And ….. next week is Teacher Appreciation Week!
Here are some insights from my most recent Love and Logic Insider’s Club newsletter:
Great teachers are amazing!
The best gift we can give them involves our own parenting. The most wonderful display of our appreciation is to send them students truly ready to be respectful, responsible, and eager to learn. No doubt this gift also benefits our children, who will rise to the top when equipped with such character attributes.
Listed below are just a few things you can do:
Make sure that your kids overhear you saying positive things about their school and their teachers.
Ensure that they are doing chores without reminders at home, so that they know how to do assignments without reminders at school.
Limit and monitor time with technology, including video games, texting, surfing the web, watching videos, television, etc. These activities make it more difficult for our children to remain calm and content at school.
Have family meals together, where you enjoy each other and talk about all of the things you’ve learned during the day.

“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see.”
