If children put as much energy into learning as they do playing, it would certainly speed up the learning process. Unfortunately, most don’t. Many would rather spend their time sharpening their athletic skills. The reason is simple. Children look upon play and physical activities with interest and enthusiasm, while activities of the mind tend to be perceived as being burdensome and boring.

Parents can change this. They can encourage both play and learning with equal emphasis. And, they can create an environment in the home in which children develop positive attitudes about learning. Attitudes likely to be reflected in both an eagerness to learn and the desire to get good grades.
