A self-check system can boost self-control
You can't control your child's behavior at school. But you can teach her to have self-control. Have her write a behavior goal, such as working quietly, at the top of a piece of paper. Next, have her choose a signal she hears a few times a day, like a pencil being sharpened. Each time she hears it, she can mark a plus sign on the paper if she's working on her goal. If she isn't, she must mark a minus sign. Celebrate when she has more plus signs than minus signs.view image
Treat school anxiety with listening and love
A child who wakes up saying, "I don't want to go to school" and comes home crying should be taken seriously. To address your child's fears, ask, "Can you tell me what's bothering you?" Listen carefully and don't belittle his feelings. Instead, help him figure out how to cope: "What could you do now?" Also, ask his teacher about what you and she can do. Could another student be a "classroom buddy" for your child?view image

Kindness is catching; help your child spread it
Children aren't always kind to one another. They pick on others or say mean things behind people's backs. But your child doesn't have to accept unkindness as the norm. Help her think through actions she can take if she sees a classmate being treated unkindly. Then challenge your child to do at least one nice thing for a classmate each week. She'll learn she has the power to make a difference.view image
To help with math, a positive attitude is a plus
You can help your child learn math even if you don't remember any of the math you took in school. Here are some tips: Let him know that math is important, useful and fun. Ask questions about his homework, such as "How did you arrive at that answer?" or " Do you see a pattern in this page of problems?" Then involve your child in the math you do at home, such as measuring. And build daily math practice into his routine.view image
