The following suggestions are provided by the
National Parent Teacher Association
Build your children’s self-esteem. Listen to what they have to say and praise them for the things that they do well.
Encourage your children to talk about their feelings, accomplishments, and problems.
Be a positive role model for your children. Teach them right from wrong at an early age.
Tell your children it is all right to make mistakes, as long as they learn from them.
Allow your children to see you read daily (newspapers, books, etc.). Read stories aloud and tell them about your culture and heritage.
Show interest in your children’s school activities by helping them with their homework and getting to know their teachers.
Take your children to museums, the local library and other free educational and cultural events whenever possible.
Join the Parent Teacher Committee (PTC) or volunteer at your children’s school.
