Chalk Talk: Ways to Help Your Child Get Better Grades
The older a child gets, the more they need family support. Many times, parents and family members allow middle school or high school students to “be on their own” with school assignments, organization, and responsibility. Sometimes we don’t realize our children are struggling until we start to see grades fall in school. How can we stop this from happening?
Make sure your child has a planner in his or her binder. Many schools provide one at the start of each school year. Ask your child to write down the assignments from each class, every day in the planner. Check for assignments every day, when your child gets home from school. Speak with your child’s teachers and make sure assignments finished at home get back to school in a timely manner. This may mean checking backpacks and folders until your child has developed the habit of always turning in work on time. In order to achieve success, families and teachers must work together as each child grows.
