Parents are part of the child’s life too!

Children can benefit from the collaborated efforts of parents and school teachers. When parents are not part of the decision making process of education in the classroom, they can feel isolated. It is also critical that feedback on the student’s positive performance be shared with parents and not just negative ones.
This episode of the podcast looks at some practical ways to bridge the gap between parents and teachers.

  1. Children crave active parents. I’m very hands-on with my child and she’ll be 2 in May. The staff at the day care at the YMCA tell me all the time how advanced, smart, and good my daughter is. They say she follows directions very well, loves to read books, her vocabulary is advanced. I think being at home with her during these 2 years and taking on freelance positions during this time, so that I can be with her has really helped. 🙂

    1. Sonyo, I am really happy to hear these positive things about your daughter. I can see that she would be a fine young person who will grow into adulthood to be a productive person. I am happy to know that you took the time off to be with her, as training at an early age is very important. It is true, that some parents because of working outside the house cannot be at home with their children during the course of the day, but even this being the case it is vital that when they are in the presence of their children, they spend quality time with them. This quality time means teaching and training them, just as you have done.
      Continue to do the good job you’re doing with your daughter all the best to you and her.
