Building a Stronger Mind

Clubs, sports, art, and music offer athletic and creative opportunities for your child. With your guidance, let him select activities that he's interested in. Set him up to succeed by doing your homework before signing up.

For all extracurricular activities, collaborate with group leaders and coaches about your child's learning difficulties. The leader will be able to work with him more effectively, and he'll learn that a learning difficulty is not something to hide.

Try always to build your child’s self-esteem with encouragement and motivation

(GreatSchools Inc., 2008).

activities at home

Activities at Home

Ask your child to help with yard work such as: raking leaves, picking up sticks and rocks

Have chores set per week such as: cleaning his/her room, taking out the trash, vacuuming, washing dishes, etc.

Ask your child to help with certain projects around the house such as: painting, carpentry, or building something

Let your child teach you or others things: kids naturally love to teach and help others.
