Don’t talk negatively about your child’s teacher or the school in front of the student. This tarnishes their image of school, reinforcing negative behavior and decreasing their motivation to do well.
Talk to your child about their day. This will allow your child to feel that what they are experiencing is important to you. Ask open-ended questions like: tell me about the best part of your day or tell me what the worst part of your day was.
Meet and greet your child’s teacher. Communication is one of the keys to a successful school year. Don’t wait until a problem occurs.
Make sure your child gets enough rest and sleep. Getting enough sleep will increase concentration, learning skills, and problem solving. For teens, enough sleep and rest can help reduce pimples and facial blemishes.
Communicate with your child and teacher about what your expectations are for the school year.
