How to Raise a Hardworking Child

A hardworking child makes for better development of skills, improved confidence and the willingness to help themselves in trickier areas of their studies. While school itself can feel like hard work for children, helping them with their studies, identifying their strengths and weaknesses and improving their confidence all help with their development. Here are some tips to try that this sixth form in Devon recommends.

Work on your child’s strengths and weaknesses

Highlighting what your child is good at versus what they tend to struggle with can give your child clear goals on where they can improve themselves and what to put their attention in. Having that understanding of their expertise can give them a better understanding of how they function and what can help them work harder to improve themselves in rewarding ways.

Show how proud you are of your child

Your child will require extra support and direction at many different times in their lives. As parents we should be important role models to help them feel motivated in their studies and to try their best. With that in mind, we should be showing how proud we are of our children, no matter what their struggles could be. If they know that they have someone in their corner they’re going to feel a lot more energised and ready to try lots of different activities, and overcome those struggles.

Make learning fun

Learning should always feel rewarding and engaging, and it will always make your child feel more motivated to pick up different skills if they can find the fun in what they’re learning That means your child should feel more motivated to work harder and achieve the results they’re looking for. Games, TV and films can all help children learn in different ways, try exploring them with your child each week.


Hardworking children can see the results in their studies as they get through school life, and it will be hugely valuable when they get further through their school development. GCSEs and A Levels are a big part of a student’s development that relies on dedication from each child. Instilling these skills early on helps your child grow up learning that they should put good work in to see the best in their exam results, future coursework and even in higher education.
