Prime Minister Harris underscores importance of parents’ role in their children’s lives

Prime Minister Dr the Hon Timothy Harris has once again reiterated that parents play a very important role in the lives of their children, while observing that positive motivation does not require a parent to be an expert in the area he is or she is attempting to help their children.

“You do not have to know the modern maths or the modern English to encourage your child to learn,” said Dr Harris. He stated that a parent could help their child by asking the right questions, and also by asking if the child has any homework. A loving and caring parent should also visit the teacher to ask how the child is doing.
