Falling into Fall: Replacing Academic Fears with Victory
One of the challenging things children face in school regarding their
academics is fitting into labels that reflect not being “good enough.” Though
achieving excellent grades is a remarkable thing, frequently children do not even
understand the importance of what they are learning or lack the motivational skills
to push themselves to do better. There are standardized tests, assessments, and
labels of success that many children struggle to fit into without ever getting to the
root of the problem. The problem is fear. Fear of making bad grades, fear of not
doing as well as other peers, fear from things being “too hard.” However, the
reality of it is, that fear should be replaced with a mindset of victory. It’s time to
encourage our students, children, and even other people’s children, to change their
mindset in this positive direction. Once their mindset changes, their capable of
doing some fantastic things! Here are some great tips to help begin that process.
Tip #3: Striving to do the best. Sometimes students can get lazy just like
adults! It is so helpful to encourage your children always to strive to do their very
best. Not putting in a great effort to learn a particular concept can welcome fear,
which will only get worse once grades come out.
