When you teach your children about the difference between right and wrong, help them learn to listen to their conscience.
Remember intelligence is not fixed: Effort and persistence when facing challenges are important characteristics of a successful student. Tell your child, “smart is not what you are; smart is what you work to become.”
Start family traditions and rituals such as family service projects, game nights, seasonal outings, or family meetings.
When kids have a good start to the school year and settle in well to school, they tend to be more interested in school and doing their best. Help your kids get a good start by being an involved parent.
Forget your worries sometimes and try to concentrate only on your kids.
Create a homework spot. Ideally you should find a place where you can sit right next to your child. You can pay bills, do work, or read while your child studies.
Say more positive things to your family than negative ones.
Ask your children what they like and don’t like about their daily routines. Together figure out changes to improve them.
Find a way to celebrate the first day—or first week—of school. By making it a celebration, you’re showing your kids that you value their education.
