Daily schedules can be hard enough to get through, and when a child puts off his or her responsibilities, everyone suffers. But there are reasons behind your child’s procrastination, and they may surprise you. It’s true, sometimes children put off chores, finishing homework or other responsibilities simply because they don’t want to tackle them. Procrastination: It isn’t just for adults.
In fact, it’s a defense mechanism against stress and anxiety that often develops in childhood. Procrastination is not a character trait that parents would want their kids to develop. However, turning a blind eye to the symptoms of a budding procrastinator is very easy.
Because procrastination is part of the human experience. Most people procrastinate because they are not enthusiastic about a task, or because there’s no shortage of more interesting, exciting, or pressing things to do. There’s a common misconception that kids procrastinate because they are lazy or have low motivation.
While low motivation can be a contributing factor, there are many others, including: Lack of Relevance: Your child may not see the task as relevant to his or her current or future goals. Boredom: Some tasks just aren’t compelling. For instance, most kids don’t find cleaning their room to be a fun or engaging. Causes of procrastination among students include: Lack of motivation Low self-confidence Fear of failure Lack of understanding Trouble concentrating Perfectionism Low energy levels Poor organization skills. Procrastination is actually a coping skill that helps us handle negative emotions about a particular task.
When we say negative emotions, we mean things like worry, boredom, frustration, self-doubt, insecurity, and all kinds of other yucky stuff. There are also external reasons for procrastinating, such as distractions, excessive screen time, lack of materials or structure, people who are influencers, and parents who pester—or procrastinate themselves. And, that is only a sampling of WHY some children put off tasks or avoid them altogether. Procrastination can be learned, yes, but science also points to a genetic disposition. A 2014 study found that the tendency to procrastinate may come down to our genes — at least in part.
Interestingly, being a woman means having a greater tendency toward procrastination. Another reason why you might be procrastinating is because you’ve become distracted by little tasks. As useful as the internet can be, this is a trap we all can easily fall into when we’re working on a computer. Procrastination procrastinating, is an actual action that can sabotage people on their path to success.
It’s a chronic issue and a very serious problem that has had its origins in developmental growth. Procrastination is not something you just pick up one day, it’s something you adapt to your lifestyle.
