Be active in your childs life and get involved! Set clear expectations and discuss them with your child.

Offer to help with homework or projects, but dont take over or do more than is necessary. It is their responsibility to complete it to the best of their ability.

Listen: Know what your child is doing.

Encourage your child to be involved in all aspects of school-academics, athletics, and activities.

TIPS FOR A BETTER FRESHMAN YEAR ContinuedMonitor and prioritize nonacademic activities-TV, phone(texting), internet(sites/social networking),jobmake sure they have enough time devoted to school.

Have your child in school whenever possible. Lots of absences, unless truly ill, will send the wrong message and negatively impact their progress. It is the students responsibility to see their teacher to get make up work!!!

Set realistic goals. If you fail to planyou plan to fail.

Hold your child accountable.

Encourage your child to step up where they can be successful and step in for them for more complicated or overwhelming interventions.
