It’s important for children to discover that learning can take place anywhere. 29. Teach your child basic social behaviors, such as phone etiquette, writing thank you notes, and having a firm handshake. 30. Make sure that your child gets enough sleep. Elementary students should get 10 –11 hours of sleep each night. 31. Give your child age-appropriate chores (e.g., set the table, feed a pet). Helping around the house will teach your child responsibility. 32. Encourage independent problem solving. When children learn how to solve their own problems, they become more confident. 33. Teach financial responsibility. Give your child an allowance and set up a savings account. 34. Be a good role model. Children learn their behaviors and attitudes from their parents more than from anyone else. “It is not what you do for your children, but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.” Ann Landers More Parenting Tips WOODBURN PRESS ©Copyright Woodburn Press LLC all rights reserved This digital publication was presented by:
