It has been almost 3 years since the covid outbreak, during which students missed their campus learning opportunity, and children’s all-round development was hampered. If we don’t face such issues and address them properly, their learning performance and academic grades will be significantly impacted. The new “Catalytic Parenting”, a brand-new education method, is expected to reduce the impact of class suspensions on children. By mapping out a “Growth Tasks trajectory” for children and having an early setup from the “ASAP” perspective, it can help shape children’s crisis management abilities and personality, enable them to easily deal with learning difficulties, and bring about significant improvement in their academic grades and learning impact.
Learning crisis in post-covid children
Multiple class suspensions over the past three years forced children to study at home. Infrequent contact and interaction with peers have also affected children’s social skills, reduced their mobility, and negatively affected their mental health. Children have been told by their parents or schools to retain a lot of knowledge in order to keep up with class progress. This negatively affected their ability and performance in class and made them feel anxious. Parents face unprecedented pressure, placing both of them in a state of emotional tension. To address the above issues, it is important to develop a new teaching philosophy to prevent any problems that may arise as children get older.
“Catalytic Parenting” to solidify foundation
“Catalytic Parenting” has exactly responded to what the current era needs – to provide parents and children with a more pragmatic and stress-free sustainable education plan. Children are able to develop their personalities, talents, problem-solving skills and interests in the growth period between 3 and 12 years. We should help them achieve optimal growth experiences during this time. Therefore, “Catalytic Parenting” is devised to pave the “Growth Tasks trajectory” for children, with teaching content tailored to three different age groups (3 to 6 years old; 6 to 8 years old; and 8 to 12 years old) to tackle different “Tasks”. Children’s reactions to the “Growth Tasks”, which affect their motivation, engagement, and development of their “affective domain”, will impact their motivation. The most challenging stage for children is between 3 and 6 years of age, when they will be faced with primary school interview challenges. To improve their interview success rates, we should help them develop their personality and teach them how to manage crisis situations.
Primary school is the first major challenge that children will have to face in their lives. In response to their growth needs between 3 to 6 years old, “Catalytic Parenting” enables all-rounded development and strengthens learning ability through the “ASAP” perspective. The “ASAP” approach is broken down into four skills: Adaptability and Social Skills, as well as the ability to work under pressure and problem-solving skills. This approach would help children learn how to adapt to their environment, solve problems in their own way, and use their intelligence to master problem solving techniques. Children who have not been to pre-school or have lived in sheltered environments can be taught to handle problems independently if they are nurtured using “ASAP”. Their ability to process and execute information will be greatly enhanced.
Growth problems can be solved
Hong Kong’s grade-driven education system discourages students from developing other abilities. This is combined with the effects of class suspension under the pandemic. Children are not properly nurtured in the areas of academic, psychological, as well as physical development. In order to catch up with children’s growth progress, rather than prioritizing their academic results, it is more important to stimulate their learning motivation and shape them to develop a better-than-peer learning ability, in order to alleviate the pressure from the parents and the children. “Catalytic Parenting” is proven to be an effective and sustainable education plan. Only by adopting “Catalytic Parenting”, parents can truly let their children enjoy the outcome of a comprehensive, efficient and pragmatic education.
