"Family engagement is about seeing families as an inextricable part of their child’s early childhood education and treating them as partners and experts in their child’s learning and wellbeing. Years of research show that engaging families goes far beyond raising test scores – it is about preparing children and families for success in life."

You can also model responsibility by explaining tasks that need to happen and the benefits everyone receives when we do them, such as, “Today we’re going go grocery shopping and then put away all the groceries, so that this weekend we have lots of good food to enjoy.” This helps kids understand the “why” of a chore far more than “because I said so.”
