Here are some of the tricks that parents can do for kids to get excited about studying:

Keep the kids reminded

Their schedule, when it is new, can be easily forgotten. However, kids nowadays will never forget to look at their phones. 

Thus, the trick to reminding them of what to do next is to make their schedule as their phones' wallpaper. This trick may sound too simple but could be useful to some.

Give kids a reason to get up from bed.

Going to school early in the morning is one daunting task for kids and even for parents.

For parents, aside from nagging their kids to get up, giving them something to look forward to every morning can do the trick. There is no best way to do this trick but for parents to prepare an exciting breakfast.

While parents are on it, they can also make meals healthy enough to keep them energized all day.

Pack some mints for kids

According to studies, mint can help in improving concentration and stimulating the brain.

Giving kids something like a sweet mint may look like they are given a treat when it is a way to help them study.

Parents may choose to pack mints for their kids, along with their school lunch.

Choose background music.

Another way to keep kids focused is through music. Quiet instrumental music like the classical ones can help kids focus on studying.

It may seem like you want some quiet time when you are already tricking them not to get distracted.

Ask kids to take a walk.

Walking is a great way to jumpstart the brain. Thus, before kids start studying, parents may ask them to walk outside for ten minutes.

It serves two purposes: letting kids have some time outside the house and jumpstarting their brain.

If kids can walk going to school, they may also do so in the morning.

Always take the kid's side.

Although having a child who scores high in an exam is a good thing, not all kids can do it.

When parents take the side of their children, kids will not be pressured into studying so much, and instead, they will realize that they have to be responsible for their studies.
