Parents/Guardians Still Make the Difference!

Show your teen how to manage year-end school assignments.

Your teen is probably faced with an array of finals and year-end projects as this school year draws to a close. Having so much homework can be daunting.

Here are tips to help your teen keep end-of-year assignments manageable:

  • Homework comes first. Some students like to do homework as soon as they get home from school. Others work better after some time to unwind.  Still others are at their best later at night. But homework must get done on time. It must have top priority.
  • Keep track of key dates. Few students can remember when all of their assignments need to be turned in without writing down due dates. Your teen should write everything down in a planner or calendar and check it daily.
  • Jot down reminder notes during the school day. Writing “Bring history book home tonight” on a sticky note and sticking it to the front of her notebook really can help your teen remember to bring the book home
  • Be careful about distractions. The TV, the phone and the internet may not be a problem when your teen has a lesser workload. But at the end of the school year, when her workload has increased, she should make a stronger effort to avoid distractions.
