Just think about it. If you can learn in the way that is best for you it works better, right? I know it does for me and I have seen it work very well for my son and other boys as well.
Take some time to read about the different learning styles and see what you think. I know there are ways to help your boys learn by using them.
I have written posts on each boys’ learning style with information on how to tell which ones your boy leans toward, and what you can do to help him learn.
Learning styles are for everyone. Since we focus on boy’s learning here I have taken the information I have learned about them along with my personal experiences, and tweaked them to fit what is effective for boys.
Learning is personal so you will have to work with your boy to see what works best for him.
