How Parents can teach their own kids. Secret revealed!

How Parents can teach their own kids. Secret revealed!

 

I have a confession to make: as a paid, employed teacher, I had far more patience and time for the 30 plus children I used to teach on a daily basis than I used to have as a parent teaching my own daughter.

I know this to be true for many other teachers who are also parents.

Ever wondered why this is? I have, and I think I’ve found the answer!

Treat it as a job.

At home I was always finding something else to do, always looking to complete another domestic chore. Until that is, I began to see that time as another job to complete. 

Once I changed my attitude, and made myself available  - totally 100% committed to giving up a chunk of my time – it was a problem no longer.

My PATIENCE returned. Our TIME spent together became more productive. The QUALITY of learning improved. Sometimes tiny tweaks can have a massive impact!

Does this answer the rather 'click-baity' title: How teachers can teach their own kids: Secret revealed! ? Well, maybe it's stretching it a little!

But there is real value sometimes in the simplest of things. Try it for yourself before you judge.
