You have a smart child who seemingly does not care about school. His or her grades are suffering, but he or she seems indifferent about making a change—despite the fact that your child knows that school is important. How can you help?
Going back to school does not have to be stressful for your child. In fact, a little effort now makes the transition easier—and your child will feel more motivated and ready to make it a great school year.
If your child has enjoyed a leisurely summer of trips to the pool, sleeping in, hanging out with friends and operating on a more relaxed pace than during the school year, you both may be dreading the end of summer, when the backpacks come back out and the routine is back in full swing.
When it comes to packing, he or she may be focused on dorm décor and clothes, but there are a number of other intangible items your teen will want to remember to bring along when he or she begins the college journey.
The school year is packed for most children, so summer is a welcome break from the routine of homework and studying. One of the best summer pastimes and easiest ways to mitigate summertime regression is reading.
You’ve heard before that there’s no such thing as “one-size-fits-all” learning. The same is true for study and homework strategies. Homework nurtures students’ time management skills and their ability to complete tasks.
It’s summer break and children around the country are celebrating. While your child certainly deserves a break from the daily grind of homework and studying, it’s important to keep that brain active to avoid regression, the loss of academic skills that is so common over long breaks from school.
Summer break is a perfect time for children to establish or renew a reading habit, which is why the Huntington Learning Center is launching its annual summer reading program, Reading Adventure.
Understandably, many parents want their teens to focus first on their academics and extracurricular commitments, but there are so many benefits for teens who work a part-time job.
All parents want to give their children the tools to be successful in school, but did you know that making reading a priority is arguably the most essential academic skill?
