Classroom learning involves learning some material using the textbooks, and others being taught in a setting that you are actually in, as well as taking notes and using a standardized testing process. Classroom learning requires time, support, and attention.
Online Versus In-classroom Learning,which Is More Effective
Parenting isn’t for everyone.
The closer we get to the college years, the further out of college it gets. By the time college students start real adult work, a lot of them have experienced a lot of outside influences. Many people, however, don’t choose to become parents.
Can adult parents teach their children lessons about what it means to be an adult? Or do they teach the same stuff their friends were learning in junior high and high school? What are some of the ways of learning that are probably going to be missing from the relationships between adults and children?
Online vs. In-Classroom Learning
Where I do believe that the learned process is the most effective is in school. Whether you’re at home or in school, learning is still learning. Whether you’re staring at a computer screen or in class, learning is learning.
Childhood is a time of education, but learning is learning. Some of the first things kids learn in school are the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic. Once kids enter into high school, they take on more of the important learning experiences, as well as the challenges they may face as they enter to adulthood.
College certainly is different than school, but many people use school as a training for the challenges they will face when they enter to work. When parents try to take back lessons from their children, it ends up backfiring. Making your kids think you have more to offer than they do isn’t helpful.
Children, especially teenagers, are not good at giving up information or even large chunks of time. When kids learn a specific skill or experience from an adult, they just want to keep it with them. There’s a big difference between asking about something that’s already happened and trying to recreate or re-experience the experience.
It’s not surprising that parents constantly try to undo the learning they’ve done or tried to perfect. Parents often have their own struggles, of course, and no one can be the perfect parent all the time.
It’s not unreasonable to believe that, by the time a child enters adulthood, they’ve learned most of the valuable skills that are being taught in school. Some of those skills are never going to go away.
Parental Guidance Sometimes Sets Kids Up For Failure
Kids learn and grow in many different ways. If they get what they need from your advice, great. If they don’t, you don’t have to correct or correct yourself.
One of the other challenges of parenting is believing in your child enough to keep them positive about their lives. A lot of the decisions they make in their younger years are based on the guidance they get from you. You are supposed to be their advocate and adviser.
To get what you want out of your children, though, you have to be realistic about what your kids can and can’t do. You have to acknowledge that your kids’ development process is significantly different than yours, and that you are both going to get what you want.
The best way to set kids up for success is to encourage and support them when they are doing well. If you don’t show how confident you are in their abilities, you may be setting them up for failure. At the same time, you’re not going to get a kid to do everything right if you’re too critical of them for the mistakes they make.
When I think of what I learned as a kid, the important parts that I’ve kept with me are things like working hard and trying my best. Sometimes, however, I learned that hard work doesn’t actually equal effort. Sometimes, effort just doesn’t translate into good or satisfactory results. Some times, with my progress, I learned that goals might not be the best approach.
