As parents, You don’t have any reason to give up on your dull child, there is always a way out for every problem
Sometimes the child’s problem is psychological.
Well, I’m a school teacher and I did NCE, and I’m a lover of psychology, which was my best education subject back in school.
The issue of psychology often arises from home and upbringing: the enviroment, the peer-group, parental attention, Parental relationship with a child (Cordial or hostile) All these affect a child’s learning.
We all grow up and accept any enviroment we find ourselves. If a child grows up in enviroment where the inhabitants are well cultured, there is possibility that a child would follow suit.
If a child mingles with brilliant minds who challenges each other academically, there is possibility that the child would be competitive which would stimulate learning ability. As parents, you need to monitor the kind of friends your child plays with.
As parents, if you don’t create time for your child, it would affect her learning. Ask them to bring out their books to do their assignment and ask them questions on what they have learnt. That is, if the parent is learned.
Parental relationship with child (Cordial or hostile)
It is good to scold a child. But parents overdo this. When a parent is too harsh on a child, the child is affected in many ways. A child might have constant memory loss due to shouting on them everytime or beating them for every single thing. The panic even affects a child in school, a child in perpetual fear would not have a mental relaxation to retain knowledge or academic instructions. There are other ways you can correct a child, not yelling at them every time. Yelling even does more harm than beating.
