No one should have to suffer to be an effective learner. Often, children would try harder if they only knew how. Fortunately, you are a key person in any child’s life-long learning.
It can be easy to see lack of motivation as a child’s own problem to fix. The truth is that students depend on relationships with others, especially with their parents, to launch the behaviors that lead to independence.
Education need not be about creating barriers to learning.
Learning is every person’s birthright!
Instead we can give every child The Three Gifts of Motivation: academic and emotional skills that lead to competence; structure that leads to effective habits for supporting quality choices, and tools for creating hopeful, purposeful self-direction.
