Free Webinar Replay: Fight the Fizzle and Maintain Your Child’s Academic Motivation
Ann Dolin, M.Ed. explains effective ways to keep kids’ motivation going strong long past the first few weeks of school.
Every new school year represents a fresh start. Your child begins the year as bright and crisp as his new backpack, filled with hope, optimism, and energy for the school year ahead. That lasts about two weeks, then you notice his academic motivation and outlook waning. He forgets to hand in homework or study for a test, or acts up in class — and the next thing you know, he “hates school.” The phone calls home follow, and your child ends up feeling demoralized and disappointed. How can you stop this cycle before it begins so that your child is spared the emotional pain of failure?
In this webinar, Ann Dolin, M.Ed. discusses:
1. Why and when school motivation tapers off
2. How to use rewards and consequences to motivate your student
3. How to increase your child’s resiliency when he wants to give up
4. How to rev up your child’s learning curve with technology
5. How to talk and listen to your kids
6. Study skills for high school and college success
