How To Be More Involved With Your Child’s Education

[Collaborative Post]

Believe it or not, research has found that the more involved a child’s parents are with their education, the more likely they are to succeed in school. With that said, you’re probably wondering what more you can do for your youngster. A private school in London have put together the following advice to help get your started.

Being involved doesn’t necessarily mean you have to sit down with your child every night and help them with their maths equations; although this will definitely be useful from time to time. It can also be the simple things, like providing your child with the right stationery or a quiet study space to work in within your home. Chances are, you’re probably doing lots to help your child without even realising it.

Make sure you and your child get regular one to one time, in which you can ask them how they’re getting on with their school work and if there’s anything that’s bothering them. Knowing that you’re there to listen will be a huge relief to your child, especially during times of stress. Be sure to ask them open ended questions to encourage them to open up, as questions that can be answered with a simple yes or no won’t get them talking.

It’s also important to communicate regularly with your child’s teachers, either through written communication or even in face to face meetings. Always attend parents’ evening and other school events such as sports day or school plays, as this will show your child that you care about how they’re getting on at school.

Essentially, the more of an interest you show in your child’s education, the more likely they are to try and impress you with their good grade. Make sure to praise them regularly, but not just when they do well; you should also express your pride whenever you see your child try hard as this is what’s truly important.
