It is very important to participate in the education of children, because the constant presence of parents encourages good academic performance.

The current world scenario has taken on more preparation for the labor market. Competitiveness to enter and remain in the corporate world requires constant qualification. It may seem exaggerated, but this preparation begins early in the child`s early years. It is not enough just to choose a school with a good pedagogical plan, the close monitoring and support of the parents are fundamental for the student to develop and have a successful academic and professional life.

Check out tips on how parents can help their children`s school education:
Establish a routine
Create favorable study conditions for your children at home, reserve a space with desk, chair, lighting and necessary materials. Establish a daily schedule for studies and, during this time, distance distractions such as electronics, cell phones, and TV. The ideal is to review what has been taught in the day and do the homework, with that, the subjects not accumulate to be studied only on the eve of the evaluations.
Track according to age
For children in the first years of elementary school, the monitoring should be done closely, always guiding and correcting the errors proper to the age. For teens, it`s good to review the content and let them exercise their thinking more freely to resolve the issues. Help now is only required at the beginning and end of study period, for correction, clarification, and adjustments. Remembering that the time for daily study should increase proportionally to the student`s age and academic stage.
Keep the dialogue
Keep the habit of dialogue with your children from the beginning. Ask what the day was like, what they learned, what activities they liked, etc. But do it light and easy. So over time, this conversation will flow naturally and you will always be aware of your children`s academic situation.
Teach by Playing
Always offer game, book and magazine options that have important content for training. Create dynamics and family competitions that encourage the reading or even the development of game strategies that favor logical reasoning. Electronics can also be allies, for example, encourage access to sites and movies focused on quality information.
Exercise and sleep
Keep an eye on your children`s rest and exercise schedules, and it is proven that the quantity and quality of sleep hours directly influence learning. The ideal for children of 12 years is that they sleep at least 9 hours a night, and for adolescents is indicated at least 7 hours of sleep. Physical exercises also help in the psychomotor development of the individual and favor concentration and learning.

 
Visit the school
It is true that nowadays life is busy, but it is important to visit your children`s school regularly, not only in parent-teacher meetings, but spontaneously. Define the frequency of visits according to your availability, weekly, fortnightly or monthly, but do not forget to go. Inquire about the teaching methodology, the performance of your children and identify any difficulties to correct them at home.
