Education for me is essential and I am trying to pass on to my kids the lessons my own parents taught me. A good education can improve your life and give you the tools to achieve your dreams, so I expect my children to study hard and later pursue a college degree. I try to be as involved as I can in their schools, because it shows them how much I care.
Here are a few tips I’ve learned about how to teach your kids the importance of education:
- Share your family history highlighting their stories, challenges and successes.
- Give concrete examples of the importance of education or people they admire that have pursued higher education.
- Explain that even artistic fields such as acting, singing and painting, benefit from a college education.
- Show your kids that you care about their education. Get involved in their schools and volunteer whenever possible.
You can find more tips on the H&R Block blog, where I am sharing what I’ve learned thanks to my collaboration with them and Latina Bloggers Connect.
