3 Simple Ways in Raising an Achiever Child

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 is on top of the class. Aside from academic achievement, he is also now a yellow belt holder in the sport 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 of 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 them 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 doesn’t have a professional tutor. Though I’m a working mom, who spends 8 hours the fieldwork, I always make sure that I can guide him in his 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 different fields of activities if you can see that he loves painting, playing musical instruments, or sports, expose him to that kind of activity that will enhance his/her skills. Little man loves sports in the field of Karate-do so, at the young age of 7, I enrolled him in Karate-do class. After months of training, he levels up and aims for much.  Understanding and full support of a child’s interest is a way of encouraging he will be actively involved in non-academic activities. This is much better than spending a child’s spare time playing games online.

Adjust to Your Child’s Changing Needs. As your child gets older, they will have to navigate different challenges throughout their lives. It’s your job as a parent to keep on top of these changes and to make sure that you are always there to help them. After all, you don’t just have to deal with a changing child, you also have to deal with a changing world. Keep on top of issues that could impact them.

For example, the legalization of marijuana in different states impacts parents and children alike. No matter what your personal opinions are, it’s important to keep informed about how the law is changing, especially in regard to juveniles. Read about Daniel Fung arrest opinions to keep abreast of issues that might affect your child’s life. This is just one area where parents need to be aware of the needs of their children and teenagers. It’s always a work in progress, and it’s always worth the effort.

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.

    It is always important to show our child support and give them encouragement. A lot of investment is needed on the part of the parent but it does pay off .
    Congrads on your son’s achievements.

    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. 🙂

    Congratulations to your kiddo! I have to agree with your points. And I hope I could do them on Nate as he grows up. I’m excited to learn what his achievements will be.

    Achiever children need the support of their parents in order for them to fully realize their potential. And I truly admire such parents who give their time and resources for their children. No doubt this post gives great tips and a heads up to would be parents.

    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. 🙂

  9. Janice says:

    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.

  10. Maan says:

    Wow, congratulations! Great work, mommy! I agree with everything you listed above (although I went to school with some achiever kids who had tutors, so it depends), that good parenting is the biggest factor in raising achievers. But I also believe that not all kids/people are academically-inclined; I believe in multiple intelligence! 😀

  11. Chessy says:

    Great tips! We have a to-do list per day and it helps my son do things by himself. Children should be in a loving environment in order to trust himself to overcome challenges.

  12. Mommy Gracie says:

    Great tips mommy!

    I agree that parenting plays a big role in molding our child’s potential. I also agree in teaching discipline and knowing their interest before engaging them to activities – instead of just doing what’s trending, as parents we know exactly our child’s interest and strength ?

  13. Yvonne Bertoldo says:

    Congratulations for raising your child well 🙂 I love the idea of creating a to-do list for my kids which i’ll definitely apply specially now that classes will be starting soon. But I hope that my child is as active as yours kasi instead of choosing an extra co-curricular club like glee, dance, ballet or karate, she wanted to join the Math Club. ?

  14. EINz says:

    Agree. Love and support makes them confident and believes at their own capabilities. Encouragement is the best way to fuel up their strength.

  15. Juvy says:

    For me the best teacher is experience, letting them be like children – clowning around and getting dirty. Each and everyones parenting style may be different, but one thing is the same we want the best for our little ones.
