Studies

It seems that due to your experience of failing, your motivation has gone down. Label your emotions when you sit to study. What do you feel?  What are the various emotions involved? Is it anger, guilt etc?

Secondly assess how committed you are towards achieving your goal and evaluate your strengths and weaknesses that play a vital role in your achievement of your ultimate goal. Change your strategy of studying. Break down your ultimate goal into short term goals.  Your short term daily goals should be realistic and moderately difficult (between too easy and too difficult) . Once you start finishing these goals your motivation will increase. Try to engage in mock competition with friends studying for the same course. It will help you give a feedback about how much effort is needed and if any change of strategy is required. Set up a schedule for your day, eat healthy, get enough sleep and exercise.

Try techniques of behavior modification. Use negative reinforcement and positive reinforcement. For negative reinforcement one takes away a certain privilege from the child. Explain it to your child that if you do not study then you would have to bear with the consequences. Even when taking away something from your child, specify that it is not a punishment but the consequence of his/her actions.  The child would definitely react but you need to be assertive and calm. Positive reinforcement is you giving something to the child when he himself has completed a certain ‘decided upon’ portion of his/ her study material. Remember it is different from bribing. You cannot tell the child that if you study you will get something. It is upon you to decide what and how would you give the positive reinforcement to your child. Other techniques include token economy and star charting. For more tips on this you can connect with us via our app.
