Four basics for school success

In order to help your child succeed in school, the most important thing is to focus on process, not end result. I wrote a book called Homework without Tears and in that book I spoke about designated study time, helping children get organized by having a daily planner and then having a long range planner where they have an assignment that may take several weeks. They can map out each stage of that process. I spoke about being positive in terms of looking at the things that the children are doing well in school versus being critical of what they are not doing. Those are some of the aids that parents can employ to really become an effective teaching partner with the schools.
