Although studying comes naturally to a lucky few, most people have to learn how to study just as they would learn any new skill. The earlier you help your child build good study habits, the easier it will be for these study skills to become second nature by the time he or she reaches college.
When it comes to teaching your child how to study, remember that what works for one person may not work for another. Give your child the chance to try out a few different study environments and techniques until he or she finds the one that feels most productive. Encourage your child to carve out time in his or her schedule exclusively for studying. Scheduling study time not only ensures that the work will get done, but also allows your child time left over for crucial rest.
