Helpful children educational tips
Have an after school schedule for your child. Your child should know exactly what he or she should be doing once school ends. This schedule should include homework, house chores, time for reading, time for dinner, as well as leisure time.
Regularly check student progress by meeting with teachers. Meeting with teachers during report card conferences and parent/teacher night is not sufficient. It does not have to be a face to face meeting. An easy way of communicating with teachers is via email. Obtain the email addresses of all of your child’s teachers and maintain communication through that avenue. Teachers show favor to students whose parents have a positive attitude and are proactive in their education. Besides, parents must be aware of where their child stands in comparison to state and national averages.
Set High Standards:
Often, parents prioritize activities such as sports, dance lessons, and music over education. The problem with that is the child will also prioritize things in the same manner. The child will become so consumed with these activities that it will affect his/her education negatively. Parents must be aware of this and establish education as the child’s priority. Besides setting education as the top priority, parents should never accept or ignore poor grades or bad behavior. Set high standards and never settle for less. Research shows that positive reinforcement through praise and encouragement works wonders as a motivational tool when a child succeeds. An increase in involvement when a child fails is significant in helping your child get better grades.
