Today, among the mothers of pupils of the school, complaints about reduced child's progress are heard quite often. And, it would seem, everything is done for him. The child is led to tutors, to additional classes, plus more for sports and something to develop creative abilities. And he manages to play computer games in rare moments of rest. And all the effort wasted. Nothing helps. Do you want us to tell you the secret, how, without extra efforts, without tutors and additional lessons, make a child a successful student? Encourage him to love reading books. Reading develops attention, perseverance, spatial imagination, analytical thinking and many other positive qualities. Ideally, the child should be taught to books from birth. But, since you are a schoolboy's parents, a happy moment is missed. Then you need to start with yourself. Read the books yourself. Read so that the child sees. Ask the child for his books and then tell how interesting you were and how you liked the book. Make reading desirable and not always available. Make sure that the child asks permission to read the book. And then you can grow a confident person with a clear life position.
