Make use of time before school

Take your kids to school, at least occasionally.

  • The walk or drive to school with your child is a good opportunity to talk
  • See where they sit in the classroom, meet their friends and spend a bit of time with them


Praise your kids – often

Criticism should be vastly outweighed by praise in communicating with your children.

Being an example of resilience.

Your kids will pay attention and base their behaviour on what they see and observe, so it's important to model good behaviour when handling the good and the bad in your life.
