Raising kids who will excel in schools always start at home


Education is not limited to school classrooms; it is a continuous learning process for as long as we live. We get our first education through our parents or guardians at home. But while there are exceptionally smart kids who excel at schools, by which we can agree as the product of lots of factors, the way they are taught at such a very young age at home is crucial to the foundation of what will be the blueprint of their intellectual capacity to learn. Schools only help these kids to learn a little more, especially in the academic aspects, but learning is a built-in program stored in a child’s memory developed during the formative years of his or her first education; he or she has the common sense to deal with every problem as a result of that. I have listed down below and in random some of the key points that will most probably contribute to making a child reach his or her full intellectual potential:

Nobody knows the child better than the parents do; whatever a child is so curious at or love to explore, the parents must be there to nurture, guide, and protect such a gift of keen observing.

Kids must be taught by the parents on how to become effective, law-abiding citizens, and workers in the future.

The primary purpose of education is intellectual; high quality pre-schooling program should be introduced starting from the child’s first school: Home.

Parents and other members of the family should encourage or show a child (or every child) how to take responsibility for his or her own learning.

There should be a cooperative effort between the teachers, parents, and other people directly involve for the child’s continuous learning and in a positive way when the child starts to go to school.

It must be a parent’s goal to teach their children on how to learn to learn; to think, and solve problems.

Proper nutrition is important.

Help the child builds self-confidence.

    I've always been very active in my daughter's education. It's a challenge that I welcome.
    She is five years old now and reads to her peers.

    1. Thank you for dropping by, Julia. Parents have a very important role in educating their children. And while it's always fine for us to teach them how to count, teaching them what counts could be the best thing we could do for them.
