This is a good time for parents to visit their children's schools and get involved in the education process with your children. PTA is a good place to get involved. Boy and Girl Scout programs are also very good. Become a tutor to children in need of help. Support your child's teacher's efforts to educate your child. Knowing that you are involved in their school activities is a great incentive to encourage your child to excel in their classes. Your children will be proud of you. This will strengthen your ties and trust with your children. Just knowing that you care enough to get involved can trigger positive efforts in your children. Take the time to visit the schools where your children are enrolled. Your children will know that you are there for them at all times, especially in time of need.
