Learning Do you get it or not

Today I want to give you an introduction to children’s learning and an overview of what can affect a child’s learning. As a mother of 4 school aged children this is a subject that I am very passionate about and deal with on a daily basis, from homework to teachers to classmates and everything else in between!

Learning do you get it or not

There are many things in a child’s life that can affect their learning, here are a few areas that need be looked at when looking at a child’s learning:

Brain Integration
Hydration (please read my previous blog on ‘Water is an Essential Part of our Life’)
Diet / Nutrition (please read my previous blog on ‘Learning about Protein’)
Emotional state
Life stressors

I will be going into detail over the up and coming blogs about these issues, today I just wanted to give you an introduction to learning.

As adults I am sure that there have been times in your lives when your learning has been easy and it has made sense and you get it! I am also very sure that there have been times in your life when your learning has been hard and nothing made sense and nothing was sinking in! Take a moment to think about each of those times and when you got it and when nothing made sense. I know when I feel that I am not getting it, I feel overwhelmed, hopeless, embarrassed and I just want to give up because I am not smart enough. The times in my life when I have caught on, I feel successful, secure in my knowledge and confident in myself and what I know. Our children do and will have the same experiences in their learning.

At those times in your life when you felt that you got it, did you feel a centred and peaceful state within? I know I did. This can be achieved with our children by incorporating body movements and visual experiences into their learning. By doing this our children are actually able to feel, visualise and imagine what they are learning and therefore it is centred into both their left brain (logic and detail) and right brain (visual and bigger picture). Once this occurs then the child is able to feel that their learning is coming naturally and flows easily. So next time you are with your children and helping them with their learning, encourage them to actually feel, visualise and imagine what they are learning to help anchor it.

It is my hope that my children and other children feel that ‘Got It’ state throughout all their learning, which will bring about a joy and confidence in learning.

Until my next blog, enjoy your children.
