UPDATES FOR FAMILIES

Dear Lemon Grove Families and Community:
 
Greetings to all of our LGSD families! Here are two more pointers on raising your children to be more confident as they grow up. There are simple things you can do to build resilient children, ready to successfully navigate our world.
 
TREAT MISTAKES AS BUILDING BLOCKS FOR LEARNING
Learning from mistakes builds confidence. But this only happens when you, as a parent, treat mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow.  Don't be over-protective of your child. Allow them to mess up every now and then, and help them understand how they can better approach the task next time.  Parents should see "uh-oh" moments as an opportunity to teach their kids not to fear failure.
 
LET THEM ACT THEIR AGE
Don't expect your child to act like an adult. When a child feels that only performing as well as parents is good enough, that unrealistic standard may discourage effort. Striving to meet advanced age expectations can reduce confidence.
 
Thank you for being our partners in growing your child into the best version of themselves!
