How You Can Help Your Child Create Positive Habits

From an early age, parents can help their children to create positive habits that will remain with them. These habits can include daily chores, showing empathy towards others, completing homework or study tasks, or eating a healthy diet. The earlier you introduce positive habits, the more likely that your child will adapt to these, and they will become part of a daily routine.

Here are some of Pixel’s tips to helping your child create Positive Habits:

Create a set schedule 

This tip is important for children with Intellectual or Learning Difficulties as these children thrive on schedules. Creating a set schedule with room for their own time, allows children to get into a routine. Routines should include set homework time, set time for physical activity, and time for technology.

Physical Activity

Physical Activity should be encouraged every day. This tip will help keep your child’s mind remain clear, and their bodies healthy, which allows them to achieve better results in the classroom. Encourage activities such as swimming, cooking, or running.

Practice what You Preach

Your child is watching you and modeling your behaviors. By practicing positive habits, your child will understand what is required of them and will model the same behaviors.

Set Goals

Have your child set goals for themselves and set goals for your child to achieve. Set realistic goals that can be achieved and allow for and encourage mistakes.
