Parenting Tips

pt-20130924-2Having a child go off to Nursery school is always marked by joy that your baby is growing up and going on to bigger and better things; and marred by sadness that your baby is growing up and going on to bigger and better things! The best way to ease the transition to school is by doing some “homework” of your own to make yourself and your little scholar ready for the first day of “BIG school”.

In this section, we will look at four (4) important areas where you can help yourself and your child be best prepared for nursery school and a lifetime of success. These areas are:

Start by letting your children tackle little activities and following up with praise when they succeed.
Research shows that sharing dinner as a family improves teenage behaviors, increases toddler vocabulary and teaches kids to eat healthier.
Most kids generate a little chaos and disorganization. Yours might flit from one thing to the next forgetting books at school, leaving towels on the floor, and failing to finish projects once started.
These ideas will help you develop deeper relationships with your children, even in spite of a hectic schedule.
