School Rules #3


PDF doesn’t just stand for portable document format. According to Denise Pope from Challenge Success, it’s also an acronym for playtime, downtime, family time. It’s just as vital to your teen’s school success as learning math equations or how to write an essay. The fastest way to make a family connection? Don’t bring devices to the dinner table. Use the mealtime to reconnect, ask questions, and express interest. Teens have a lot to say when they know someone is listening, so give them your undivided attention and leave social media, email, and those other PDFs behind for a short time.
