Parent Tips to Help Your Child Succeed

  • Think of synonyms for words with your child. For example, a synonym for talk is converse.

  • Read a textbook assignment with your child. Then ask him to tell you about it in his own words.

  • Emphasize the importance of attending school regularly. Point out that attendance is also vital in the working world.

  • Write your child’s name vertically. Have her use each letter to begin a line of a poem about herself.
