Keep Abreast Of School Progress
At this stage, once your kid starts going to school, you are unable to be around to monitor his actions and behavior. In this situation ensuring that your kid is not lost or misguided by other fellow students is of paramount importance.
To do that, keep a healthy contact with the parents of your kid’s friends. No parent wants their kid to go the wrong way so it is a mutual interest between parents that will help make sure that the kids are in a healthy company. At school, be in touch with his teachers in order to be on top of his class performances and general social behavior. That way you will know in case there is something that needs to be changed and you can work towards improving it. This will also help to know if your kid is facing any kind of problem at school, for instance bullying. You can help him learn to deal with it the right way without making him feel that you are keeping a tab on him.
