Today’s Parenting Tip:
This Parenting Tip is a reminder about things you can do to help your child get a good start at school this year.
Help your child think about school in terms of his special interests or talents.
- Explain how math connects to building things, if that is what she likes to do.
- Explain how much more he can learn about his special interest, if he is a good reader.
- Explain that he can play an instrument, take art classes, or be on a sports team at school.
If your child is going to daycare or preschool, talk about how you are glad he is learning to get along with other people. Give examples in your own life where getting along has helped you do things you love to do.
