The following tips might also help:
1. Have an in-depth discussion with their teachers
The numbers in a child’s report card don’t reveal much about the struggles they have in the subjects. That’s why it’s helpful to talk to their teachers. Ask them about your child’s difficulties in class, what strategies seem to help, and how you can support learning at home.
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. Ask other people from school
On top of having an in depth discussion with teachers, asking other people from school also helps. You can ask your child’s friends and the school personnel about your child’s psychosocial functioning. Do they think your child is being bullied? Do they suspect other factors, like peer pressure or extracurricular activities, to be responsible for the poor academic performance?
3. Think about learning styles
