You don’t have to be an educator to help your child do well in school.
EP0: Parent As Learning Coach
The events of last spring and the pandemic exposed a role in the parenting gig most of us rarely considered – the parent as learning coach. Many parents have now been up close and personal with what goes into making sure their children are successful in school and they want to know if they are “doing it right.” In this episode, we introduce School House as the space where school and house meet. You’ll also hear why consistency is foundational to the learning process. Children thrive when they know what to expect and what’s expected of them.
BE THE MODEL: ROUTINES AND PROCEDURES
Routines and procedures tell students what to expect and what is expected of them. When adults model and consistently hold students accountable to expected behaviors, they send a message about the importance of the routines and procedures. They are also establishing stability in the learning and living environment.
WHY A CONSISTENT APPROACH TO YOUR PARENTING IS IMPORTANT

“Choosing to get things done faster over being consistent has an effect on your child’s behavior and character. Being consistent is time-consuming and requires thought and patience, but it is an investment in your child’s development and will make your relationship stronger as your child gets older.”
