Children and young people who are physically and psychosocially healthy, well nourished, ready to participate and learn, and supported to learn by families and communities are more likely to benefit from a quality education (Pascarella & Terenzini, 1991). Positive early childhood experiences are important to children’s success in school, and families and communities play a key role in providing and ensuring these. But the experiences any child brings may be negative or even harmful- for instance, they may include social trauma, personal abuse or HIV/AIDS. Teachers need to be ready to receive and work with learners and whatever they bring to school. The learning environment is a critical dimension of educational quality.
Allowing children to be able to think independently and create their own behavior can be an effective way to allow for more autonomy, improving their motivation in many areas and get the confidence to achieve better grades in school. Pink explains that “A sense of autonomy has a powerful effect on individual performance and attitude” (88). Many parents will choose to raise and will motivate their children by how they were brought up as a child. While this may seem like a great way to raise a child, it could control motivation and behavior with the experience of pressure and demand. Parents might want to consider teaching their children about autonomous motivation which promotes greater conceptual understanding, better grades, enhanced persistence at school and in sporting activities, higher productivity, less burnout, and greater levels of psychological well-being.

They will also be less likely to develop emotional problems like depression or anxiety. To get children to become resilient - to rely on themselves, they've got to believe that they are capable of doing this - how can adults help them? We as the adults have got to take children seriously, listen to them, make them feel that they are important, encourage children to try things out for themselves (you start with young children, by being close by, so they know there is an adult there if they need them - this often gives them more confidence to try things).

As children accomplish such achievements, they feel capable, competent, and ready to do more.” These are things that they learn from a parent or a sibling taking the time to teach them in a positive manner. In another study, they show that one of the most important things you can do to safeguard your children is to spend time with them. When strong ties are formed between children and their families, children are less likely to develop drug problems. I believe we need to have positive family experiences, so that as we grow we learn how to make good life choices.
