Parents play a big role in helping their children to be confident and enthusiastic learners by encouraging them to believe they can do well at school, and that trying hard and doing their best is important. Parents can also assist their child with organisation, navigating challenges and solving problems.
Here are some tips and ideas about the little things families can do in their daily routines to help their child's learning.
Aim high – believe in your child's potential
When a parent holds high aspirations for their child, they do better at school.
Showing your child that you believe in them and their ability to do their best at school is really powerful – it builds children's confidence and helps them see themselves as someone who can do well.
Research shows that what parents believe about their child's ability to do well at school is linked to their actual achievements.
Praise your child for trying hard (not just for doing well) and celebrate little successes.
Aim high – let your child know you think that learning and school are important and that trying hard matters.
Discuss children's dreams for the future with them–this is important at any age! Talk to your child often about their hopes or ideas for the future.
