School Rules #1


You’re worried about your teen’s grades, right? That’s natural; we know that their grades can open or close doors in the future. But the way to support success in school isn’t to make school only about the gradebook As, Bs, and Cs. Today, when they come home from school, don’t ask them about their latest test or essay. Instead ask them if they learned anything interesting or whether they got to spend time with friends. Those questions show that you care about more than assessments and achievements. Make that test or essay one fact about — instead of the focus of — their school day.

Smart thought, right? Keep snack time going with another bite of parenting advice, or sign up for our newsletter and get the next snack delivered to your inbox.
