Back to School: 5 Success Tips for Parents

Going back to school is a time full of anticipation and preparation for the coming year.  Adjusting to the new schedule can be challenging for parents, as well as students. Over the next month we are going to be talking about having the "Best School Year Ever!" Set yourself up to have your best year ever -- help your child establish habits that will help them be successful in school.

 

Here are 5 tips to help bring your child's study habits, concentration, and confidence to the next level...

#1: Establish & write out a daily routine

Write out a schedule listing the time your child will get up, eat breakfast, leave for school, and what time they'll get home, do homework, have dinner, and go to bed. Post this in a place where your child can easily see it -- such as on the fridge.

 

#2: Establish great homework habits

Have a set time and quiet place for your child to do homework. Encourage them to do their best work, and ask questions when they need help. Make a homework chart together or download one to track your child's progress in a visual and engaging way. Check out our tips for creating good homeowork habits.

 

 

 

 

#3: Share at home

Ask your children what they learned in school, and what their favorite part of the day was. Give them your full attention. Compliment them when they do a great jjob and acknowledge their achievement.

 

Back to school time can be a stressful time, so anchor in the positive and focus on what is going well. 

#4: Encourage positive relationships

Be supportive of friendships with kids who have good character and good habits. Gently discourage relationships with kids who might have a negative influence.

 

Back to school is a great time to make some awesome new friends! 

#5: Establish a bedtime routine

Make bedtime a habit, so that it becomes virtually automatic. Start early to allow your child to get enough sleep. End the day with low energy activities like reading or coloring.
