Dear Readers. Last week, we discussed how to decide which track your kids should be placed into in Yeshiva. This week, we’re going to IY”H focus on ways to motivate your children to learn better. This pertains to both Hebrew and English subjects.
Let me begin by being very clear about something. It’s the job of the Rebbe/teacher to motivate your child. The fact that we’re discussing pointers in no way should change that detail. If you feel that your child is not being motivated properly or has no desire to succeed, you need to have a serious discussion with the Rebbe or teacher in question.
Nonetheless, as parents, we understand that there are times that our children might occasionally need a bit of a jumpstart. Below are a few ideas that you can try - understanding of course, that some approaches may work better than others.
Wishing you continued Nachas from all of your your children.
Rabbi Yitzie Ross is a Rebbe and has been working with parents and kids for many years. You can read more about him in the "about" section.
