It is no wonder if a child is lazy to study. However if it goes to the lengths that he or she doesn’t want to do any school work at all then as a parent it is your responsibility to look into the matter and understand what are the reasons behind all that. Does the child display laziness in going to school or is it just that they don’t want to sit and do some homework? Does he or she despise a certain subject or is it all the subjects that are taught in the school?
Look for solutions
Unfortunately there is no exact solution for children’s laziness. However if you somehow find out the reasons behind it then you can apply the relevant answer to fix that. For example, if they don’t like only a certain subject then that could mean the teacher is not likable; that the teacher cannot do a good job in teaching that subject. Therefore the student doesn’t understand what is being taught hence he or she doesn’t want to look at it even when they are at home. If they don’t want to go to school altogetherand give excuses to skip school then it probably is an issue in the classroom. Maybe the kid doesn’t have friends, maybe some other students in the class are bullying them. If the school is not preferable by them as a whole you can probably let them take some interesting subject; suggest something like piano lessons Melbourne so that they have something to look forward to.
Discipline your children
Some child psychologists are against punishment. However there is nothing wrong with disciplining your child if they are misbehaving. For example if they are too lazy to study or do the homework, you can deprive them of something they like. Watching television can be limited for them. Or in today’s world, most probably the game time or the time they have access to a mobile phone, computer, laptop or a tab can be limited. This is not a punishment but actually making them understand that their laziness has outcomes, outcomes that day will not like. But make sure to do this so that they do not hate you but understand that fun comes after what is important, school work.
Make it interesting
If your child doesn’t want to do any homework or school work but if they are interested in other things such as playing games you have to understand that they are more interested in visual stimulation.Therefore you can try to make school work attractive; in that way you can probably teach him how to study by drawing what is explained in the book rather than just reading it. Maybe they are good at music and they don’t have an idea. Then you can direct them to take music lessons for kids and they will come to love it. You can encourage them to follow it and if they really like it that is another thing you can deprive them of, if they stop school work. We all want our children to do best. But it is best try to be a friend rather than a discipliner always.
