How can I help my child…. learn better? …study? …do better at school?

The answer isn’t simple - there are a vast number of theories of how we learn; some of which contradict each other and others that complement each other. These range from Pavlov (behaviourist), to Piaget’s (cognitive) and Vygostky’s (social learning); to name a few. You could spend days sifting through evidence based theories of learning, and only touch the surface.
