How Can You Help Your Child Succeed in School?
                                      Routine, Routine, Routine....
1.  Read to or with your child every night.  Nurture a love of books by taking your child to the library or bookstore. 

2.  Do not talk negatively about your child's teachers or about school.  Be positive and encouraging! 

3.  Teach your child to be responsible for their actions and their school work -  remember independence is our goal.  :)

4.  Stay involved and contact your child's teacher with any questions or concerns. 

5.  Ask your child about school every day and encourage him/her to discuss the day's activities.

6. Make sure your child has a healthy breakfast and dinner of fruits, vegetables, meats, and whole grains every day. Eat with your child whenever possible.  Limit foods and beverages that contain sugars, fats, and salts. 

7. Make sure your child is getting plenty of sleep (10-12 hours at the same time every night) and is ready for school each day. 

8. Send your child to school with a quick & happy good-bye.  It will make sure everyone has dry eyes & happy times! 

9. Limit screen time (t.v./video games) for your child to no more than 1-2 hours per day of QUALITY educational programming. 

10. Provide your child with age-appropriate play toys like balls, building blocks, puzzles, bikes, games, etc.  Let your child choose what to play. 

11.  Let your child help with simple chores: sorting socks, setting the table, sweeping the floor, etc.

12. Encourage your child to play with other children.  This helps to learn the value of sharing and friendship. 

13. Be clear and consistent when disciplining your child. Explain and show the behavior you expect.  Whenever you say no, follow-up with what should be done instead. 

14.  Help your child use good language skills by speaking in complete sentences and using "grown-up" words.  Help your child use the correct phrases. 

15.  Help your child problem solve when he/she is upset. 

16.  Give your child choices on what to wear (green shirt or blue shirt), what to play, and what to eat for a snack. 

17.  Keep a daily schedule/routine that is predictable and consistent.
