School – You & Your Children
Grades are important. They are indicators of how your child is learning and adjusting to their life changes as they grow up.
When children are having emotional issues, they usually show up in their lower grades at school.
Remember! It’s their – homework – projects – grades – NOT YOURS.
Your children need a scheduled homework time set aside.
Children of single parents, as a national average, tend to under achieve in school.
You must impress upon your children, the importance success in school will have in their success in life after school. Success in school for your children doesn’t happen by itself.
Success in school is a family activity.
Your children need your assistance.
Your child should do all their homework by themselves. You should only help when they absolutely can’t figure it out.
School projects, if left to the child to do on their own, will teach them more about who they are and what they can do than just about anything they can do.
Parent – Teacher Conferences are important – don’t miss them.
School work and learning should be enjoyable and self promoting. Put your children in a position to enjoy as they learn.
School is important in the success of your children!
“The difference between school and life?
In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test.
In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
