23 Jan How can parents help their children regroup after a less than stellar first semester?
It’s a tough job for parents to walk that line between being a non-participant in their child’s education and being overzealous. The latter calls teachers at all hours of the day and night to ask why their child only made an eighty-nine on a homework assignment that they stayed up all night completing for their child. The former waits until the last week of school to ask what makeup work can be done so their kid can pass – ignoring the twice monthly requests on progress reports and report cards to call to discuss their child’s grades.
My friend, CPO® Deb Lee, asked me to write a blog post about what can be done in this situation. If you need tips on how to recover from a not-so-great first semester of school, please click here to read that post.
