A Parent’s View on Their Child’s Abilities Is Very Powerful

DID YOU KNOW THAT children’s abilities in Maths and English are more closely linked to their parents’ views of their ability than to their actual test scores in these subjects, even when the scores dramatically contradict the views of the parents?

This fact tells us that no matter what our children’s scores are, we should keep encouraging them and speaking positively to them. Rather than criticise them in a harsh way, tell them that you know they can do better than that because they have greatness in them.

What we say to our children has a huge impact on them. To be a good learner, your child needs to have positive views about learning and about his/her chances of success in learning. These views come from us as parents.
