How to Train My Son to Facilitate his Learning in the Future

The greatest intellectual growth in children occurs between 0 and 5 years, which is why we must take this stage to take a greater advantage of their learning, however neurosciences warns us that the brain will continue to grow, although with less and less rhythm so It is never too late to start with our children.


1. Inculcate the Habit of Reading:
Many parents are concerned about teaching children to read from an early age, I'm not saying that this is not important, but it's better that we teach them to like reading than learning to read; What it is good for our children to learn to read early if they are going to stop reading because they do not like reading, reading will not only reinforce their knowledge but will open the door to new learning.

2. The Greater the Number of Senses the Child will Apply to his / her More Effective Learning.
✓ For example, if you are a pre-school child you will learn vowels better not only if you see them but also if you can feel them too, for example if you learn the vowel "A", you can start doing it with flash cards Which shows the figure below accompanied by cards with the other vowels but it will be very important also that you draw on the floor the vowel “A” and ask your child to walk on it, then on the card can ask you to delineate with plasticine and that you pass your finger on it, another activity that is suggested is that your child in front of a mirror repeat the vowel "A" exaggerating to watch as you gesticulate while doing so, this must be done in different sessions not to tire it out and then pass Just to the writing of the vowel always respecting its age and degree of maturity both intellectually and motorically speaking.
✓ In the case of a school-age child who, for example, is learning about the cultures of a country, the child will learn better if we take him to the museum or look for some content to go deeper into the subject matter in newspapers, magazines, the internet or on television shows such as Discovery Chanel in order to be able to arouse interest in the subject in study helping your child to form the habit of investigating.


3. Formar Hábitos de EstudioForm Study Habits
This is the point at which most parents have problems, it is important to be able to form study habits two fundamental principles:
✓ Establish a schedule.
✓ Have an established and permanent place to do so.
These principles have to go according to the age of your child and should be as acceptably flexible, for example, normally pre-school children do not leave tasks but to do so, their schedule may be more flexible, it should not last more than forty minutes and even within this time should have a brief pause at fifteen, time that should be used so that your child can go to the bathroom or talk briefly or just give yourself a break, which should be avoided is to move away from Place of study unless you want to go to the bathroom and what we should strive is not to change the place where you do your homework or study, which can be your desk or dining room table, depending on the place you have observed that you have More natural light and more comfortable to study for your child. A child with study habits will be able to attend and concentrate better, facilitating highly their learning.

4. Proper Feeding.
Less carbohydrates, specifically sugar, less junk food, less gluten, more vegetables include foods such as eggs, fish, bananas, dried fruits, etc. in your child's food, will raise your attention and concentration, and As a result, their learning will be more productive.
