Welcome to Parents as Partners
Now that students are progressing through this New Year,
what is the next step parents can take to help their
children succeed? Get involved.
Top Five Ways Parents can Help Children Succeed
Have children attend school daily. Even though students
can make up missed work, there is no substitute for
being present for instruction.
Designate a place for studying or reading. Routine is
important. Make it a habit to dedicate a time daily for
homework or reading.
Take time to keep in touch with teachers. Visit with
your child's teacher more than twice a year for student
conferences. Teachers appreciate your interest.
Teach your child behavior character. Children need to
know what is acceptable social behavior is. Children
will grow up in a world where there are consequences for
unlawful behavior. Give them a head start.
Communicate with your child everyday. Ask your child
about his/her day at work. Be present in the
conversation. Children need to know you are listening
and care about what they say.
