So when the going gets tough, what do you do to help you excel in college? Check out these college success tips that you can use to make your stay in college a successful and eventful one.
Before deciding to spy on your kids, it is best to talk to them to get an understanding of what is going on in their lives. Ask questions about friends, after school activities and about their possible love interests and see if you can get answers. Many children become secretive when they feel as though they are too restrained. If parents can allow their children a bit of freedom to hang out with friends and not nag over every detail then children might not rebel as much. When parents give their children a bit of space they learn to trust their parent.
First and foremost, be certain you can stick to any schedule you create. This is one of the hardest parts of preparing for back-to-home school. Make sure you talk to your child while you plan their schedule. Sometimes, you may forget about “after-school” activities they may have such as community sports or dance.
Repetition is the key to learning most things in high school classes. When i studied, I would make note cards of key items that I could pull out and study anywhere. For many tests, I used my note cards to study on my way to school as well as the few minutes before a test started. These note cards served two purposes; they made me organize the key points, but also served as a way to refresh my memory before a test started. These note cards helped to reduce my stress, and raise my high school grades especially on tests.
These children live lives of chaos and insecurity. Never knowing what they might find when they get home, many drop out of school to better control their environments. Tired of having Dad or Mom make inappropriate and humiliating comments to friends, these children are often isolated from their peers. Their most basic needs aren’t met: feeding, clothing, medical care or even shelter, because the alcoholic needs their booze more. Alcoholism is a selfish, destructive and self centered disease, that rips families apart every day in this country.
Create a supply list and go over it with your child. Make sure you have everything you need before classes start. Otherwise, you will find reasons to delay or cancel classes as you run back and forth for supplies. Place everything in the appropriate bins and areas for easy use later.
If you have shied away from this task, that’s understandable. Parenting can feel like the loneliest job in the world. Take heart! You are not alone. Don’t give up!
