Now-a-days, many parents are jostled by the sole question; ‘What should I do to arouse my child’s interest in learning?’. The question doesn’t seem to strike too quickly to counsellors whom parents’ approach. Mostly, it is deemed to be a complicated one as learning is a multidimensional phenomenon. But, the fact is that this question is quite natural and straightforward. There are some basic reasons which can be attributed to this problem. As babies, children are new to this world, their brain tries to comprehend and recollect all that they see, touch and feel which creates an innate curiosity. But, at some point this natural love of learning is lost as things, after some time, become mundane and repetitive. Many children grow to dislike and even dread school and learning new things. Fortunately, in JBM Smart Start, the best CBSE school in Noida follows a few simple strategies through which the desire to learn is inculcated. The first one is to personify learning. It’s no secret that curiosity makes learning more effective and enjoyable. Curious students not only ask questions, but also actively seek answers. Give your children examples of great knowledgeable people who without curiosity, would have never done groundbreaking discoveries in science, technology etc. This would provide inspiration which would direct them towards achieving similar success. Help children discover interests and passions. Talk to your child about what he is doing, reading, watching and learning. Expose him/her to variegated experiences of museums, theatrical performances, theme parks which would excite their paradigm and can help you decipher certain topics or subjects in which they are highly interested, which allows you, as a parent, to get to know your child’s interest in order to make learning a fun ride for your child.
