Promote a positive attitude to their school

Encourage your child to learn, and support the school and teachers in helping your child in this.

  • Show respect for their teachers by words and actions, eg thanking them for teaching your children
  • Avoid blaming teachers, or the school, if your child is struggling with work or friendships

Tips:

Link up with other FIFO families

If you do FIFO work, find other FIFO families in your area to share experiences and to give and receive support.

Tips:

They’re only young once

Remember that work will always be there, but your children won't.
