Children’s curiosity is a thirst for knowledge. Every child is born with an open mind, an exploratory spirit and unlimited potential. Depending on different factors, some children develop their potential earlier and to a greater extent, while others take longer. The role of parents and teachers is to support and encourage the development of children’s potential, but often the wrong approach can have a detrimental effect. An authoritarian attitude, the painful ambitions of parents, as well as a dramatic attitude towards low grades can crush any motivation and ambition in the child. They can crush the child himself.

Our little heroes are born dreamers, and if adults do not have unrealistic expectations, their dreams will be their best motivation to learn, to develop.

 What can parents do to motivate children to learn?

  • They can encourage curiosity
  • They can watch their child carefully discover their own talents and interests
  • They can support their dreams and interests
  • They can travel with their children more. Every new place and meeting new people enriches children, and stimulates their personal and intellectual development
  • They can create a high level of self-esteem and a positive attitude towards the world
  • They can talk frequently with their child about things in life
  • They can teach their children to emphasize and summarise when they are studying
  • They can show interest in school work, and discuss the lessons together
  • They should not force children to study for a long time
  • They should be tolerant and supportive of their grades.
  • They need to create a love for reading, and suggest interesting books
  • They should play educational games with their children, do crossword puzzles, watch educational television games together.
