Keys to stimulate children’s learning and strengthen the bond between parents and children

According to various psychological theories, children learn from a model, who becomes someone significant to them. In this scenario, parents are the main references for the learning and development of their children, and this is possible only through a bond that is generated between them. If children see that their parents enjoy life, are responsible or seek solutions to difficulties, they will also learn these habits.

A question that parents should always ask their children is: What do they want to achieve in the short term? What do they need to learn to do what they want? In this way, they help them resolve their doubts through new learning. Thus, the father teaches him what the child really needs”, explains José Antonio Espinoza, Head of relations with the Catholic School of .

Precisely with the aim of guiding parents in the learning process of young people and children today, Santillana, in alliance with the Institute for Child Development ARIE, developed the first meeting “Families united for education”, an event aimed at parents with the aim of providing them with information for the development and learning of children.

How to achieve better learning in your children?

In line with this, the specialist makes known some recommendations that parents should consider to strengthen the bond with their children, which in turn will help them achieve better learning in their children:

  • Know yourself: It is important for parents to remember that they, at some point, were also children, that will allow them to better understand their children, and not force them to be an adult.
  • Recover the inner child: It will allow children to better understand, precisely they are the ones who connect with the inner child they carry, when they play with them, or even when they call their attention to something.
  • Remember that children learn by playing: The theme is not either you play or you study, it is not a dichotomy, they can study while playing, how to help them find that playful sense to learn from everyday life not only from academic performance, but also learn to live better. Children learn academics by playing.

Regarding the problem of learning diversity, the specialist points out that it is important to recognize that each child has a different rhythm and that they should not compare their children with other children, on the contrary, to empower them they must cultivate constant communication, which does not judge the child, but to help him understand how he feels.

This meeting is part of the Santillana Familias 2022 annual program. If you want to be part of the parents’ club, you should pay attention to the schedule of events to be held in the following months.
