Raising responsible children requires high expectations
. A parent who does not expect the child to push themselves may be doing a disservice to the child. Many basics of life are learned in the home and children who do not help out are ill-prepared for life on their own. At home, young people also learn vital lessons important for getting along with other people. As far as education, children need to want to excel & have parents that won't settle for below average.
How can you assume your child to perform well if you have low expectations?
Maybe your daughter says she hates social studies but won’t tell you why. Or your son, when asked what he learned at school, just says “Nothing.” Talking about school with your children shows them that you value education and keeps you aware of what’s going on in their lives, but what should you do when they don’t want to talk? As a parent you need to get the conversation started and talk about problems.
