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

Activities:

Attend the kids’ sports and other interests

Encourage your children in whatever sport and other interests they have chosen, by attending games and asking them questions.

Tips:

Have a shared parenting plan

Discuss and develop a plan with your children’s carer to handle issues that require your participation when the children are not with you.
