As you are raising a young child, you are going to want to ensure you are not only instilling excellent study habits and note taking skills, but you’ll also want to work on teaching your child how to make healthy choices for life. Surely these choices will have an affect on your child’s study habits and enthusiasm as well, which only makes them that much more important. If you are wondering how you can successfully encourage your child to create and keep healthy habits for life, then The Tutoring Center in Torrance has a few suggestions for you today. 

Start by modeling the behavior you desire to see in your child. If you are hoping that he or she will begin to eat more healthy and make conscientious decisions regarding food, for example, then you will need to do the same. Your child will be watching you, and if you are excited about eating well, he or she will be more likely excited as well. Likewise, if you want to ensure that your child is taking time out to get exercise or engage in active play, you’ll need to be sure you are exercising and taking care of your body too. 

Next, you should remember that as you are encouraging your child to make healthy life choices, you should be limiting his or her use of technology. Certainly there are games, applications, and websites that are useful toward your child’s education, so you may not wish to completely remove technology from the life of your child. However, limiting the time he or she is allowed to spend on the computer, tablet, or even watching television, will free up some of your child’s time to pursue more active tasks. 

If you choose to reward your child for good behavior and specifically for beginning to make great and healthy choices, then it’s important that you remember to keep the rewards rewarding for your child. The rewards should not only be something that your child is interested in, but they should keep in line with what you are trying to accomplish. For example, if you are rewarding your child for making healthy eating choices, you won’t want to make the reward a trip to the ice cream store for an ‘all you can eat’ treat. Keep your reward in line with those healthy choices that are now being made. 

Lastly, be sure that you keep this journey interactive. Ensure that you are not only mandating what your child eats and does, but that your child is allowed to be involved in the decision making process. As your child continues to improve in his or her understanding of healthy choices, you should free him or her up to begin planning some meals and family outings even. 

As mentioned before, you’ll begin to see your child become more interested in academic pursuits as he or she continues to make healthy choices for life. However, that does not mean there will not be an area where your child could benefit from extra assistance. If there is a particular subject area your child is struggling in, do not hesitate to contact The Tutoring Center to schedule your child’s free diagnostic assessment.
