When in Doubt, Choose Empathy
If you feel like you've tried everything to get your child back on track with distance learning with no success, chances are your child is not in the right headspace for problem-solving yet. When brains are stressed, they are in "fight or flight" mode, and their thinking and reasoning skills are neurologically not available. Just think of the last time you were seriously stressed — were you at peak cognitive performance to solve problems and dig into tasks that require deep focus? Probably not.
The fastest way to get your child to work with you may be to hold off on problem-solving and start with empathy. When we say things like, "It makes sense you feel this way" and "I get why this is so hard for you," it brings your child back to a baseline level of calm to problem-solve with you.
