Where does one start? Well, lifelong learning starts in the womb. Parents can read out loud to their children before birth. Science has proven that this activity has the potential of creating children who are more aware, more responsive, and possibly more intelligent. Of course this takes time and patience, along with consistency.

As children grow, besides giving them a healthy diet for sustenance, they need communication. Different forms of communication can affect children and their own feelings about themselves. Despite mistakes, and there will be many of them made by both children and parents, keeping up a positive attitude in both behavior and communication will add to their meaningful growth.

This brings us to the classroom. This is another environment where positive communication and body language is vital. When children hear encouragement, support, and a positive and realistic attitude toward learning, children will attend classes with the confidence that they are able to learn. With the challenges in learning, they will struggle to find strategies that will help them accomplish the learning. But with your support and help, children realize that the people in their lives from both home and school are there to help them succeed.

We all want our children to be the best they can be. In addition to positive communication and body language, sometimes parents need a reality check which means a truthful look at their child's strengths and areas for improvement. If parents are able to capitalize on the strengths of their children, they will get a better handle on what needs to be improved. Naturally, we look at the negatives, or needs of our children.

Switch channels for a while and focus on what you, as parents, perceive as the positive points of your children. You will observe your children looking at themselves with more confidence, the willingness to understand that they are not perfect, and the motivation, with your support, to work on those less acceptable behaviors.

All children are capable of learning and they need to accept the fact that there are people in this world that are smarter than they are, some have about the same learning capabilities, and some are not as capable as they are. This is "acceptance" of what the world has to offer. Teaching children meekness and respect for others may place them in a comfortable setting with who they are as individuals as well.

Finally body language on the part of parents is essential. Children read this before understanding all the words that may be spoken. Being cognizant of these two areas of behavior lessens the stress of always being negative. So parents step back and take a look at what you have already communicated to your child. If you need to work on body language, take that first. Then with some honesty, be positive and affirming in your words to your child about everything. By utilizing positive communication and body language you will over time, see a wonderful difference in your child's behavior, sense of responsibility, and overall respect and love of you and their family!
