If your child is struggling in school, or starting to regress a little in their behavior toward you or those at school, here are some things to consider as you try to find out the cause of their struggles.
Understand your preschooler’s personality and learning styles, and help his teacher to understand what is normal. Some kids learn visually, and some are more hands-on kinesthetic learners. Spend time with your child and research some things to find out what kind of learner your child is. Let your child’s teacher know so that they can make sure that they are helping your child learn in a way that is more beneficial to them.
Make sure your child is getting enough sleep. This one is really important because moods are determined by the amount of sleep your child gets. A good night’s rest can set the tone for the rest of the day. Make sure to go to bed early so they can be refreshed and ready to take on the day as soon as morning comes!
Make sure they have a healthy diet. Like sleep, diet also has a big influence over mood. Feed them a big healthy breakfast to prepare them for the day. Send a well-packed lunch with snacks aplenty. We’re all happier when we’ve had a nice meal!
Ensure they’re not overwhelmed. At this young age, it can be easy for them to feel overwhelmed with all that this big world is asking of them. Make sure there isn’t too much on their plate, and remember that kids pick up so much just from living life. Even playing is learning for them! Several extracurricular activities are not needed for young children. Just having a parent read out loud to them every evening could be more beneficial to them than an extracurricular activity.
