The family is that first place where children learn. More than that, it is in fact the place where despite moving to other scenarios, they will continue to learn.
School is not just where children go so parents can work, do chores, or socialize. Nor is it just a place where they play or make friends, although of course it works for all that too. Its purpose is much more relevant not only for the lives of minors and their families, but for all societies.
An educated people implies people who are aware of their decisions and rights and who, therefore, will not be easily manipulated, and will have less inequality and poverty. All this in the future translates into higher income and, of course, a better quality of life.
However, even when all this is in the public domain, there are many dads and moms who only see short-term and send their little ones to schools without giving the correct follow-up to the achievement they are having. More and more we have a generation of parents who neglect the responsibility of educating their children, delegating that role to schools. Then, it is until the school report card with complaints or bad grades arrives, that they cry out to the sky and seek to punish those who have not fulfilled their responsibility, that is, the teachers, not their children and, much less, they like parents.
It’s sad, but more and more schools are treating the teacher as just another employee of the students, almost at the level of the employee who does the cleaning at home. Many parents ignore that teachers impart knowledge, but achievement is the responsibility of the students and also of their parents. Especially in the early years to a great extent from the parents, since their guidance will greatly depend on the type of students that children will end up being.
How do you make sure your child is a good student?
1. Family stability
Issues such as family disintegration have a direct and negative impact on the performance that your children will have in school. Please take care as parents of the family environment you give your children, because a problematic home will make children scattered and little committed to their studies.
2. Teach them to think
One way is to get involved in their tasks. But be careful not to do them for them, or to get frustrated if they can’t do it correctly. The important thing is not so much the result, as the process. The best thing is that your children understand how to solve problems.

3. Motivate their learning
It is important that you infect them with the desire to learn, and something to keep in mind is to offer them the space and materials necessary for them to study. Let them know that a prepared person is a person with a better chance of a better life in all aspects.

4. Show up at school
A teacher who sees an interested parent, even without looking for him, will pay more attention to that student. Not only that, but you will feel confident to turn to them in any situation that merits parental support.

5. Educate with values
A responsible, honest, persevering human being, capable of thinking for himself, himself and his community, is someone with the sensitivity to take advantage of opportunities.
The family is that first place where children learn. More than that, it is in fact the place where despite moving to other scenarios, they will continue to learn. Try to be a father who contributes and puts his children on the path of knowledge, but keep in mind that your tenacity and zeal will be the secret ingredient for him to take advantage of them.
