Tips on How to Help Your Child in School

  • Provide a quiet, clean workspace, whether it be a desk or kitchen table.

  • Keep an agenda, diary or calendar of assignments and events.

  • Stay in contact with the school, attend meetings, read newsletters and attend parent/teacher interviews.

  • Know what is going on in your child’s life.

  • Encourage and support your child.

  • Show your child how you work hard and learn new things. Help him/her find answers to difficult questions in books, library resources or on the Internet.

  • Make sure school comes first in the family’s priorities- before sports, jobs or socializing. It is helpful if one parent is present and available when homework is being done.

  • Do not sweat the hairdos, clothes, Pokemon cards or music of otherwise happy students and kids.

  • If something goes wrong and your child fails a subject or a year, offer hope and a chance to redeem him or herself.

  • Love your child and show it. This is the cornerstone of success.
