As a parent, we all want the best for our children.
We want them to be healthy. We want them to be happy. We want them to be successful.
So as the school holidays come to an end, we get their school clothes ready, we pack their school bag, make their lunch, fill their water bottle, and then give them a kiss for good luck before they head off for the beginning of the new school year.
As they merge into the throng of boisterous kids, we hope they’ll meet new friends and strengthen old friendships. We hope they’ll have fun and like their new teacher. We hope they’ll learn everything they need to know, and then more.
We put a lot of trust in our children’s teachers and we expect the school to do the right thing by our kids.
It’s also easy to blame the education system when our kids don’t perform to the standards we’ve set them, but how often do we put that same trust and expectation upon ourselves as parents?
Irrespective of what country you live in or what school your children attend, one of the biggest impacts you can have on your child’s success is your attitude as a parent toward their education.
On my latest article for Kiddipedia, I discuss how you can teach your kids the secrets of success and give them the best start to life.
