Help Your Child Succeed in School

It is proven that students with parents active in their education perform better in school. Here are some steps you can take to improve results.

Time Matters

Spend quality time with your child. Make sure to eat at least one meal a day with the whole family together. Get together as a family as often as possible and decide together what you will do. Regulate TV time by allotting tickets worth 30 minutes each. At the end of the week, give a cash reward for any remaining tickets.

Reading Time

The more time you spend reading to and with your child, the more successful she will be. Help her start a home library by giving books as gifts. Read to your children at bath time. When your child reads aloud, use the rule of thumb. Have her read a page and count on her fingers the number of words she does not know. If she gets to her thumb, the book is probably to advanced for her to read on her own, though it may be ok to read it together.

Self-Esteem

Help your child feel good about herself. Compliment and encourage always. Brag about her to others and let her hear. Teach her about her family and ethnic history by taking her to see distant family members and sites. Ask her to make a book about herself. The more she knows about herself, the more confident she can be.

Responsible Living

If your child leaves things around without putting them up, instill discipline with a "black hole," a locked closet where you put things that are not where they should be. If a favorite toy or something your child needs is locked away for 24 hours, it will help remind her to put her things away. Have the whole family participate.
