As you prepare your child for school, make a commitment to help them stay focused and motivated throughout the year. Here are some tips:

Commit to learning.
With your children, come up with some major goals you hope to accomplish this school year.

Set up helpful routines.
Give your kids the consistency of regular routines. Bedtime, wake-up time, study, homework, family time ... kids rely on these routines and the structure helps kids know what’s expected of them.

Help them organize.
Organized kids do better in school. Teach them to keep their notebooks and backpacks neat and orderly. Show them how to break up large assignments into smaller ones so they don’t get overwhelmed. Help them maintain a work space at home.

Maintain healthy habits.
Make sure kids are eating healthy and getting enough sleep. Monitor time spent in front of the TV and on the cell phone. Encourage daily exercise. Healthy kids learn better!

Be a good role model.
Kids learn from their parents. If they see that you are organized, focused, and true to your values, they will pick up some important life lessons from you.

Get help if you need it.
When your kids are struggling despite your best efforts, get help. Talk to a teacher or counselor. Hire a tutor and arrange for a “study buddy.” Get advice from other parents. Don’t wait for a small problem to get bigger; get help early!
