Is Your Child Learning Nothing?

You send your child to school and the teachers teach them. If that is what you think, you could be way wrong !

While most teachers are good at presenting information to a class, learning happens ONLY if kids actually want to learn. Teachers may have little time for individual work, and you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink. And in many schoolrooms today a majority of the class see learning as not cool, with kids trying hard to not learn !

You may think that the school will tell you if your child is not learning, but you will probably be way wrong there. School funding generally depends on the school saying how good they are at teaching children, so often they will say that all kids are doing fine even when many are learning nothing. You may think that school inspectors will ensure that kids are learning well, but NO their job is only to ensure that teachers are teaching well.

So is your child learning nothing ? Well many parents today find out by setting their children their own school tests - as by using Math Sheets that come with the answers. It can be made an easy fun 5-minute daily game "let's play our 'my school test' game".

Not only will you then know that your child is learning, but you should find that you showing a little regular interest in their learning will increase their learning motivation strongly. You can stick to maths sheets only, or can vary your mini-school-test to science or other subjects using questions from their schoolbooks. Just keep it brief so it does not become a chore for them.

If you show a little regular interest in your child's learning then they will want to learn, and will not follow anti-learning classmates.

Then when the school says that your child is doing fine, it will happen to actually be the truth!
