High School – Parents still make the difference!

Help your child start the school year with good study habits.

Establishing and using good study habits in high school, may be the best thing he can do to be successful.  Encourage him to:

Find out what works bet for him. This includes when to study, where to study and how to study.Does he need quiet or deos he concentrate better with background noise?Can he work well at the kitchen table or only in his room? Is it more efficient for him to complete one thing before starting another, or can he work on several things at a time?
Get his timing down. Can he work straight through for several hours, or does he need to work in 15 to 20 minute bursts? Some students find breaks frefreshingm, while others get distracted too easily.
Always read directions,. Have your child ask himself if he really understand the directions then Have him read them again. He can’t do the assignment if he doesn’t know what he is supposed to do.
