Do you want to support your child at school? Being a parent, you obviously feel responsible to supporting your child’s education.
Besides achieving success at school, a parent’s involvement also helps your children to flourish in other areas of life.
However, if you can’t find a perfect way to execute your responsibility, here are a few clues for you to ignite ideas of helping your child through his/her education.
Set aside some time to talk with your child every day in an interactive and calm manner. Make them realize that you have a genuine interest not only in their school work, but also in their likes and dislikes and hobbies.
Establish scheduled homework time
Regular time for homework every day, either in the afternoon or evening in a quiet place encourages your child to study well. Be supportive of your child in doing homework if they have problems.
This doesn’t mean that you should do the homework for them: doing this will only decrease your child’s interest and their confidence in achieving goals.
Discuss school events
Other than just sitting at a desk and learning, there is the potential every day for a new event to influence your child. Don’t interrogate; rather interact and ask them about what happened in their school day.
Do you know children who read with their parents at home perform better at school? Make your children realize how important reading and education is in their lives. Let them see you read, which will certainly encourage them to read.
