To help your children beat this stressful period of the year, you really ought to learn how to effectively listen to them!
However, what you should keep in mind is that Listening doesn’t always mean verbal communication but sometimes it could be deeper than that, say, watching for non-verbal cues that can help you figure out what’s going wrong with your loved ones!
So, try to talk with your kids, start casual conversations while you are picking them up from school or when at the supermarket. But it’s important to avoid pressing them to give you answers.
2Talk About Homework
Let’s admit it! We have all been to school and we know well how hard it is to go back to school after a long summer vacation! So, before you start yelling at your kids or punishing them for grades, try to help them finish the assignment.
They need your help and that ’s one of your responsibilities as a parent! So, try to discuss the work with them and talk about what’s due tomorrow or the next day and help them plan well to get the work done.
Plus, never forget that you should always focus on the completion and understanding of the concept of the assignment and not grades!
