Keep in touch with the teacher to get feedback and helpful information on your child's progress. Find out his behavior, attitude and the way he treats others at school. After that, encourage his positive attributes and put right his negative attributes, so as to help him have a successful school life.
His attitudes like listening to the teacher's instructions, mixing well with other children and showing respect to others, are all attributes that count. Tell him that you recognize his efforts in these areas and that they demonstrate he is maturing and growing to be a finer child.
Seek out for positive attributes. This helps to refocus from any negatives with regard to your child's performance he portrays at school to positives.
Although negatives will make you react in an emotional way, you could address them by letting him know of the consequences of them and what will others think of him.
Implementing the above strategies will help your child to take responsibility at school so that he can excel in his studies and be more successful in his years ahead.
