The longer a child stays absent from school during the year, the less progress they will make academically. Children who consistently attend school have a lower risk of falling behind academically, which may lead to behavioral issues, dissatisfaction, and eventually, dropping out. It’s important to start talking to kids about the value of school attendance as early as possible, in preschool.
Learning both in and out of the classroom is greatly aided by the involvement of families. Motivating children to plan for the future may be done in a number of ways, including introducing them to the relevance of science, mathematics, engineering, and technology in everyday life and discussing potential jobs in these fields. Families may get exposure to cutting-edge technologies and scientific instruments while working together on fun, engaging projects at their local school, after-school program, library, or other community location. One strategy for encouraging kids’ passions outside the classroom is to become involved with community groups that provide educational events for the whole family.
When starting a new school, meeting a new teacher, or making new friends, children and young people may benefit from the support of their families, schools, and communities. Transitions may be difficult for children, whether they are beginning kindergarten, starting ninth grade, relocating to a new neighborhood, or beginning a new after-school program. Some methods in which schools may ease the transition process for new students and their families include orientation events, buddy programs, and informative websites that address common concerns.
Kids may access educational materials and resources online at any time. Teach your kids how to use apps and websites as a learning tool, and help them establish healthy screen time habits. Relationships with educators may also be fostered via the use of apps and other forms of electronic communication. Schools may also assist children and their families in learning how to effectively use social media, identify and report cyberbullying, and grow in their media literacy.
