Motivation: The Key to Your Childs Educational Success

A child starts learning even before he or she starts schooling. Therefore, it is important for parents motivate their child to learn as early as possible before he or she enters school. Have a quick look at the tips for motivating kids to start learning at an early age for their educational success.For the first year or two of life outside the womb, our brains are in the most impressionable state they will ever be in. A baby's brain is immediately shaped by the environment. As a parent, one can have a large influence on one's newborn's first encounters with learning. The mind learns optimally when appropriately challenged in an environment that encourages taking risks. However, under perceived threat, the mind does not perform as well. This makes it harder to learn when you are nervous, stressed, or not feeling well. Before a child learns to talk, they experience emotions. Emotions are another source for improving memory. People are better at recalling stories that held strong feelings. The emotional context plays an important role in the learning process. People with excellent memories have multiple interests. We naturally remember what we are interested in. As a parent, it is crucial to teach your child the value of learning. Motivation is the key to learning.
