"Have a Defiant Child Problem?"
Get Your Child to Behave
Simple Step-by-Step Action Plan
Children and Learning
by DeAnne Joy, MPNLP, LCSW
How would you like a way to help your child to feel more
successful at home, at school, with friends?
How would you like to feel less stress in your life and have
a better relationship with your child?
What if your child knew simple, effective strategies that
will enable him to learn easily and quickly?
It has been my experience that virtually every young person
that I have worked with has had the desire to do well, to be
accepted by their peers, to feel pride from their parents,
and to feel good about themselves. If they are not doing
well in school or with learning, it is not because they lack
the desire to learn. The number one problem that I find
children and adolescents facing is that they don't have
effective strategies for learning the information that is
being taught to them.
When children feel that they don't learn well, it often
affects their self-esteem significantly. As a result, many
young people will not only experience problems around
learning, but also self-esteem issues, emotional and
behavioral problems, social skills problems, anxiety,
depression, or family issues. Virtually every aspect of
their life is affected.
Our public schools, unfortunately, often work from the
assumption that a student already knows how to learn and
therefore focus on teaching content rather than on the
process of learning. Most students learn as they go along,
figure out what works, and modify their strategies as they
go. Many, though, have never learned effective strategies
for learning; they often use strategies that take a long
time and simply do not work, and they struggle in school.
Students need strategies for how to learn, not just what to
learn so they don't have to continue to struggle.
The most effective learning strategy for academics is a
visual learning strategy. Tasks such as learning spelling
words, math facts, memorizing facts and data and learning
vocabulary words are learned more easily and quickly if the
student learns them visually. When students learn visually,
they tend to be more interested and learn quickly and
easily. When they don't learn visually, they tend to
struggle. The very first thing to address is the student's
perception of his ability to learn and use his mind

Once he realizes that he has the ability to use his mind
effectively, then we can teach him precise, effective
strategies for how to learn. When he has effective tools for
learning, it dramatically enhances his perception of his own
ability to be a successful student, his performance in
school, his self-esteem and relationships with friends and
family, just to name a few.
When a young person understands
(for many, for the first time in their lives) that he IS
intelligent, that he IS a good student, that he CAN learn
easily and that there is nothing "wrong" with him, that has
a dramatic impact on every aspect of his life! Now we can
move on to teaching strategies for mastering thoughts and
emotions and taking action on goals.
