Asset No. 22 of 40 | School Engagement

 Commitment to Learning

School Engagement | Young person is actively engaged in learning.

TAKE ACTION:

  • Talk with your children about school and learning.  Ask them every day what they did in school, what they learned, what they liked about school, what they didn’t like about it.  Stay in touch with their school experience.
  • Some kids complain of boredom in the classroom.  If this is the case, talk with your child and his teacher about enriching assignments to add more challenge.  Ask for opportunities that add rigor and depth to your child’s education, and look for mentors and tutors who can help him delve more deeply into subjects that he loves.
  • When you talk about school, stay positive.  Let your children know that you think learning and school are fun and important.
