But this desire to learn is fragile. It needs nurturing. When a child finds it difficult to learn or encounters too many failures their desire to learn disappears. They become unmotivated and they underachieve in school. These students are often labelled as, ‘lazy’, ‘uncaring’, and ‘stubborn’.
I will tell you a secret. I have worked with hundreds of underachieving ‘lazy’ students and I have yet to find one who is lazy or unmotivated!
Underachievers are in fact, highly motivated, just not in the ways you want them to be!
No amount of rewards or punishments make a difference. You have probably torn your hair out looking for ways to motivate and inspire your child but nothing seems to work.
The key to unlocking your child’s motivation lies in understanding why your child is unmotivated, what kind of underachiever your child is, and using actions specifically designed to deal with the situation.
Remember, motivation is the first stage of the learning process. Without motivation your child will never even start on the path that leads to learning!
Stop trying ways that just don’t work. Stop using threats or rewards. Stop telling them they will end up in a job asking, ‘Do you want fries with that?”
Start reigniting your child’s motivation to learn so that he or she can tap into their unused potential and awaken their inner dormant desire to achieve.
This program shows you how.
Imagine not having to nag your child to start their homework, not having to worry about unfinished assignments, not having to use endless rewards or threats.
Imagine a child who comes home eager to start their schoolwork. A
Imagine a child who looks forward to each school day. A child who might grumble a little about the work they have to do (who doesn’t?) but is willing to do it without any fuss or reminders.
The good news is, when you know EXACTLY what to do, how to do it, and what really works then you start seeing REAL RESULTS.
So, what is the Awaken Motivation© program?
It is a program based on the work of Dr. Harvey Mandel, a clinical psychologist, who describes different types of underachievers, why they lack motivation and what parents can do about it.
There are four main types of underachiever, the Coasters who are happy to just get by, the Worriers who are too tense to work well, the Downer who is sad and has no energy, and the Non-conformers who underachieves because they want to.
Your child will belong to one or more of these categories.
Each category requires different ways to increase a child’s motivation.
In my Awaken Motivation© program works because once we have discovered why your child is unmotivated and how this manifests itself in everyday life I can guide you through the specific steps that help you reignite your child’s love of learning.
In this five step process you will –
Understand why your child is not willing to learn so you can recognize warning signs.
Define which of the four main types of underachiever relates to your child so we know what specific support your child needs.
Be guided through the program that helps you make small changes that lead to a big outcome.
Be provided with easy to use strategies that fit your lifestyle so you and your child avoid stress.
