Beyond the refrigerator: Art display builds self-esteem
When you display your child’s artwork it builds her self-esteem. Putting it on the refrigerator is great, but why not go a step farther? Try matting and framing a piece of her art that is particularly creative. Let your child help you use a ready-cut mat and an inexpensive picture frame, and hang it for all to see. Or use a copier to make duplicates of your child’s art and help her share it with family and friends.

You don’t need a problem to talk to a teacher
Have you talked to your child’s teacher lately? You don’t need a problem to talk to the teachers. You can spend a few minutes talking about how hard your child is working. Or let the teacher know if you think your child is making progress. If you want a parent-teacher conference, be sure to ask for one. The information you share about your student helps the teacher be more effective.
