1. Discuss Goals with them

In a collaborative manner, speak with your child about what his/her aspirations are. It could be in terms of which secondary school he wants to enter or what he wants to be in the future. By doing so, you are helping your child to visualize a goal that he can work towards. This will help to reinforce the importance and relevance of studying hard and getting good grades so that he can achieve his goals.

Also, guide your child to set and achieve realistic study goals. For example, you could get your child to write his weekly study goals down on paper (Monday: “Finish 1 chapter of Science”) and pin them up at his study area. This is to help your child stay focused and serve as a form of encouragement for him to study with a goal in mind.
