You have a direct impact on your student’s success in school. These are just a few suggestions that can help you show your student how you support his/her efforts in school.
Prepare for important decisions
As your student grows, he/she will have to make important choices. Be a part of these choices by discussing classes, special projects, extracurricular activities and college preparation.
The more you are aware the better you can help prepare your student. Talk about upcoming exams, reports and presentations.
Make sure your student understands the assignment or test materials and prepares. Ensure your student spends enough time on assignments and studying so he/she can provide quality work. If the student encounters problems with the work and help is needed, work together to find solutions.
Outline your expectations
Establish limits and boundaries
Find approaches and methods that work best for you and your student to establish a strong support system throughout your student’s schooling. Success starts at home.
