Good study habits can help your child make the grade…

 

Good study habits are critical to school success. For example, kids who study every day and submit homework on time have a distinct advantage over other students.

 

To promote good study routines:

 

  • Help your child set up a study routine. You can even help your child make a schedule to post in their room.

 

  • Recognize and reward your child for maintaining a study schedule.

 

  • Establish consequences that matter to your child for failing to complete assignments on time.

 

  • Remember that the old phrase “work before play” is sensible. Occasionally, your child may need to change their routine, but stick to a “homework first” policy most of the time.
