Do you notice that your kid likes listening to music while doing his homework or he will be jumping around while you are teaching him? It may feel like he is driving you crazy, but this is the age where your child is developing his own learning style.
What you need to know
You may want to have your child sit and study in a quiet manner but your child may be thinking otherwise. For him sitting in one place for long time is boring and he would like to move around while talking or listening. He may also like to do actually whatever he is learning. Another style of learning could be that your child is a visual learner. He remembers best when he is able to see and visualize his concepts. He may also like audio learning. Here your child benefits or learns more by listening aloud or talking aloud about his concepts.
Find out what kind of learning style works best for your kid. You can try variety of approaches to help him learn his concepts. Although you may feel like sticking to one, do keep in mind that your child’s way of learning may change as he grows up. Being aware of this will avoid homework hassles and will help you to bond with your child better.
