Talking to the teachers gives insight into the possible causes of their poor school performance. Is it because they are easily distracted? Do they lack motivation? How deep do the challenges run? Answering these questions allows you to decide how to better support your child.
Note that kids who have medical conditions, like ADHD, dyslexia, and developmental or behavioral concerns need expert help.
2. Think about learning styles
Just as kids develop at different rates, they also have different learning styles. Some kids learn better in silence, while others want some background music or light noise. Some kids are visual learners, while others prefer learning while walking around.
Take learning styles into consideration when teaching your child lessons. Eliminate distractions, too, and help your child become organized in their way.
3. Be patient. They are not struggling on purpose
Another tip to support kids with poor school performance is to be patient with them. In their struggles, they might explode in anger, refuse to go to school when there is recitation or quiz, and refuse to study at home.
Allow them to express their frustration. It may seem like they are provoking you, but respond calmly. Meeting their outburst with another outburst might only further hamper their motivation to learn.
