These situations may take various forms like a poor learning environment, books, audio-visual aids, or even the pre-occupation of parents to seriously follow up their children to buy even costly learning aids, be it simple or complex, provided facility for learning is achieved.
Employing the rote method, that is, letting children mechanically, tediously repeat the things to be learned and memorized until a process of imprinting one's mind works favorably. Thus, learning takes place.
Experience tells us that coercing the child to learn when he is not ready or unwilling to do it, does not manifest an assurance the child may learn. In this situation, motivation is necessary like an "appetizer" that will develop and create a desire upon learners to pursue craving for more learning. It may include a good smile, a clean sheet of paper, a colored well-sharpened pencil, or anything that leads the child's willingness to study. Thus, parents' tactfulness, resourcefulness, and a loving, sincere concern for their children to learn warrant facility for children's learning.
I remember 22 years ago, when our youngest son is 5 years old, a kinder pupil, an easy tips for parents to maximize child's learning potential were distributed and I got a copy of it. And we had adopted for him.
