Have you ever heard about a​ child whom parents or​ teachers describe as​ lazy, unenthusiastic, and​ non-interested in​ any school subject or​ social activity? if​ yes, have you ever thought why this child is​ so low motivated, when he or​ she needs to​ do something demanding assiduity, diligence, patience, attention, tenacity, self-control and​ other important personal qualities?

While growing up these children meet obstacles in​ real life and​ do not find enough will power, strength of​ mind to​ overcome life difficulties and​ achieve goals. This happens because in​ childhood and​ during adolescent period, when important aspects of​ self-regulation and​ self-control build up, these children did not learn to​ be patient, assiduous and​ purposeful.

That is​ the​ reason why it​ is​ very important to​ make the​ basis of​ your child’s motivation to​ success, self-control, and​ self-regulation in​ early childhood. Sometimes it​ is​ much easier for​ parents just to​ close their eyes to​ many things thus allowing their child to​ do anything he or​ she wants and​ have “peace” without listening to​ the​ child crying or​ demanding anything. But this is​ not a​ way out of​ the​ situation, because now your child is​ having only a​ small problem, but while the​ child is​ growing up problems will be becoming more complicated and​ solving them will be much more difficult.

How can you help your child be more motivated?

1. Be sure that you are ready and​ have enough patience to​ talk and​ explain your child many things even there could be some misunderstandings and​ communication difficulties.

2. Do not be afraid to​ be strict sometimes, but at​ the​ same time try to​ explain all your actions, be reasonable and​ appeal to​ consciousness of​ your child. (For example, if​ your child does not want to​ make homework in​ math, explain your him or​ her, that now the​ most important thing is​ not the​ homework, but how strong and​ self-controlled he or​ she is, and​ the​ ability of​ doing important things, which children do not want to​ do.)

3. Teach your child to​ avoid words such as​ “I want to​ do…” and​ “I don’t want to​ do…” substitute these word-combinations with “I need to​ do…” and​ “I don’t need to​ do…”Also do not tell your child, that he or​ she is​ “the smartest, most clever…” or​ “the best person” in​ any field. Because when a​ person says: “I am the​ best…” it​ is​ the​ signal for​ unconscious mechanisms to​ stop accept new information. “The best” person does not need to​ learn or​ know anything. Isn’t he or​ she “the best” already? Instead of​ that, say: “I’m good in​ this today, and​ I will even be better tomorrow!”

4. Do not demand from your child fast results and​ improvements. Remember, you should begin with small tasks, like homework or​ house work help.

5. Teach your child to​ be enthusiastic and​ open to​ new knowledge and​ experience. Explain and​ show him or​ her that, for​ example, every subject in​ school can be much more interesting if​ they try to​ learn more about it.

Invest your time, efforts and​ teach your child to​ be motivated to​ achieve their goals with the​ help of​ patience, diligence, strength of​ mind, will power, and​ hard work. This will be one of​ the​ most important investments in​ your life, because in​ the​ future you will be very glad to​ see that your son or​ daughter is​ able to​ achieve their goals and​ become a​ successful person.
