Getting the proper education is mandatory if you want to be able to get a job and be a successful adult. Your education starts at the young age of five when you enter kindergarten on the first day of school. As you hold your mothers hands you are amazed by all the different people, colors and sounds. Eager to find out whom your new teacher will be and the names of your new classmates you patiently wait for it to be your turn to walk through the door. In your first year of your education will you learn the basics from numbers to letters to shapes and animals. This is the building block for your thirteen year journey. The things you learn in your first year of school will be built on throughout the remaining years of your education.
During this time in your education you start to not only learn scholastic curriculum but you will also learn about yourself and who you are. This is a crucial time in every child’s life because it is molding who they will be as an adult. As parents it’s our duty to make sure that our children get everything they need in order to succeed during this time. Checking in on our children’s progress at school and on the teachers that are teaching them is of the upmost importance. It only takes a few minutes to sit down with your child every day when you get home from work to help them with their homework and go through their backpack. Most of the time teachers will have communication notebooks for all of their students and they will write in them daily on with the things that your child did well in school that day or with things that they may need to work on. This will give you a better idea on what you can help your children with.
These are probably the most drama filled days your children will ever have. Hormones start to run wild and emotions are on high alert. Image is everything to high school aged kids and most of the time they will spend hours in front of the mirror making sure that they look their best. This is the time when they will turn sixteen years old and get their driver’s license and this is also the time when they will probably have their first boyfriend or girlfriend and go on their first date. With all of these things going on in their lives it’s going to be easy for them to let their grades slide. It’s important that as parents we take steps in order to prevent this from happening. Teaching them how to manage their money is also key and there are personal finance lesson plans to help you teach them about money.
Keeping all of these things fresh in your mind as your child is going through the entire grade levels will help you ensure that they get the proper education. After graduating high school comes college. If their grades are lacking they will have a hard time getting into college.
