That a child of three or four years does not want to go to school can be quite usual. But when the child does not want to go only one day in particular, it makes you suspicious.
It turns out that my son started saying he did not want to go to school on Wednesdays. Only on Wednesdays. I did not want to explain why. But the night before, I could not sleep. He had nightmares and cried inconsolably in the morning. But why did not he want to go only that day? And I realized that it was the only day on which I had a subject taught by a specific teacher, disciplined and strong character. My son was beginning to hate his subject, because the teacher was panicking.
What to do if the child does not like a teacher
It can be English, mathematics, religion ... it can be any subject. If a child does not like to study something in particular, it can be for two reasons: Que - That he does not like the person who teaches the subject or how it is being taught.
- That he does not like the knowledge that this subject imparts.
In both cases, it is best to talk with the teacher who teaches the subject. Ask if the child is indifferent in class, if he is easily distracted, or if he is reluctant to participate. Try to find the reason why this rejection occurs. It is good to explain to the teacher what the child is like, what works and what does not work with him. Then it will depend a lot on the attitude of the teacher: if he is receptive to the suggestions of the parents or if he closes energetically before any comment.
In my case, the only answer I got from the teacher of martial air was a 'change of subject'.
When the child does not like a subject
It can also be the case that the child loves the teacher but hates the subject. Who has not happened to mathematics, physics, chemistry or even gymnastics? There are subjects that require reasoning, a greater effort or certain skills. And there are children who develop certain abilities before others. Therefore, the most demanding children can feel 'frustrated' and reject that subject where they are not able to excel.
In this case, what we should do is try to enhance that knowledge in another way. You can learn something concrete in many different ways. If one does not work, why not try another way? For example, in the case of English, the child may not like to sit at his desk while listening to the same phrase over and over again, or having to leave in front of everyone to try to express himself more or less correctly. But if you offer that same subject in a theater class, or through songs, the child will be more comfortable and will end up feeling attracted to the same subject that he previously rejected. The key is to attract the interest of the child. Create illusion And, any new knowledge, well explained, does not have to be boring.
