Be generous with praise
your child carefully and comment on the things that are done well. When
you see an area that needs improvement, find a positive way to talk
about it with your child.
Encourage "personal best"
your child by encouraging him or her to do the best in school and at
home. Remember, "personal best" does not mean "perfect", and learning is
not the same as high grades. Children, like adults, need the freedom to
make mistakes and to learn from them.
Make learning a priority
attitude toward school attendance, education and involvement in the
school makes a strong and lasting impression on your child. Show your
child, by example, that learning is a priority.
Show interest in school work
- Talk about school each day.
- Ask to see classwork.
- Have your child read aloud to you.
- Read to and with your child from a variety of material in your first language.
- Encourage your child to discuss new ideas and opinions.
- Show appreciation for good efforts.
