The most successful children know that their family supports them and shows an interest in their day to day school life. Establish routines at home. Children thrive on orderliness and adapt to classroom rules more easily. Talk to your child about what they are doing at school. Encourage them to discover things for themselves. Read! Read! Read! Studies show this is the single most important thing parents can do to help their children achieve. Do read with your child for 15 minutes each day. Have a place to keep all communications from school Remind them to pack their school bags with care. Help your child get organised to do homework. Make rules about homework. Decide with your child on a good time to do homework and stick to that schedule as much as possible. Try to keep noise down during study times.
