Parents aren’t always right!

Right?

Peter Rowsthorn in this video clip discusses how even though, from your perspective, you may think and believe you are doing the right thing but this may not be the case. It is important as a parent to keep an open mind and to engage in discussions when there is a difference in beliefs and to rationally and reasonably resolve them.

Tips:

Build confident kids through challenge

Encourage children to challenge themselves as they grow and learn, and celebrate milestones and successes.

Tips:

Plan your school involvement for the upcoming year

It’s the start of the school year for Australian schools, so they will be asking parents to volunteer their time for many roles, including serving on canteen, assisting teachers in the classroom, helping at working bees, etc. Sit down with your children and agree with them what you will volunteer for, and how often.
