When parents are involved in their child’s education, they can help support their child’s learning and development skills. However, sometimes it can be difficult for parents to find ways that they can engage in their child’s education. Here are some tips for parents to help support their children’s learning.

Embrace Technology

Using technology as a tool can help parents engage with teachers and can bridge the gap between home and school. The more parents are equipped with the tools and resources, the better they can keep up-to-date with their child’s learning progression.

Create a Learning Schedule

Setting a daily schedule that includes dedicated time for learning is known to help children understand consistency and create a sense of stability. Besides regular school work, integrating educational apps with interactive tools can also help your child’s learning goals. However, it’s important to monitor screen time to make sure there is a healthy balance between online and offline activities.

Read Together

Reading is crucial in a child’s learning journey. Reading aloud to your child on a regular basis and encouraging them to read independently will only build their comprehension skills. It’s also a good idea for parents to engage in discussions about the characters and themes of the books to help their child gather an understanding of the book’s storyline.

Positive Reinforcement

Many parents only hear from their child’s school when there’s a problem or concern. However, it’s important for parents to hear that their child is doing well in class and understand what is being taught. Knowing your child’s progress and achievements can make a big difference in supporting their learning journey. Remember to acknowledge and celebrate your child’s academic achievements by giving them praise and encouraging them to keep up the great work.
