You don’t need to know everything to help your child at school. In fact, the National Coalition for Parent Involvement in Education found that all involved parents, despite their background and level of income, can help their children to perform better in school. We have teamed up with a girls prep school to explore the ways that you can be more involved in your child’s education.
As parents, we often hear ‘can you help me with my homework!’ Whilst you can offer support as much as you can do in terms of the learning aspect, you can also remind your child that they’re doing a great job and celebrating their successes can encourage them to take pride in their work. Not only is it a great source of motivation but it can also help to boost their confidence and self-belief to dream bigger and shine brighter.
Asking your child to teach you about what they’ve learned at school is a great way to find out about their school curriculum and get an insight into how they’re doing. This allows you to work with your child to help them improve on what they’re struggling with and continue the learning process at home.
Being present while your child does their homework can make sure that they actually complete it, allowing them to solidify their classwork and ask you for help if they need it.
Reading helps to grow vocabulary, knowledge and can help your child to improve on their comprehension to learn and understand new concepts better. Aside from these obvious reasons it can help to improve your child’s brain health and memory – an essential for retaining information and performing well on tests.
Displaying a positive attitude to learning can help your child to view education as fun and exciting as opposed to being boring and time-consuming.
