Month 3 - Enthusiasm

Parents are a child’s first educators but being a parent can be so challenging! We try our best to encourage our children to learn all the time, when doing daily tasks like tying shoelaces, tidying their room or learning to ride a bike. Children can find these things tricky and they also require lots of patience (for parents and kids!).

Often though, the child’s problem is not with the actual skill but in their attitude towards it. They may give up too easily, struggle to focus or be scared to give things a go. We often feel frustrated because we KNOW our child can do it if only they changed their attitude!  This is where the capability approach comes in.
