Display integrity, use wisdom, build character and discipline with love.
Here are some ways you can get involved in your child's school:
Attend parent-teacher conferences with specific questions you want to ask.
Assist in creating and/or offer your services to before- and after-school programs.
Help develop, visit, or offer services to your school's study/tutor center.
Let school staff know your availabilty to volunteer (days, times, and how often).
Assist your child's teacher in the classroom or on field trips when you are able.
Here are some ways you can get involved in your child's education:
- Make dinner time a forum to talk about what your kids are learning at school. Ask "what did you learn" instead of "what did you get."
Cheer for academic achievements like you would for sporting victories. Show off school papers and art work in a special place to build your children's self-esteem.
Talk about your own mistakes to send the message that it's OK for your children to make them, too; emphasize what you've learned from your mistakes.
Limit TV time and read with your kids. Studies show that the most critical activity for building knowledge is reading aloud to children.
If you can't be home when your kids get home, look for quality after school programs; ask teachers or counselors for recommendations.
