help your child
There is nothing more important than your child and contributing to their achievements. Become a player.
Make time each day to be a part of your child's educational and social activities. Help your child study. Make sure they complete and understand their homework. Review the work that they are doing. Play a game, watch television or read a book together. Know your
child's friends. Learn what motivates your child, in and out of school. Help your child set goals and measure their progress. Praise achievement. Talk with your child every day. Talk to your child's teachers about any teacher conference concerns before they become a problem.
