TOP TIPS FOR ALL PARENTS:
• Validate your kids: ask questions and actively listen • Do family things with your kids • If they go to camps, make sure it’s stuff they want to do and engage with them as to what they did when
they were there • Don’t project your own values or misspent youth on your kids • Evaluate your children on their own merits: if kids are doing well academically they probably don’t need
tuition • Know your kids: if they’re not athletic don’t send them to football camp • Give kids a chance to recharge • Give your kids time, whether during or outside the holidays: your kids need you more than another teacher • Put down your mobile and listen • Actively engage in play with your kids – play they actually enjoy. Playing IS learning!
