Ever been in a traffic jam? Congestion, irritation, frustration.
If we had only listened to Google Maps, the highway would have been a much better route. Smooth, easy-going and enjoyable.
Teaching our children can have many "roadblocks" and traffic jams, especially if we're not in tune with our child's learning style. We may feel like they're not grasping certain concepts, unable to pay attention or just generally checked out and not enjoying learning.
It's not WHAT, it's HOW.
If your child has struggled with learning in the past, it may have had more to do with the way the material was presented - the HOW - rather than the material itself.
In other words, it's not so much the skills and content of utmost importance, but the route we take to get there.
Unlocking our child's learning style helps us to determine that route.
Everyone has a preferred learning style that highlights how we best process, store and recall information.
