As a parent, you want the best for your child. In all aspects of life, it can be challenging to know when to provide guidance compared to encouraging independence and allowing your child to figure things out for themself.
Striking the right balance between independence for your student and taking control yourself isn’t always easy, particularly as a parent with a child in an online school. Many learners need support from their Learning Coach to stay on track with assignments, but too much parental involvement can hinder your learner from developing their own independence, which is a critical, long-term life skill.
Discover how to identify when your child needs your help in school, when they should start becoming more independent, and why it’s important to take an active role in your child’s education.
