Procrastination is the act of avoiding tasks that require immediate attention to do more pleasant activities. To be fair, we all have delayed those things that need be done for five more minutes of relaxation, however when this becomes a common practice, it can create serious difficulties.

There are many reasons for procrastination, perfectionism, lack of confidence and the anxiety to please others can all stop you feeling as if you can get anything done. Fortunately, there are many things to help your children get back on track and at The Tutoring Center in Roseville, we would like to share some useful ideas.

Create a Schedule

Time management is fundamental to avoid procrastination, so teach your children the value of their time. Create a schedule together and focus on tasks that require immediate attention or that are more difficult, and don’t forget to establish how much time they will need to finish each activity. 

Set Achievable Goals

If an activity seems too difficult, you can break it into smaller and more workable chunks. This way your children will be able to track their progress, which will motivate them to keep working. 

Rewards

Nagging your children will rarely work. Instead, reward their progress, even if they didn’t achieve everything they wanted to. A small treat, a break, or anything that motivates your children will help to reinforce the good behavior you want to instill. 

Mistakes

Teach your children that there is no such thing as perfection and help them learn from their mistakes; fear of failure shouldn’t prevent your children from even trying. 

Remember that grading can represent stress for many students, which can cause them to avoid work for fear of failure, so be sure to read this previous post containing helpful information on handling test anxiety.
