Parent Tips to Help Your Child Succeed

  • Kids who take part in extra-curricular activities do better in school. Find a school activity that interests your child.

  • Enjoy some physical activity with your child today.

  • Keep a map or globe visible in your home. Your child will learn a little more about the world each time she sees it.

  • Tell your child that you believe he can succeed. He’ll be more likely to do so.
