One of the most difficult and yet exciting days for us parents is to bring our child to school for the first time. To see them in their uniforms and bags is just overwhelming, despite the fact that it’s often challenging to convince them that school is actually more fun than scary. But how do we encourage these precious little ones that it’s fun and important to go to school?
You may want to try some of the things I learned (through experience) to encourage children to love school and learning. Remind them that:
- Going to school means learning together with friends
- Going to school will allow them to play at the playground after class
- They will be rewarded or treated by going to school
What I believe is, the most important thing that a parent should know is that convincing their children to go to school is not a sole responsibility. When you talk, the children’s understanding on what you say may not be understood well. Remember, they don’t think the way we do. Shouting at them or even pinching them won’t really help but in fact scare them away.
I think, another effective way to help them feel good about going to school is to tour them around school before attending classes. Let them enjoy the facilities; do not let them start with books right away.
We bring our children to school and pay for their tuition to make sure that their future will be bright. If the school ambiance is not appealing and conducive for learning then we will fail no matter how much money and effort we invest.
Good books and good teachers make an important contribution to the child’s learning progress. And so does safe furniture, murals and colorful surroundings play a very important factor in inviting children to attend school. Take a look at these photos.
Aren’t these appealing and inviting to the eyes of our children? Definitely they are!
If we want to help them enjoy learning, without the need to force them, let’s surround them with fun and safe learning tools like the ones above.
