The days of "do as I say, not as I do" should be behind you if you want your child to be an excellent student. Kids love to model everything they see adults doing- --whether it's movement, phrases, eating or habits. It's important for your child to see you on a quest for learning as well if you want them to journey to greatness academically.
As an educator, I'm always trying to keep track of the latest research and trends about how we can best help our children succeed. There are many theories about what works about motivating children to learn, what will help them develop skills of all kinds, but something that recently has been coming up a lot is that early education is the real key to students' success.
