Nothing is said unless something is wrong! Try turning that around. Make it a point to praise your child for good work and enthusiasm whenever you can. It’s a great way to motivate her to do her best at school.
Other ways to inspire your child:
• Expect her best. If you are satisfied with half an effort, your child will be too. Some children need extra help. If your child does, talk to her teachers and take steps to get it for her.
• Give extra comfort during hard times. This is hard to do when a family is having problems, but it is necessary for children. Each day, reassure your child that you love her, you appreciate her and you’re working to make things better.
• Praise her teachers and school. If you have complaints, take them to school officials. Keep things positive in front of your child. If she doesn’t feel that you support her school, she may not see a reason why she should like it either.
