As your child starts the new school year, it’s the best time to set the tone for positivity. As Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center says, a bit of “mental preparation” can help children and parents kick things off on a good note. “We tell families all the time that attitude has a major impact on how a child views school,” she says. “Parents who communicate with their children about school and its importance and embrace an optimistic demeanor about how to tackle challenges along the way have a tremendous influence on their children’s outlook as well.”
How can you help your child make this a great school year from the start? Here are five tips:
Parents can make such a big difference in how their children approach the school year by being confident and enthusiastic from the outset. “Even if your child has had some difficult times in school, you can still start things off with a positive attitude,” Huntington says. “Children are perceptive—if they sense optimism from their parents, it rubs off. Make this school year great by encouraging your child to put the best foot forward and committing to supporting your child however he or she needs it.”
