back to schoolAs parents, we want our children to succeed in everything they do, especially school. Teachers play an important role in the development of our children. Get to know your child’s teacher and be actively involved with your child's education. Here are some tips to help your child with school:

  • Establish a good bed time routine. Children need eight to ten hours of sleep each night.
  • Plan enough time to get ready in the morning so your child doesn't feel stressed.
  • Help your child develop good homework habits. Designate a regular time and location to work on assignments. It should be away from other children playing and without distractions from the television.
  • Do not do their homework for them. When you child asks for help, provide guidance, not answers.
  • Start projects early! The hardest part is getting started, so do at least one thing the day it is assigned.
  • When doing homework, help your child figure out what is hard homework and what is easy. Do the easy part first, for a feeling of accomplishment.
  • Limit electronic media time, this includes TV, DVDs, computer, iPad, iPhone, etc.

We hope you have had a great summer! If you child requires your help to get the homework done, talk with his teacher.
