Four Tips to Help Your Child Take Responsibility for Their Learning
While your child is a student, learning is her job. To do it well, she has to be an active learner—one who takes action instead of just listening. Encourage your child to:
- Be prepared. It’s not enough just to show up to class. It’s also important to get a good night’s sleep, eat a nutritious breakfast and complete assignments.
- Participate in discussions. Your child should ask questions, offer opinions and exchange ideas with others in her class.
- Stay organized. Help your child create a system for organizing assignments and other materials. Have her collect a few classmates’ phone numbers. If she misses a class, she can call to find out what she’s missed.
- Be persistent. Support your child as she tackles assignments and studies for tests. Show confidence in her ability. Let her know that her efforts will pay off!
