Q:

How can I motivate and encourage my son to study his lessons in school? He is turning 6 next April and seems not interested in schooling.

My son is more than 5yrs.old and in Kindergarten II but he is more into playing and seems not interested in schooling. He easily get tired in writing and not interested in learning how to read. What will I do to motivate him and how can I encourage him to learn?

Hi there,
In kindergarten, it's important to remember that "schooling" and "playing" are not mutually exclusive. That is, through the act of playing and exploring his environment, your child is actively learning. Furthermore, some experts believe that as the demands of school get more and more intense at an early age, it's simply not appropriate to push young children too hard in the academics early on. Your child may be stressed and responding with a decreased interest in reading and writing. You can help by trying the best you can to make learning fun and exciting, instead of a chore or assignment.

If you need some ideas, here are fun kindergarten reading activities that your child may enjoy:

For me help teaching my daughter to learn counting. I ask her questions to the pictures she needs to counting. For example: How
many cakes do you see for you and chloe to eat? The picture may show
just one cake or up to five cakes. I also include peoples names to help like I did in the example.
