ROAR at Home

How can we help our children ROAR at home and other places outside of school?

Respectful:

Model using kind words towards family members, sales clerks at stores, and friends.

Expect your children to talk to one another politely and patiently.

Remind your children that words have POWER – they can build others up or tear others down – always use words to build up!

PRAISE publicly; correct PRIVATELY! Help your child feel proud of their accomplishments by letting them know specifically what they are doing right in front of others. When they need correction, correct when you are calm and in private.

Organized:

Have a set place for students to hang their backpack; do their homework; keep their school supplies, etc.

Make a chore chart, and have your child check off when they complete a job.

Make lists of the steps for getting ready for bed, getting ready for school, etc.

Appropriate:

Use kind, respectful language at all times.

Put away things you take out; clean up after yourself at home, in the car, at other homes, etc.

Have a set place for students to hang their backpack; do their homework; keep their school supplies, etc.

Responsible:

Have your child be responsible for their daily homework.

Require your child to complete chores daily – make their bed; put their clothes in the laundry basket; set the table; clear the table, etc.

Be sure your child “owns” the responsibility for their report card. Help them understand it is their work effort at school and home that makes the difference. Their report card is their paycheck!
