Heavy work loads, busy schedules and stressful homework are just a few situations that contribute to our learners filling their cups. Many parents call us looking to help their children, often they are noticing how overwhelmed, stressed and busy their child is. Juggling full cups can lead to a messy spill, luckily we have tips on how to determine if your learner is feeling the effects of a full cup.
- Is your child showing signs of not finding their course work interesting? They might appear disinterested or disengaged, you may notice this in their body language. Are they often distracted, physically uncomfortable, yawning? All of these signs could be telling us they are overwhelmed with the material.
- Talk to your child. Directly ask your child how they feel during their classes and work. Often their feelings, opinions and questions can help gauge their level of interest and understanding on different subjects.
- Assess their progress. Is your child making progress or struggling to move forward with their material? A sign of them feeling overwhelmed may be that they find the material too challenging.
- Ask the teacher for their feedback. Teachers are a great resource to connect with when you are having concerns about your child's learning. Teachers may notice these signs at school as well.
