The truth is, children usually do what we expect of them. That’s why having high expectations for your child is so important. Research shows that parents’ expectations can motivate students to do well in school. On the other hand, say things like “You’ll never amount to anything,” and your child will likely do that, too. Tell your child you are counting on her to learn, behave, be kind and give schoolwork her best effort.
