Does your child spend hours to complete what is actually 15-minutes worth of homework?
No matter if you sit beside him or leave him alone, nothing is done? Instead, he will be doodling, daydreaming, watching YouTube on his phone, listening to music… anything but getting the work done.
And when he finally finishes the work 3 hours later, you will have to break it to him that he has to go to bed. There’s no more time to play!
Now, explain to your child that he will have 45 minutes of play time only if he can (1) focus in doing his homework and (2) complete it in 15 minutes.
This is akin to your boss telling you that you can leave work at 3pm once you complete your report. Wouldn’t you focus all your effort to complete your report?
Explain the outcome clearly, so your child will strive to achieve by doing the thing you want him to do – focus! Try it! I do this to my son sometimes when I see him losing his concentration.
Dear Parents with Pri 5 and 6 children,
Does your child hate doing Chinese comprehension practices? Is it always a tug-of-war when you ask him to do them?
The reason for her resistence is - there isn't a step-by-step system that imparts comprehension skills to your child in bite-sized portions. Even if there is one, he might not get a system that gives him comprehension tools and personal support.
But is there such a system available to learn Chinese Comprehension?
Yes! There is one now...
See how this system takes Chinese Comprehension apart and breaks it down into sensible small chunks for Pri 5 and 6 students to follow >> http://fllacademy.com/mycltoolbox/lsm
If your child is taking Higher Chinese, check this out instead>> http://fllacademy.com/myhcltoolbox/lsm
Remember, your child is just one step away from her desired Chinese grades!
More and more parents believe that stipulating the right hemisphere of the brain is as important as developing the left. However, classes that specifically cater to such holistic development don’t come cheap. So, what can we do if we cannot afford these? The answer is for them to do art.
