Every child does not perform the same as others. If your child is not doing good at school, you should not scold him or her. I have personally never scolded or put down my kids in front of others for any reason.
It is okay to perform low by some kids in schools. As a parent, we should try to understand their feelings rather than putting them in uncomfortable conditions. If your child is struggling in school, try to find the cause of it. It may be because he or she is a slow learner, autistic, and may have any developmental problem. I would suggest consulting a child psychologist for review.
Examples of struggles in school by kids
Kids who struggle in school, always keep themselves separated from crowds. We need to understand what is keeping him/her back. Some examples of struggles by kids in school.
- Unable to show good performance in-class tests, annual exams.
- Showing no interest in study and school activities.
- No interest in playing with friends, keeping themselves away from others.
What to do when the child is struggling in school
Now coming to the main part, what you can do as a parent of a struggling child. You as a parent should never scold your child for not performing well in the class. Instead, you should always encourage them for playful activities.
It will be difficult for you to diagnose the cause of the struggle by yourself. But, consulting a child psychologist will be a good decision. Child psychologists are experts in dealing with such cases in day-to-day life. A child psychologist will guide you on what to do next.
Now, the final takeaway for parents with a struggling child is never to let their child feel down when he or she feels depressed. Support in every step to perform better in schools. This way only a child can overcome the struggle.
