  Helping Your Child Succeed In School - What Our Children Learn From UsTuesday, June 18th, 2024  

U.S. Department of Education
Office of Educational Research and Improvement

Sometimes we think that all our children need to know to be ready to start school are the ABC's and how to count. The reality is that most children can learn these things pretty fast once they get to school. What they do need—and what you can give—is the message that education is valuable: through education, people can shape their own future.

So, talk about learning, share the fun and excitement of new skills. Show your children that you are always learning, too. Read aloud, play games, and talk about the events around the block and around the world.

Children tend to follow the examples set for them. When we say one thing and do another, children watch and learn. When we practice what we preach, children watch and learn.

The bottom line is that when we give our children the support and information they need, and expect them to do well, they do better in school and in life.
