Welcome to Kids Making Change!

At KMC (Kids Making Change) you can find helpful information that will actually help you to be better parents and your child to become a well rounded adult. These days, kids are taught basic information by rote in school. Test based education leaves little room for the joy and wonder of learning.

As a parent, it is your job to help your child learn how to apply knowledge memorized at school to real life.

With this blog, we will discuss activities and ways of thinking that can help your child understand the meaning and importance of education and become a well rounded adult. Read on to learn more.

Make good use of your local public library. You have access to all sorts of media and information at the library without having to shell out a bunch of money. Look for books, movies and other materials that support and enhance the information your child is learning at school. Be sure to have a copy of your child’s class syllabus on hand so you will know exactly what to look for.

Use your own math skills every day to set a good example for your child. Teach your child the importance of knowing how to add, subtract, multiply and divide in everyday life by keeping close tabs on your own checkbook and being sure your child sees what you are doing and knows why. Calculate the square footage of rooms in your house when you are in search of floor coverings. Calculate the area of your walls when you are thinking about buying paint. Convert measurements for cooking and other activities. Show your child that the math he or she is learning in school has real life practical applications.

Visit museums, local theater productions and other cultural and social events and venues. Take every opportunity to come in contact with people from other cultures and learn about their way of life. Check out the schedule of classes at your local community center to see if there are interesting, enjoyable, enriching classes you and your child could take together to broaden your knowledge and learn more about the world.

Keep a good balance of learning materials on hand. Even though we can find out just about anything online these days, it is important to know how to use a dictionary, a thesaurus and the encyclopedia. These are simply skills that knowledgeable people have. It is at least as important to know how to look through these resources for information as it is to know how to find information online. It is entirely possible that there will be times when a computer or other technological tool will not be available. Knowing how to use traditional sources of information is very advantageous.

Plan activities in and around your home and neighborhood that will help your child learn about working and socializing appropriately with others. Community events, groups such as boy or girl scouts and more will help your child learn to get along with others in a cooperative manner.

By making good use of public resources, introducing your child to a wide variety of learning materials and demonstrating how knowledge gained in school can be useful in daily life you can help your child make the most of his or her education. Combining information learned at home and at school will result in your child growing up to be a well rounded adult.
