1. Get Involved
Children pick up on your cues. Their interest in school can increase as they see your own interest, whether through serving on the parent council, volunteering with school activities, attending school events, or getting to know your child’s teachers.
“Kids need to get a sense that you support the school, and have a positive relationship with it,” says Jeff Kugler of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. “If that relationship breaks down, it’s harder for your child to be positive.”
