Parents often ask what they can do to ensure their child achieves in the classroom. What follows are some tips that educators have come to agree upon as supportive activities in the quest for knowledge. First, routine is extremely important. Children should have a regular bedtime and morning schedule that supports learning. Also, children should read every day; read to parents, siblings, pets and neighborhood friends. Another consideration is that meals and snacks should be healthy. Take time to research diets that are believed to improve mental and physical health. Finally, make learning a part of your daily experience. Learn as a family; and set aside a quiet area for homework and study. Model a love of learning and your children will follow suit.
