Your child learns most of his/her life lessons from you, including education. As a parent, you should think that “what your child has learned from you today”.
If you don’t have an answer, think now to spend time with your child for giving good education and ethics of life. You have to dedicate time and effort from your side.
Becoming a teacher! If you are a parent, then you are a teacher for your child. As a parent, you have to teach values, beliefs, issues in every family and how to react in any difficult situation.
You should also teach positive and negative things of life, how to get out from the difficult situation on their own, how to share things, whom to believe, and how to help others. Other people also contribute to your child’s development.
Get involved! Many parents think they are involved in child education by selecting a school, dropping and picking their child from school. But, it’s not true. You should involve in their studies.
You have to meet your child’s teachers and friends regularly to know what is going on. You should realize that your involvement in your child’s education is as important as any other areas of their lives.
Be aware! Your involvement should be from school’s perspective. Become a teacher and find out what is taught in the school. Check their note books and read every thing that is taught in the classroom. You should be aware of your child’s studies regularly and how your child is performing.
Talk to your child about their school when they are in good mood to explain. When you involve in their school activities, there are less chances of your child becoming absent to the school.
Be visible! Many parents are seen only at school events. But, when you have decided to involve in your child’s education, volunteer some of your time at school. Attend the parents’ meetings regularly.
If you are visible regularly, teachers can meet and discuss if any problem arises. If you cooperate with them, they will not hesitate to discuss any matter with you.
Child success! Parents should involve in learning activities, homework assignments, and making the children read materials and instructions provided by teachers. When you work and spend time for your child, your child can become success in the education.
Become your child’s advocate! Children in young age cannot become their own advocates.
You have to become your child’s advocate to fight back their rights, save from dangerous situations, back their pursuits, become their patron by supporting their talents, speak on their behalf and sponsor their efforts at achieving success.
Becoming an advocate means becoming a teacher and making your child to learn all those things that they are unaware of. When you become advocate, your child learns the same things and protects themselves and their children.
Becoming your child’s teacher needs spending time and effort for your child, but it gives fruitful result at the end.
