After much research and lots of practice over the last 2 years, we think that there are 5 key questions that you can ask to cement any learning experience. In today’s hack, we share these questions with you.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”why is this important?” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Whether you homeschool or not, day to day life provides constant learning experience and as parents, we can help our children by creating moments of learning to help our children learn and improve their life education.

So it could be a film they have just watched, an incident at school, or a family situation, there is a learning experience in there somewhere, and the sequence of questions below will help you embed this learning in your children.

The questions work best if asked in your own conversational style, we don’t always ask them and we don’t always ask all five, we go with what we feel to be most appropriate. So, if there is a learning experience that you are keen to embed in your children you now have the framework to do so.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”so how to teach our kids?” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]

Q1: What was good about that?

This helps to frame their experience in a positive light.

Q2: What did you learn?

This helps them to think about the situation as a learning experience (or if it was a lesson of sorts, process the learning for the second time).

Q3: How would you do it better next time?

This teaches kids that things aren’t set in stone and that any outcome can be altered by a change in strategy, thought or action. We found that this really frees the kids up from the fear of getting small stuff wrong. (If the situation didn’t involve them you could ask ‘how could it be dine better next time? or If it were you in that situation how would you do it?)

Q4: How else could you use that in your life?

So now we are asking them to translate their thoughts into a situation in their own life. This encourages creative thinking and gives them their own blueprint for future possible actions.

Q5: How will this solution help you?

The final question is intended to attach positive feelings towards this new course of action, which helps embed the learning at a conscious and unconscious level.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_custom_heading text=”the daily lifehack summary” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left|color:%23ce879f” google_fonts=”font_family:Oswald%3A300%2Cregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466080745973{border-top-width: 3px !important;border-right-width: 3px !important;border-bottom-width: 3px !important;border-left-width: 3px !important;padding-top: 40px !important;padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;background-color: #ce879f !important;border-left-color: #58646d !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #58646d !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #58646d !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #58646d !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;}”]
