EDUCATION

You, as the parent, must inculcate in your child a positive attitude towards effort, perseverance and plain hard work.  You, as the parent need to check your child’s work every night and day.  Schooling cannot always be easy or fun.  There will always be an aspect of compulsion and learners will be expected to deliver the goods, fun or not.  Do not accept excuses from your children for lack of application or poor discipline.  Also, keep in mind that you, the parent, are the primary educator of your children.
