***** Some Tips for Better Parenting *****

  • We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he/she is someone today.

  • The school will teach children how to read, but the environment of the home must teach them what to read.

  • Try not to compare your child's progress with another's as no two children develop alike.

  • Read to your child every day. It builds his/her vocabulary and develops an early interest in reading.

  • Illumination is not in the answer you give your child but in the questions he/she asks. Encourage him to question.

  • Show interest in your child with a full heart and mind. Spend time with them by being present physically, emotionally and mentally.

  • When your child wants to say or show you something, stop what you are doing and pay attention. It is important to spend frequent, small amounts of time with your child, doing things that you both enjoy!

  • Children learn by imitating. Most often, they will follow your lead in how they deal with anger, solve problems, and work through difficult feelings.

  • As parents, is there anything that you would like the teacher to know, that would help them serve your child better, such as particular study habits or other abilities or needs?

  • Watch your children's selected shows with them. Do this at least once to determine the level of violence and the attitudes of the main characters in the shows

  • Limit your own viewing. Set an example for your kids by only watching specific programs

  • “If you have to tell your child the same thing repeatedly before they respond, then you are training them to ignore you.”

  • Empower your kid to contribute; to the best of their ability; by encouraging them to do so. Additionally, ensure that you part-take in your kid’s school and other activities


  • As parents, these are small steps that you could take to develop and encourage motor skills/writing skills in your child:

  1. Drawing lines and shapes. Give enough time for your child to enjoy this activity. Pencils, pens, crayons-any of these can be used for this activity.

  2. Pointing to words as you read them in stories/books/charts will help them understand the link between spoken words and written text.
