Family Involvement has a Positive effect on Student Behavior
- When families are involved, students exhibit more positive attitudes and behavior.
- When students report feeling support from both home and school, they have more self confidence, feel school is more important, and they tend to do better in school.
- Student at-risk behaviors such as alcohol use, violence, and other anti-social behaviors decrease as parent involvement increases.
Positive behavior interventions & supports, often called PBIS, is not just for schools. Parents can use the same ideas to create a better environment for the entire family. First, let’s look at what PBIS is:
- Deciding what behavior you want to change
- Deciding how you want that behavior to change
- Using behavior science to change that behavior
- Develop a theory about why you think the behavior is occurring
- Test your theory
- Using supports that have been tested and proven to work
- Teach new skills to get the same results
- Change environments and daily routines
- Reward positive behaviors
Positive behavioral interventions & support does not mean changing the child; rather, it means creating a new environment that supports the positive behavior you want to achieve. It means creating a plan that determines who will help and what you will do differently.
