Putting Assets into Action: Your commitment to learning exists in a variety of ways

-A A +A
By The Staff

This week we look at Asset #24, Bonding to School and Assets #25, Reading for Pleasure. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when the young person cares about his or her school.”

Your child’s relationship to the school may be directly affected by your relationship with the school. While you may have some frustrations, try not to vent them in front of your child.

If you constantly seem annoyed by something, you may be adding to their anxiety about school on a daily basis.

As parents and caregivers, we may try and fix situations to create an easier outcome for our kids.

Actually sometimes students need to suffer the consequence of something in order to learn a life-long skill. While it may seem easier to just handle it, we actually set our kids up for failure in later years.

If they did an assignment wrong or poorly try not to make it seem like the world will end.

If they suffer a bad score, chalk it up to experience. Remember some of the most successful people in the world failed hundreds of times.

School can be a wonderful place, so find out which staff members in the building your students connect with best.

Learn about all of the clubs and organizations and see if any of them interest your student.
