Shopping for food, clothing, accessories, decorations etc is the fun part of Chinese New Year. After the hard work we put in spring cleaning and cooking, we must dress up in our best to visit or receive relatives and friends.

3 Simple Steps to Construct a Consistent Study Routine for Your Child

It is always a challenge to just put your child in one place and simply expect them to sit there for half an hour just to study/do their homework. Is it impossible? Well, no. Is it difficult? Well, definitely and obviously yes.

However, the rewards come down to your children having healthy learning habits and also letting them find their uniqueness and specialty in a subject.

They could be well-versed in languages and creativity or logical and critical in mathematics. The larger purpose is for your children to sharpen their thinking and mature throughout their learning journey. If your children are struggling with studying then a study routine can be a massive help.

That being said, all habits start from us, the parents or those who are older than them. Environment and influence are a big factor in cultivating our children. So, how exactly can you establish a study routine for your child? Don’t stress for there are 3 simple steps.

3 simple steps to establish a study routine for your child

1. Study Habits – Observe your child's habits. Developing study habits is a good starting line to a good study routine. Habits, by definition, are autonomous actions that were developed over time without much conscious thought. Parents can foster positive study habits by encouraging them to take positive actions like taking notes, reading a new page, or asking if they have any hesitation. All of these habits can be helpful for your children’s learning journey.

2. Planning and Preparation – Always plan the study session and separate it from actual learning and completing homework. Help them plan around the activities they want to do. Having an actual timetable or schedule can help them to navigate through their school life. Preparation doesn’t always mean giving them books and letting them do their thing, it can also mean preparing them mentally by talking through them.

3. Praising and Rewards – Keep talking to them about studying. Get them to be ready in a mindset to study. Be supportive and do not hesitate to praise even if it is for a very minor achievement. Have a reward system. Always give rewards alongside praises. It can boost their confidence and love for learning. It is about acknowledging the value of their hard work and dedication.

This article was brought to you by Eye Level Malaysia.

Eye Level Malaysia is an enrichment center that can help your children to achieve learning goals. The math and English programs offered by the center aim to foster discipline and consistency in the study routine of enrolled students. The establishment emphasizes the importance of a well-established study routine in cultivating self-directed learners among the children. 

With a widespread presence of over 100 centers across Malaysia, parents are encouraged to drop by to visit for a firsthand experience and a free diagnostic test.
