Boost the Schools
Did you ever think about it- your child is apt to take about the same interest in his school studies as the parent does. Do you encourage your child to be obedient and studious at school? If you don’t the fault of his failure to progress is not with the school, but with yourself. Ninety per cent of the cause for criticism of the schools can be corrected in the home. The parent or patron who insists on regular attendance, prompt and unquestioned obedience, application, and who takes an interest in the work his child is doing, is the parent who has no fault to find with the teachers. Make the child think that he has the best teacher in the world. If you will do that you will find that the boosting which at first may have been insincere will at last become sincere. When you create doubt in the mind of a child you might as well take him out of school. Try boosting your school and watch results.
