Study after study shows that kids who come from homes where learning is a way of life have a much better chance of succeeding in school, all the way through college. And you, as a parent, are responsible for establishing that environment from the very beginning. Read to your kids when they’re young, and keep books and learning materials around the house. Give them a creative space and work with them; play with them during those crucial early years and as they grow older. The F.U.N. (that’s Families United on the Net) Place has a nice stage-by-stage checklist that can help you get started. Educator Judy Harris Helm has written a terrific set of books, starting with Teaching Your Child to Love Learning, that offers great advice as well.
