Tips to inspire children for learning

Parent Interventions

 ‘Home is the first school and parents are the first teachers’ is a saying in many cultures. Though the genetic factors and environment together play roles in shaping children’s behavior and attitude, the circumstances of socialization has more impact during the childhood years.

 Experiences and interactions at homes influence and impact the learning decisions of children. Parents’ attitudes about school and schooling and their thirst for knowledge get transferred to children knowingly or unknowingly.

How can a child’s parents and home act as a place of motivation for learning?

Expose children to avenues of learning – Nature, books, great persons, events and incidents


Parent become a learner himself/herself and  be a model to children

Find out the child’s interests and support nurturing them – provide toys based on that, arrange for vacation activities related to his/her interests

Show interest in the happenings at school and give them your time – listen to their stories from school
