How to make KooBits a part of your Busy Child’s Daily Routine?

In today’s fast-paced world, our children lead increasingly busy lives.

Balancing school, extracurricular activities, and family commitments can be overwhelming, leaving minimal time for additional learning activities. 

Even though practicing KooBits for just 20 minutes a day consistently can lead to significant improvements in school grades, it can be tough to carve out this time daily. 

We interviewed the parents of KooBits’ top users and compiled the practical ways they use to fit KooBits into their child’s daily routines, despite the demanding schedules. 

Communicate expectations with your child 

Tell your child what is expected of them when they come back home.

Work with them to form a routine wherein it’s very clear what they are supposed to do.

You can even consider sticking a checklist on the wall with the activities they are to complete. 

Mdm Oei Ting, mom of a primary 4 boy, Evan, follows this principle:

“What we tell him is, after school, first thing is to finish his homework first. If there’s any spelling he has to learn, then after that he has to do koobits. It’s part of his daily routine, so he does his i don’t know daily challenge or peer challenge.” 

Set bite-sized, achievable goals for your child

Bite-sized goals seem more achievable for kids, and hence are perfect to motivate them to get started.

As we all know, the first step is usually the hardest.

Start off with just 10-20 mins a day, or more precisely just 10 questions a day.

Many kids find it manageable to do that, vs a longer period of studying.

“He normally takes about half an hour to do those (daily challenges).. A little bit everyday is better rather than a long period of just sitting through 1 or 2 hours of studies.”, said Karen law, mom of a Primary 4 child, Ethan.

Encourage your child to do more when they feel it, and less when they don’t feel like it 

Motivation fluctuates. Just like we have days where we don’t feel like exercising, our kids too have good and bad days. 

As parents, it’s easier to work with our child than against them.

We can encourage them to do more questions when our kids are motivated, and less on more challenging days. 

Alex Tan, dad of Casey, a Primary 3 student says –

My request of him is other than doing daily challenges, he will also need to do both math and science at least one mission, minimum at least 10 questions. Everyday, including Saturday and sunday. Occasionally perhaps he has motivation or he feels like doing it, he will do more. Sometimes he might do more.” 

Make it rewarding for your child to practice 

Making learning a positive experience for our kids can set them up for a lifelong love of learning. 

While we communicate our expectations with them to practice daily and hold those boundaries, we can offer them rewards to celebrate them for following through on those commitments. 

Offer them TV time, reading time or family game time if they complete all the activities in their daily routine.

Even a word of encouragement goes a long way in making your child feel appreciated. 

Jasmine Phuang, mom of a Primary 5 boy says –

I did track(100 questions) using the koobits app. I said, after you do this, you can have some time to watch tv and play games. So if you do this everyday, just like daily exercise to do you have to build up the muscle.”
