3 Easy Ways To Kickstart A Successful School Year

With the new school year fast approaching (or already starting for some) it is important for parents to set up a strong foundation for their child to have a successful school year. The more involved parents are in their child’s education the more likely the child will succeed not only this year, but for years to come. Here are a few easy ways to get started!

1. Create a peaceful home environment- Kids need to feel safe and calm after dealing with all of the social and educational pressures they experience every day. Work to keep your home a stress free environment for them by responding calmly to some of the family stresses that arise and keeping noise volume to a minimum.

2. Encourage your child to read- Set time to read with your child every day. Make it into a fun and exciting activity that your child looks forward to. Reading is a great way to increase vocabulary, language, and intelligence skills.

3. Partner with your child’s educators- As soon as the school year begins meet your child’s teacher. Attend parent-teacher conferences and routinely communicate with teachers to stay up to date on what they are learning in class and your child’s progress.
