By CONNIE FEIGHTNER Special to the HeraldZeitung You can send a child to school but you cant make him learn As parents and teachers we all want to motivate and encourage our children Our inten tions are good yet the end results may be quite different from what we expected Many and often complex reasons may cause a child to be an underachiever unmotivated or dis couraged Two primary reasons are fear of failure and feelings of inade quacy Parents and teachers have many dai ly opportunities to encourage children What we say in our response and how we say it profoundly affect how chil dren see themselves Some children believe they cannot meet the high stan dards or expectations of parents and teachers and do not challenge and question the legitimacy of the parental expectations Such children are intim idated by competition and compari son between children They question their own adequacy thus undermining their sense of selfworth Their self talk says I cant rather than I And of course because they believe they cant they honestly cant The most important way to motivate and encourage your child is by demon strating caring Acknowledge recog nize and describe the effort your child puts into his work Focus on the behavior that you appreciate rather than imply that a child is more valu able or good when he shines or per forms for us Accept and respect your childs spe cialness Identify and foster your childs strengths those areas she enjoys and does well in even if not related to school work By minimizing weaknesses and reflecting back strengths a parent can help the child see herself as a capable person Like plants our children need to be strong and well rooted in love before we do any weeding Keep expectations realistic and age appropriate Brains and bodies devel op over time each reaching a stage of development at its own pace The order is more important than the speed and we cannot hurry development only nurture it Be aware of your childs physical mental and social readiness to move on There are class es through several community resources for parents that help them recognize the developmental stages and realistic expectations for children Help children identify their own goals not yours Allow children to try things on their own Help young children evaluate their own behavior by helping them make the connection between what they want and what they are doing Accept mistakes Let your child know its OK to make mis takes and that everyone makes lots of mistakes as they learn Once in a while you may want to share your mistakes thereby letting her know you are not perfect The major behaviors for you as a parent to avoid are comparing chil dren unrealisitc expectations nega tive feedback including sarcasm and forcing the child to perform or jump ing in to rescue your child The most important behavior to include in the parentchild relation ship is spending fun time together Research shows that spending enjoy able time with your child may be the single most important thing parents can do to help the child develop as a happy competent adult Parentchild togetherness helps a child feel signif icant valued and secure Often confrontations between par ent and child occur because the parent has not considered the natural limita tions of a child This causes stress for both parties and when parents and children are under stress the potential for child abuse occurs Planning ahead can relieve this situation and make for a more enjoyable event for the whole family April is Prevention of Child Abuse Month Communities that care about their children and families work together to find solutions Through awareness and use of community resources this devastating action against the family can be wiped out Family Outreach of
