.
Give your child a head start
But what new goals can parents set, you may ask? Often, parents set small goals that tie in their children’s academic performance at school, just so that they can have a head start to the syllabus and topics to be covered in the coming year. One such benefit of doing this is that it helps make it easier for children to follow the lessons during class. Additionally, kids will also feel empowered and filled with a sense of pride when being able to help their fellow classmates who are trailing behind. Undeniably, the feeling of being depended on is a good motivator for any child to look forward to school.
