MINT HILL, NC – There are opportunities for our children to learn every day. What can we do to make sure that we are laying a strong foundation for learning in our children? First, we can make learning a priority. We must challenge the mindset that learning is just for school and only in the classroom. The whole world is a classroom and there is so much to explore. Learning takes place not only in the classroom, but outside of it too. Learning is more than just memorizing names, dates and information. Obtaining knowledge exposes us to new ideas and allows us to empathize with others. Learning provides the framework by which we live our lives. As parents, mentors and educators, we have an opportunity to inspire our children to think outside of the box and explore the world around them. A child can begin to love to learn before they are able to hold a pencil. Cultivating a love for learning begins at home. In fifteen to twenty minutes, you can bond with your child over a bedtime story. There are opportunities to teach math during a stop at the grocery store. As your child grows, he will begin to seek opportunities to learn on his own. As distractions and time wasters clamor for our childrens’ attention, let’s continue to guide our children toward learning every day.
