Help Your Child Become A More Successful Learner

by Elizabeth Hamilton, M.Ed.

Here are some simple ideas that you can do at home to help your child become a more successful learner.

Build Self Esteem

  1. Be supportive, encouraging and positive with your children. Children who have support, who are encouraged and who understand the importance of education are more likely to succeed at school.

  2. Build your children's self-esteem by letting them know that they are capable worthy human beings and that you know they will be successful students.

  3. Give your children positive feedback in all areas of their lives. Children learn better if they know what they are doing right.

  4. Use encouragement and positive feedback frequently and criticize seldomly.

  5. Support children in their school and extracurricular activities such as homework, special projects, sports, clubs and hobbies.

  6. Let children know that you hold them accountable for their behavior and their decisions.

  7. Let children know the consequences their actions will result in, both positive and negative.

  8. Give your children responsibilities and provide positive feedback about their performance.

  9. Encouragement and recognition reinforce learning and make children more successful at it.

  10. Praise children when they succeed and help them when they are having problems. Describe what you are proud of and ask them what they are proud of.
