Whether your child is in kindergarten or high school, there is one skill they will always be able to improve—their vocabulary. Strong oral vocabulary improves all areas of communication, from listening to expression to literacy. Ensuring your child’s vocabulary is appropriate for their grade level (or better) will help them improve their understanding of classroom information, express their knowledge and opinions, formulate questions, and connect general world concepts.
Researchers have discovered traits that successful students share, such as grit and determination. But if your child struggles to build these traits, there is an easy way to help foster them—through their habits. James Clear, author of Atomic Habits, states, “Success is the product of daily habits, not once-in-a-lifetime transformation.”
