3 Simple Ways in Raising an Achiever Child

Share

Count me among the proud moms for having a child consistently an achiever in school and excels in out of school activities. Yes, from pre-school to grade, my little man always receives awards and on top of the class. Aside from the academic achievement he also now a yellow belt holder in the sports he chooses which is Karate-do.

How does my little man achieve all of these? I’m going to share below my 3 simple ways in raising an achiever child. Hopefully, these simple motherhood tips of mine which are based on real practice will help you in bringing out the best in your child.

Teach the Value of Time and Deadlines. Create a productive routine for your child. Teach your child how to properly prioritize the things that need to accomplish during the day. I suggest, create to-do list board so that your child will be guided on the things or tasks he needs to be done. In this way, it will encourage your child to be more responsible and help understand the value of time.

Show Love and Support in Childs Ups and Downs. I read an article that states, “Study shows that majority of student achievers has never had professional tutors after school, and they are the products of good parenting.” What do you think of this study? In my viewpoint, I do agree with the study because my little man, don’t have a professional tutor. Though I’m a working mom, who spends 8 hours in the field work, I always make sure that I can guide him in studies which include spending at least an hour a day in tutoring particularly on complicated topics and examination days. Sometimes, little man gets very low marks, when it comes, unconditional acceptance is what I did plus helping him do better the next time and focusing more on where he is low.

Understand What Your Child has to Offer and Encourage. You have to know what your child has to offer and interests before you can encourage him/her to participate in non-academic activities. Every child excels in the different field of activities if you can see that he loves painting, play musical instruments or into sports, expose him to that kind of activity that will enhance more his/her skills. Little man loves sports in the field of Karate-do so, at his young age 7, I enrolled him in Karate-do class. After months of training, he levels up and aiming for much.  Understanding and full support to a child’s interest is a way of encouraging so he will be actively involved in non-academic activities. This is much better than spending child’s spare time in playing games online.

Always take note that bringing up an achiever and successful child does not rely only on providing books and other learning materials. Family and parental involvement in school and various enrichment activities of a child plus above all cultivating proper values are significant factors in learning and achievements in life.

Happy parenting!

    Great post. Love and support is a must. My son ran his first cross country the other day (5 years old) and he was so excited and kept saying he was going to run like flash and beat all his friends. I just keep saying it doesnt matter where you come as long as you have fun (he was last poor little thing it was such a long way for his legs)

    You bring some great points here! As Gardner posits in his Multiple Intelligences Theory, each child has a skill or ability in which he or she excels at, and parents and educators should work to bring the best out of those abilities, instead of pushing something that is not productive for the child.

    congrats on having an achiever child. It makes us parents proud when our little kids are like that no? But more importantly, we are more proud when our little kids are of nice values among others. 🙂

    Good on you! 🙂 My kids are not academic achievers but they are achievers in their own strengths and we are proud of them. Yes, I agree that we should teach them the value of time and deadlines. I tell my sons that even as entrepreneurs, we still have to honor our clients’ businesses by delivering excellent output on time as we promise. 🙂

    Great tips! I have kids who are achievers too. I think having supportive parents is really a key to a child’s success. We have to be mindful of their interests and continue to encourage them to do their best.
