It very important as tutors or parents we appreciate the Childs attempt to find a solution and recognize their efforts. This is very much needed to keep their confidence , interest and positivity to work on their own for solutions , to locate and work on their errors without being disappointed for not able to get the results in a first attempt. It makes them ready to accept their mistakes and work on them knowing their problematic areas.
As parents not only highlighting the problem but also constantly giving them support as they are working towards the solution whether in academics or real life skills. It keeps them aware they are being observed and they are focused more on making progress. Also this develops an attitude to value the process than just the end results every time. Let them know how well they are trying and are making progress with affirmation. Give them enough time to find ways they can work or get better control.
We are always focused on rewarding them for results or achievements , sometimes give them recognition for trying to be able to improve in areas they lag behind . Remind them positively how they need to work on it , why is it necessary and appreciate their efforts in the direction . Also work with them to make to guide or make progress in the right direction.
This makes them more tolerant and humble individuals as they learn to understand they too have areas to work on , and how others have their challenges to work on . They learn to respect others for they are trying in every way and how its necessary to value another’s effort even though the results are not up to their expectation or needs. They know the power of trying and how its important to go through the process to understand the actual complexities , difficulties and patterns involved . In these times kids too are going through many challenges we need to be there for them and let them know they are making efforts noteworthy and you value them.
