Share learning experiences

 

Through learning activities with their parents is how children can better develop social competence, motivation, persistence, and general love of learning.[33] In everyday moments is when the most meaningful learning occurs. Taking advantage of this indispensable ingredient of time shared with their children is how mothers and fathers can better facilitate their lifelong learning.

There are quick and simple ways to incorporate learning into the daily routine.[34] Giving easily shared learning experiences, whether at home or abroad, such as for example at the supermarket. Whether preparing a new recipe, or a field trip, learn out loud. Involve your children. Encourage them to ask questions, to “teach” you new information, to predict what will happen next. Let the children explore on their own and learn from the interaction with their environment. Let them fail. To motivate them, praise them for their effort, not for their intelligence.[35] As one of the most important learning areas that affect all the others is reading, you can organize a space and time to study and read at home. But the most important thing is to stimulate children’s curiosity,[36] taking advantage of every space, moment, experience to marvel at the world and life. Learn optimism.[37]
