Why It’s Important To Help Your Child Understand Their Limitations

Sometimes students can feel invincible. They have little concept of how much is too much and are willing to keep taking on extracurriculars, projects, work hours, volunteer hours, sports practice and more, until they are so spread thin that they can’t do any of it well. Or, they become overwhelmed and stressed with trying to manage their schedule and their to-do’s. Sometimes it is wise to help your child prioritize and understand there is only so much one person can take on.

How Many Hours in a Day?

A great way to start is by evaluating the hours in a day and what activities, homework, and jobs take up those hours. Don’t forget to plan for sleep, family time, and social time. Help your child develop a realistic picture of how much time they can devote to each activity and whether or not the will be able to give what it takes to succeed.

Needs and Wants

Then help your child prioritize. What do they absolutely need? A high GPA? Leadership roles? When they have their needs covered, help them think through their passions and the activities they want to give their time to. Will band and sports fit into the schedule? Can you study for the SAT and take on a volunteer shift at the clinic? You may have to help them weigh their options. Fortunately, with Mr. Test Prep’s methods, your child won’t have to choose between coursework and test prep. We provide test prep without any additional homework. We understand the pressure students face and don’t think it is helpful to heap on piles of test prep homework.

Lifelong Tools

Teaching your student to know when to “say no” is a powerful tool that will be useful throughout their lives. Many people never understand their limitations and are stretched beyond their limits because they cannot say no and prioritize their needs and wants. Working on this skill now with your child will not only help them excel, it will set them up with excellent lifelong skills for planning and prioritizing.
