How to improve child's general knowledge

Previous Next

Encourage Reading beyond curriculum

Reading is a great activity, not only to improve language and comprehension, but also general knowledge. One misconception that many parents have is that their child needs to read only encyclopedias to improve G.K. Reading a variety of fictional books also help introduce new concepts, ideas and words that improve general knowledge But what if your child is not a book worm? You can still make him join a library or you read books with your child where he gets to learn and discuss a variety of books with other kids. He may not necessarily read all the books, but knowing about different characters and story themes is sure to invoke his interest in the world of learning.

Dining Table Debates

Encourage discussions at home. On dining table, during meals or tea-time. Many kids with excellent general knowledge have parents who themselves take a lot of interest in world events and involve themselves in detailed discussions over a variety of topics.  Talk about the important events happening around, encourage your child to be a part of the discussions in their own capacities and clear their doubts and answer their questions. A family where ideas are exchanged freely is a great opportunity for kids with open minds.
