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:

Offer freedom with boundaries

As parents, you need to balance the need to keep your children safe with the impetus to encourage them to try new things and to learn about their world.

Activities:

Draw each other’s portrait

Draw a picture of your child, and ask them to do the same of you. Colour the pictures and then display them to the family.
