Build Self-Concept.
Build your child's self-concept by commenting on what the child does right in school and discovering those extracurricular activities that bring out the best in the child. Expose your child to music, art, dance, sports, and a variety of hobbies until you find some area the child can excel in. Make a list of what you like about the child and have the child add to the list.

Read Aloud Together.
Don't stop reading to your child when he learns to read. Include poetry and the classics in your selections and have the child read to you. Many of the books you read to your child will later become best loved favorites that will be read and reread.

Volunteer At School!
Be a parent who supports your child's school in a lot of ways. From signing up to help at special functions, making phone calls or driving on a field trip, children love to see their parents at school and the school needs your help.

Talk With Teachers.
Don't wait until there is a problem to talk to your child's teacher. Establish communication early in the year and keep the lines open. It's very important to let your child's school and teacher know what a good job they are doing. A little thank you goes a long way! Teachers need positive feedback, too.
