My friend's daughter is 7 years old and she attend the same school with my son. They have just finished their exam. Her daughter failed all her 3 subjects and she kept asking me how to help her daughter because she is a slow learner. Can anyone here help me up so I can help her. My son did not do well too but luck thing that he passed his exam of course not with flying colors but a 52/100. just passed though but glad he passed. Now I'm trying to find ways to help her.

Hi, This just reminds me of the proverb "Slow and steady wins the race". Anyhow it is know by the scientist that those slow learners keep what they learn in mind so well also. It is the memory power that is to polished. I hope there are better ways to increase the memory power. Just consult a child specialist or memory therapist they helps a lot in study problems.

Well, it's a good idea to start good study habits while she's young. Ask your friend to help her daughter review everyday and go over things she doesn't understand. Games and demonstrations are also great, get her interested and she'll want to learn.

I guess all you can do is maybe give them a little extra tuition to try and help them. But I must say everyone is different and everyone reaches the want to learn at different ages, I was very slow and unfortunately I didn't get the want to learn until after i had left school then i was hungry to learn, so I think just show them some interest and maybe help them when you can.
