10 Ways to Get Involved in Your Child’s Education Spend some time learning together. Sit with your child during homework and transform something “boring” into a bonding experience. Tweak your attitude when talking about certain subjects or school in general. Try to keep a positive attitude. Read to and with your children. Take turns reading before bed, in the car, during homework, or whenever works best for you. Make everyday activities reinforce educational concepts. This could include reading recipes while baking, learning about science while playing outside, or engineering strong structures out of Lego blocks. Join a parent group with other parents to affect positive change. Monitor your child’s schoolwork. Doing this regularly creates opportunities for you to congratulate, help, and encourage. Keep open lines of communication between you and your child’s teacher to help them better understand their mood or behavior at school. Prioritize parent-teacher conferences. They are one of the best ways to ask questions and raise concerns. Don’t forget to take notes! Try supplemental activities. Be mindful of your child’s learning style to help ensure that they learn as effectively as possible. Volunteer at your child’s school. Let your child’s teacher know when you are free and for how long. Then get excited!
