Tip #1:  Time Management

A master schedule of their activities is a great idea to stay organized and ahead of the game.  Pick up a calendar and start filling in blocks of time that you already know will be taken.

Tip #2:  Prioritize

Do what is most important first.  Work with your child to list out the top ten most important things to do at the beginning of the week (Sunday).  Make sure this list is visible to you and your child.  As they go down from 1-10, you can monitor their progress and speed, as well as notice if their study habits are effective.

Tip #3:  Seek a healthy, balanced lifestyel

Sleep is key.  Studies have shown that students who sleep well and regular do better in school, have a lower rate of car accidents, and a higher immune system.

Tip #4:  Support your child

Listen when your child is talking to you.  More often than not, teenagers will feel like they aren’t able to relate to their parents.  Make sure you maintain open lines of communication with your child, listen, and offer support in a sympathetic manner.
