    What a great post and reminder of easy ways of how we can help our kids succeed in school!! I need to remember this – especially the peaceful mornings part when school starts soon!

    I loved volunteering during my son’s kindergarten class last year, and our preschool is a co-op so that means I go in every few weeks to be the parent helper (keeps tuition costs down too). I’m hopeful that I an continue to volunteer at school for all 3 of my children.
    I never thought about my husband and I and our own educational goals. The kids know that my husband takes classes so I may need to talk more about why he does so and for what purpose! Thanks for sharing

    Working in a classroom for the last 2 years has really opened my eyes as a parent. Teachers work long hours and when parents come into the classroom they can see how their student is doing. You can tell the difference when the student has not gotten enough sleep. Also I think its important to let your child take responsibility and not do everything for them. Let them carry their backpack and teach them to be organized.

    Thank for you for sharing this! As a classroom teacher I couldn’t agree more with your advice. Every year I have kiddos walk into my room in the morning crying because of an argument with their caregiver that morning. It’s usually over something silly, like what they wanted to wear or what they wanted to eat, but they worry about it all day.
