main demotivators in teaching children

  • The natural desire for knowledge in a child is very easy to discourage. For example, a child wants to speak out, but the teacher does not allow him to do so. They say, shut up, there is no time to talk. Or, when parents do not seriously answer questions of concern to children. After several "empty" answers, the child will no longer ask anything, his gaze will become indifferent.

    The main demotivators in the learning and development of children need to be known by sight, and understand how you can reduce their importance or even remove them from the life of your family. Svetlana Zaluzhnaya, director and co-author of DEC life school, identified 10 main "enemies" of motivation in children, and tells how you can neutralize each of them.

    Demotivator 1. An oversaturated educational program and a child's lack of freedom of choice
    I often come across the belief of parents that the tighter the schedule of a child's activities in and out of school, the more efficiently they spend their time. In fact, children, both younger and older school age, need free time, because this is their time for self-development. Living with a tight schedule and a very busy educational program is a sure way to lose creativity, independence and interest in finding new things in a child. He loses a request for something that may be of interest to him, since the request appears when there is a shortage of activities, and not when there is an excess of them.

    In the life of an adult, there are “must” and “want”, and by balancing these areas of life, the adult feels comfortable. Our children often live in a "must" mode, they have no choice, little time for "want". And being able to make choices for a child is a very important element of growing up and developing.
