I took the month of August off, but now I'm gearing up to send my kids back to school next week. I'm devoting the month of September blog posts to tips on transitioning back to school.
Parents need help organizing their children's school activities and their homework (typically middle school students who have ADD). The challenges of transitioning from one teacher in elementary school to many teachers in middle school often takes students and parents by surprise.
Many students lack the organizational tools necessary to handle the multiple classes, assignments, projects, teaching methods, and expectations. This all leads to a breakdown in study skills, lower grades, and increased tension between parents and children.
What’s a parent to do? Don’t panic! In my upcoming blog posts I will offer simple tips to help your student develop the organizational skills he’ll need to succeed in middle school, and in life.
