School Rules #2


Parents, you have homework. Just kidding! You actually don’t. Your teen has homework, and while it can sometimes feel like it’s your task, too, it isn’t. So let them be in control of their work. This means resisting the urge to correct their errors for them. Instead, direct them toward resources so they can help themselves. Integrity is key; your child will only have pride in their work if they know their accomplishments and grades are due to their effort. So give your kid control of their school work, and use your newfound free time to cheer on their efforts.
