Nowadays, procrastination is a frequent word, especially among young people. They use it as an excuse to avoid doing their homework and other responsibilities. Although we all procrastinate in one way or another, it can become a problem when it negatively impacts the academic achievement of your children.
Fortunately, there is something you can do about it. That’s why, at The Tutoring Center in Ocoee, we prepared the following post.
What is it?
Bluntly put, procrastination is avoiding tasks that require immediate attention to do more enjoyable ones - It’s natural to pay attention to exciting new activities to those that are part of our daily routine. There are many things that can be causing this behavior: lack of confidence, perfectionism or boredom.
Create a Study Environment
Having a space where your children feel comfortable to study is very important. Remember that it should be well-lit, organized and you should provide school supplies, so your children don’t stand up constantly. Never allow that your children study on their beds, that place is reserved to relax and sleep.
A simple, yet effective, method is to write down the tasks that need to be done each day. If the task it’s too big, you can divide it into chunks. Remember to make time for breaks and don’t forget to reward your children after a task is completed.
Like we said before, lack of confidence, the thought that we are not good enough to fulfill a task or fear of success can lead to procrastination. Tutoring can provide to your children the tools and strategies to boost their confidence. That way, they will stay motivated, plus they will also develop great study habits.
The Tutoring Center offers a free diagnostic assessment to find out the academic strengths and weaknesses of your children. That way, we will be able to focus on the areas that need improvement, so your children start a new school year filled with confidence.
