Identifying your Son's Learning Preference

11m | Dec 27, 2023

In this episode of the Raising Sons podcast, Dr. Shell discusses the importance of identifying a son's learning preference for successful academic engagement. Emphasis is put on the four primary learning styles - visual, auditory, read/write, and kinesthetic - and how most classroom environments lean towards visual/auditory learning, which might not cater to all students. Dr. Shell highlights that boys generally have a kinesthetic learning preference. She suggests various strategies a parent can implement at home to help their son follow his learning preference, ensuring his engagement with his studies. Dr. Shell outlines the use of quizzes, parent-teacher meetings, and personal observations to understand your son's learning preference. She also emphasizes the beneficial role of tutors and encourages parental involvement in homework, providing the needed academic support to your sons.
