Cheating is wrong under any circumstances: Today, with many students learning in unusual circumstances, they may feel that the usual rules about academic honesty don't apply. But the truth is that a teen who cheats is cheating himself of learning. Remind your teen that there is no difference between copying from an online source without giving credit and taking an item from a store without paying. It's stealing, and it's always wrong. http://niswc.com/36eKC320271

Use expectations to emphasize two key lessons "Two of the most important lessons children can learn," wrote columnist William Raspberry, "are that they matter and that they are counted on." A great way to show your child she matters is to set expectations. When you maintain a regular study time, for example, she learns that her education matters to you. When you expect her to act responsibly, she knows you count on her and think she's capable. http://niswc.com/16eKC320271

For better math results, encourage reading Many teens don't make the most of their math assignments. They see their math textbook only as a place to find the problems they are assigned. But a math book is also a resource for understanding the "why" of a math method. Encourage your teen to get into the habit of reading (and rereading!) the explanations in the book before she starts to solve the assigned problems. http://niswc.com/36eJC320271

Then assign each letter of the alphabet a number (A:1, B:2, etc.). Give your child a word and have him use the code to write it in numbers. Next, ask him to multiply those numbers to find the word's product. Finally, challenge him to look in the dictionary for the seven-letter word with the highest product he can find. http://niswc.com/16eJC320271

Promote learning by doing it together Academic subjects are not the only things teens need to learn. There are lots of ways to promote learning at home. You might pick some interesting newspaper editorials and share them with your teen. Then ask for his suggestions about how the issues should be handled. Or let him pick a dish he has never tried and cook it together. You and your teen can also talk with older relatives to learn their stories. http://niswc.com/36eIC320271

Genuine praise boosts persistence Praise can motivate children to keep working when they are struggling with a subject. But sometimes it can be hard to know what to say. Children recognize false praise, so focus on something your child has done right. You might use phrases such as, "That was a good try" or "You've learned hard things before; I know you'll get it." If she continues to struggle, let the teacher know. http://niswc.com/16eIC320271

Conduct an eye-opening science experiment Give your child a glimpse into the way his eyes work with this after-dark activity: Have him look at his eyes in a bathroom mirror. Turn off the light and ask your child to count to 20. Then turn the light back on and ask him to look at his pupils. Did they change size? Explain that pupils get larger in the dark to let more light into the eye. When the light comes back on, pupils shrink. http://niswc.com/16eHC320271

'Hands-on' practice helps kids tell time Children see so many digital clocks that they can't always tell time on a clock with hands. Help your child practice by drawing a clock face on a paper plate and using two strips of paper for hands. Ask questions such as, "When you feed the dog at 8:00, where are the hands on the clock?" or "Where are the hands when your favorite TV show comes on at 7:30?" Let your child take control and move the hands to the correct time. http://niswc.com/16eGC320271

For better recall, share long-term learning strategies When your teen has really learned something, she can recall it on demand. The key to good recall is to move a piece of information from short-term memory to long-term memory. Several strategies can help. Encourage your teen to draw diagrams of the information she wants to remember. She can also write a song about it or create a digital file of key facts. Whenever possible, help her apply the material to real life. http://niswc.com/36eEC320271

Offer your teen a sticky reading strategy Most teens don't read a long assignment in one sitting. But when they pause for a break, they may forget what they've just learned. Before your teen takes a break from reading, have him jot down a few words on a sticky note about what he just read and place it where he stopped reading. When he comes back to the material, it will be easier for him to pick up his train of thought. http://niswc.com/36eDC320271

These devices add interest to literature: Understanding some of the devices writers use can help your teen enjoy the literature she reads. Illustrative language, for example, enriches descriptions. Metaphor (comparing two unlike things by saying one is the other: "a blanket of snow") and simile (saying one thing is "like" another) are two types of illustrative language. Suggest your teen research other literary devices, and keep them in mind when she reads. http://niswc.com/36dUC320271

Sharpen spelling with a grocery list: To help your child sharpen her spelling skills, ask her to write your grocery list. Name the items you need, and challenge her to sound the words out on her own before you help with spelling them. When you bring the groceries home, can she match the words on the list with the words on the items on the shelf? She'll learn to spell, and she'll feel competent every time you ask her to make a list you can take to the store. http://niswc.com/16dUC320271

When it comes to discipline, replace lectures with listening: You've repeated yourself until you're blue in the face, but your teen keeps doing things you've asked him not to. That's probably because lecturing makes him angry and defensive. What works? Working on a problem together. To encourage cooperation, say, "I'd really like to hear what's going on with you so we can talk about it." Teens are more likely to react positively if they feel parents are listening to them. http://niswc.com/36dTC320271

Short chats add up to meaningful conversation: A teen who longs for independence may not have any interest in a long talk with you. But you can still talk with her about the issues that matter. Just figure on five or six short talks instead of one long one. Talk about something for five minutes, then, as she disappears into her room, press the "pause" button. After dinner, pick up where you left off. Over time, you'll cover the issue, just in short bursts. http://niswc.com/36dSC320271

Turn your teen into a history detective: Many teens think history is just memorizing boring facts. To help your teen see history in a new light, suggest that he read it like a mystery where he is the detective. He can skim a chapter and ask himself, "Who are the main characters?" "What do they want?" "Who is against them?" "What has to change for them to get what they want?" "Do they get it?" "How?" Then, have him read the chapter carefully and tell you the answers. http://niswc.com/36dRC320271

Acknowledging feelings helps your child manage them: Sometimes when a child has a problem, what she needs most is for a parent or loved one to say, "I can see how upset you are." With those few words, you let your child know that you understand she is feeling sad or frustrated. That gives her some choices. Instead of just showing her distress, she can tell you more about the problem, ask for your help, or begin to look for a solution on her own. http://niswc.com/16dRC320271

It doesn't take a degree to promote learning: You don't have to be an expert in your teen's subjects to help her succeed academically. What matters is that you encourage and enable learning. Give your teen opportunities to research and learn more about things like family purchases and activity options. Ask her to explain new concepts she's learning to you. Ask for her opinions. And show respect for her talents; they may be the foundation of her future career. http://niswc.com/36dQC320271

Focus attention on following directions: Does your child seem forgetful, absent-minded or irresponsible when you give directions? An ability to focus on instructions and carry them out is important to his school success. To help him concentrate, reduce distractions when you speak to him. Turn off the TV. Say things like "I know it's hard for you to pay attention, but I need to see your eyes when I'm talking to you." Then keep your instructions short. http://niswc.com/16dQC320271

You are a key part of your teen's teaching team: The saying, "Parents are a child's first and most influential teachers" is just as true now as it was in elementary school. Here are a few important ways you can expand your teen's education: Encourage him to keep a journal. Read as a family, and let your teen see you read for pleasure. Ask open ended questions that make your teen think. And whenever you can, help your teen make connections between academics and daily life. http://niswc.com/36dPC320271

Teach your child to ask proofreading questions: Careless errors in writing can make your child's points unclear. Before he turns in written work, help him give it a final "once-over." Teach your child to ask: Is every sentence complete, beginning with a capital and ending with a punctuation mark? Does my paper say what I want it to? Have I checked the spelling? Have I used commas and apostrophes as needed? Is my writing legible? Is this my best work? http://niswc.com/16dPC320271

Help your teen handle pressure without melting down: You want to help your student deal with pressures, not add to them. To be a safety valve for your teen, show her you care. Respect her feelings, and avoid making unrealistic demands. Your teen should feel she is working toward her goals, not yours. Teach your teen to view mistakes as learning opportunities, and help her develop good study habits. When studying is routine, it's easier to deal with changing workloads. http://niswc.com/36dOC320271

Supervise when she is researching online. Explain that being listed first in a search doesn't mean a website is better. Discuss ways to figure out if a site is credible. Does it give facts, not opinions? Does it cite sources for information it presents? Can your child confirm the material on other sites? http://niswc.com/16dOC320271

Find special ways to celebrate your teen: As your teen has grown up, your family has probably changed the way you celebrate special occasions. Your teen is too old now for some of the things that would once have thrilled her. But although they may not show it, many teens are sentimental and still love it when you make a fuss. So honor your teen with a special dinner on her birthday, and greet her with a "Wow! You did it!" sign when she achieves a goal. http://niswc.com/36dMC320271

Study goals and short sessions build concentration: Setting goals for study sessions helps students focus and avoid distraction. At your child's next session, help her set a goal for what she'll accomplish in 10 minutes. Set a timer, and when it goes off, check and see if your child has met her goal. Then set another goal for the next 10 minutes. Brain researchers know that children learn more in two short study sessions than in one long one. http://niswc.com/16dMC320271

A rough draft leads to smoother writing: A rough draft is key to a well-written paper. Your teen will get the most benefit from a rough draft if he starts early and gives himself enough time to revise. Have him make a plan: an outline, or thoughts connected by arrows. Then he can write his ideas down quickly. After a break, he should reread his draft and reorganize his ideas, if necessary, to make them flow logically. Now he's ready to write a second draft. http://niswc.com/36dLC320271

To boost reading skills, label the table: If your child is a beginning reader, build her skills by helping her learn to spell the words for the things she sees around her. Write the names of everything in her room on paper labels and attach them to the matching objects. Then ask your child to spell "dresser," for example. At first, she can go to the item and read the spelling from the paper, but after living with the labels for a while, she won't have to. http://niswc.com/16dKC320271

Can your teen solve a sample science problem? Before your teen begins to solve new science problems, have her review a similar problem the teacher solved in class. Challenge her to copy the problem on a clean sheet of paper, put away her notes and try to solve it herself. If she can't, that's OK. She should just work through the problem again, using her notes and the book to remind her what steps to follow and why. Then she can tackle the new problems. http://niswc.com/36dKC320271

Send a positive message about learning: Your actions tell your child many things about your attitude toward learning. Parents who don't look at the work their kids produce are sending the message, "Your work doesn't interest me." Checking only for errors says, "Smart people never make mistakes." Review your child's work, and ask about what he's learning. Tell him that he can get smarter if he works hard, and that smart people learn from their mistakes. http://niswc.com/16dJC320271

Open up communication with your teen: When your teen was young, you may have wished for quiet. Now, you probably wish she'd open up a little more. So get the ball rolling.

Teens often worry that parents will be shocked by what they have to say, so watch your reactions. "Tell me why you think that" works better than "That's ridiculous." http://niswc.com/36dGC320271

Plan screen-free ways to buy yourself some time: Experts agree that it's important to monitor and limit your child's recreational screen time. One way is to think about the times you rely on TV or screen devices as babysitters for your child, and to come up with alternatives. For example, if you turn on a screen to occupy your child while you make dinner, try doing some advance meal preparation. Or invite her into the kitchen to help you cook instead. http://niswc.com/16dFC320271

Help your teen start preparing for exams: Urge your teen to use this time to start preparing for year-end exams. While your teen must do the studying, you can help him do his best. Encourage him to pull together old tests and start reviewing them. Help him set study goals: 20 minutes a day for a week is better than two hours in one night. Help your teen find a distraction-free study area, and make sure he sticks to a regular bedtime that lets him get enough sleep. http://niswc.com/36dDC320271

Can your child detect the mystery word? The next time you and your child are stuck waiting, play a game of Word Detective. Choose a written word you can see (don't say it out loud), and give your child a clue about it, like "Things you wear on your feet." After she finds the word "shoes," it's her turn to choose a word and give you a clue. You'll have fun and your child will get extra practice recognizing words and phrases. http://niswc.com/16dDC320271

Help your teen create a résumé: Whether your teen is thinking of applying for a summer job or her first full-time job, a résumé is a must. To help her prepare one, look for résumé-writing guides online. Your teen doesn't have to have had previous work experience. She can include activities, sports or clubs she participates in, especially ones in which she has been a leader. Have her list her skills, too, such as coding or languages, and any awards she's won. http://niswc.com/36dCC320271

Don't make these common motivation mistakes: You want to motivate your child to do well academically. But saying the wrong thing can have the opposite effect. For example, avoid threats of punishment ("If you don't do an excellent job, there will be no TV for a month.") Also avoid name-calling and nagging ("You're lazy and you'll never get into college if you don't straighten up!"), and comparisons to other people ("Your brother always got A's. What's wrong with you?"). http://niswc.com/16dCC320271

Take precautions when your child plays sports: You don't want your child to be one of the three million kids who get hurt annually playing sports. To promote safety, help your child stay physically fit. Make sure your player knows the basic skills of the sport and wears appropriate protective gear that fits. Have your child drink plenty of fluids and warm up and stretch before playing. And if an injury happens, don't encourage your child to "play through" it. http://niswc.com/16dBC320271

Fun times strengthen family relationships: Maintaining a strong family relationship can support student academics and mental health. To get more from your time with your teen, think fun. Pick a project you can do together. Paint his room a new color. Build a bookshelf for his books. While doing it, tell stories about when he was small or a time you did something embarrassing. Or simply enjoy singing along to music. http://niswc.com/36dAC320271

Avoid using labels that limit your teen: Your daughter is the family athlete, your son is the musician. It's great to celebrate talents, but referring to teens by such labels can actually hold them back. The "athlete" may not try hard in math. The "musician" may avoid sports. Instead, encourage your teens to try on new roles and praise them for trying unfamiliar activities. http://niswc.com/36dBC320271

The state of Texas is strong; our people, resilient. As we have seen in years past, when tested by fire, flood, or hurricane, Texans respond with resilience and calm resolve. And just as we overcame those challenges, we will overcome this one. When neighbors help neighbors, our resilience is redoubled. I have no doubt that Texans will continue to work together in that spirit over the coming days and weeks. And we are here to help. --Governor Greg Abbott

Help your child feel capable of doing hard things: Some kids are willing to try hard, even if the work is tough. Others give up before they get started. What's the difference? It's the kids who believe in their ability to succeed who stick with it. Tell your child that she has what it takes to do a good job. Then remind her that ability without effort won't get the job done. Encourage her to work hard to reach goals that she has the power to achieve. http://niswc.com/16ceC320271

A note-taking system helps teens get more from reading: If your teen's mind wanders when she reads, try this: Divide a sheet of paper into four quarters. In the first, put an exclamation point. This stands for "I didn't know that!" The second gets a question mark for questions your teen has while reading. The third gets a plus and a minus sign, for "I agree/don't agree." The fourth gets a cloud, for "I wonder." As she reads, your teen should make notes in the boxes. http://niswc.com/36ceC320271

Don't let your teen skip a math problem without trying this: If a math problem has your teen stumped, share these problem-solving strategies with him. First, he should try to solve part of the problem, even if he can't do the whole thing. Second, suggest he round off the numbers and try to solve it again. He'll be in the ballpark and can then go back and try the original again. Third, have him estimate an answer based on what he knows. Then he can do the calculations and see if his answer fits. http://niswc.com/36cdC320271

Be flexible when setting curfews Curfews are most effective when parents and teens both have a say in setting them. They should also be flexible, to match the responsibility shown by the teens. Agree with your teen on a "regular curfew" for typical nights. Then you can consider "special-event curfews," which might be earlier or later depending on the circumstances. Agree that your teen will call you if he thinks he'll be late or if his plans change. http://niswc.com/36cVC320271

Use report cards as conversation starters Whether your child's report card is great or shows a need for improvement, use it to enhance your communication with your child and the school. First, talk to your child. Were there grades that surprised him? Made him proud? What does he want to improve? Then, if you have questions, contact the teacher to discuss them. Two-way communication strengthens teamwork…and that helps your child. http://niswc.com/16cVC320271

Start a new tradition with your teen It may not seem like your teen wants to spend time with you, but studies show teens crave connection with their parents. To make sure you have time with your teen, start some rituals together, like going out for a weekend snack or breakfast. Get her involved in making family plans, and sometimes, plan around her interests. Is your teen into sports? Say "There's a game on Saturday I'd love to watch with you." http://niswc.com/36cUC320271

Take steps before leaving your preteen at home alone While young children should never be left at home alone, sometimes parents leave preteens on their own for short periods of time. Before you leave your child home alone, make sure she knows how to reach you. Review what to do in case of fire. Discuss how she should handle phone calls and a knock at the door. Talk about who, if anyone, is allowed in the house and whether your child is allowed to go out. http://niswc.com/16cUC320271

Share a four-step approach to essay tests Teens who are unsure how to approach essay tests are often anxious about them. Share four steps with your teen to build his confidence: 1. Schedule time. Three essays in 40 minutes means 10 minutes for each with 10 minutes to check work. 2. Read the question carefully and circle key words. 3. Make a quick outline by jotting down ideas and deciding how they fit together. 4. Start by writing a quick introduction and conclusion. http://niswc.com/36cTC320271

Your child can keep everyone updated on family activities and improve his writing skills at the same time by putting together a family newsletter. Have him write letters or emails to ask relatives for news, family stories and photos. Then he can use a computer at home or at the library to compile their replies. He'll gain typing, writing and layout skills, and the joy of keeping the family connected. http://niswc.com/16cTC320271

To prevent prejudice, be a model When teaching your child to view others without prejudice, your actions speak louder than words. Keep in mind that physical differences don't have to be the way you identify people: "the man in the blue shirt" works just as well as "the man in the wheelchair." Avoid generalizing and speak of people as individuals. Explain to your child that differences exist, but they don't make anyone less worthy of respect. http://niswc.com/16cQC320271

Give your discouraged teen a boost A teen's self-esteem is a fragile thing. If a bad grade or an argument has your teen down, suggest an "esteem booster" to remind her that she's great: Have her list her positive qualities, or encourage her to do something for herself, like going for a run. Surprising someone else with a nice gesture is another way she can lift her own spirits. If your teen is always down on herself, however, seek professional help. http://niswc.com/36cPC320271

Regular bedtimes help students get enough sleep: Research shows that more than half of all teens are tired in school every day. To help your teen get the necessary sleep to do well in school, establish (and stick to) a bedtime that is at least eight hours before the morning alarm rings. Agree on a homework time that's early enough to let your teen get to bed on time. Then on weekends, limit staying up late and sleeping late in the morning to an hour or two. http://niswc.com/36cOC320271

Restating boosts science comprehension: Reading science is not like reading a novel. Your teen can improve his science comprehension if he translates the text and formulas he reads into his own words. Encourage him to approach the sample problems in his textbook the same way: After reading a problem, he should explain each step in his own words and write the explanation down. Then he can draw a diagram to illustrate the problem. http://niswc.com/36cAC320271

Discuss what to do after making a poor choice: Sometimes, your child will make poor choices. It's what she does next that counts. Teach her these steps for recovering from a mistake: First, admit it. "I watched TV instead of doing my math." Next, accept the consequences. "I'll have to do my math and not watch TV this week." Then, make up for it. "I'll use that TV time to master math skills." Finally, learn from the experience. "Next time I'll do my homework first!" http://niswc.com/16cAC320271

Make the most of extra time: Leap year's extra day is the perfect day to teach your teen to turn small bits of extra time into study opportunities. So if dinner will be in 10 minutes, have your teen spend the time reviewing Spanish vocabulary. If she's going out with friends, have her solve five math problems first. Such short sessions won't replace a longer study time, but your teen will probably find she's using her time more effectively. http://niswc.com/36bcC320271

Help your teen see past the surface of online content: Students these days do a lot of research online. Does your teen know how to figure out whether an online source is reliable?

Is it objective, or is it sponsored by a company or organization to promote a product or agenda? http://niswc.com/36baC320271

Long-distance involvement is worth the effort: Staying involved with your teen's education is important, even when you don't live nearby. To stay connected, make sure school officials know who you are. Make it a point to visit and meet your teen's teachers when you are in town. Ask about getting information by email. You might also ask your teen for videos of his events. Stay in touch with your teen, and always ask how school is going. http://niswc.com/36bZC320271

Encourage table talk at family meals: Experts know that casual talk at the dinner table helps families connect. Children who feel close to their families are also less likely to take part in risky behavior. But conversation is impossible when everyone is focused on a screen. So turn off the TV and other devices during meals. Instead, encourage everyone to share a success. Your family dinners may shield your child from trouble later on. http://niswc.com/16bZC320271

Reduce the risk of risky behavior: Studies show that when parents monitor their teen's activities, the teens are less likely to take part in risky behavior. So, ask where your teen is going and with whom. Have her check in with you when she gets home from school. Get to know her friends and their families. Keep track of how your teen is doing in school.

Dip into your teen's reading: One way to give your student a more in-depth understanding of what he's reading is to read the material yourself. Pick up the article or book he's reading. Read the school-assigned novels. Then, talk with your teen about how the material connects to something in your life. Share your ideas, and ask him to do the same.

Journaling about problems can help teens find answers: If your teen is trying to figure out how to handle a problem she's facing, suggest that she think it through in a journal. Tell her to write down the solutions she's considering and what she thinks might happen as a result of each option. Then she can record what she decides. Later, she can reread her thoughts and add notes to herself for the future. Did her solution work? What would she do differently next time? http://niswc.com/36bWC320271

Reduce conflict by discussing expectations, consequences: Teens deserve more freedom than they had when they were younger. They should also take more responsibility for their behavior. But they still need rules, and that can lead to conflict with parents. To keep it to a minimum, involve your teen in setting expectations.

Show your teen that you are listening: According to one national survey, teens think parents aren't very good listeners. Here are six important ways to listen to your teen (and teach listening by example): pay attention, be open to discussion, stay calm, be courteous, avoid making judgments, disagree in a loving way and encourage his self-worth. One great way to do all these things is to hold regular family meetings. Give everyone a chance to talk and listen. http://niswc.com/36bOC320271

Reward positive effort with a weekend surprise! Tell your child you've planned something special for the weekend, but don't say what it is. Let his imagination build the excitement. After dinner, ask everyone to get into pajamas. Then build a fort with pillows, chairs and blankets. Pop popcorn and put pieces of cut fruit on sticks. Stay up late reading, playing board games and eating your treats. In the morning, serve your child's favorite breakfast. http://niswc.com/16bOC320271

Take a responsibility challenge with your teen - Being responsible means actually doing what we say we're going to do. In order to behave responsibly toward others, we have to learn to follow through on promises we make to ourselves. To get this lesson across to your teen, take a challenge with him: Each of you choose one thing that's been on your to-do list for at least a week and do it today. http://niswc.com/36aaC320271

Help your teen keep track of math's puzzle pieces: Much of math is like a puzzle. It can be hard to see where the new piece fits until you look at the existing pieces. Don't let your teen lose too many pieces of the puzzle. Even if she has no math homework due the next day, encourage her to work at least a few problems every day. This will reinforce the concepts in her mind, and it can help her see how the next assignment fits in. http://niswc.com/36aZC320271

Attitude turns a bad experience into a good lesson: It took Thomas Edison hundreds of tries before he found the right materials for the light bulb. But each time he learned what wouldn't work, Edison got closer to finding out what would, and he kept going. Help your child take that same attitude. When he makes a mistake, ask him what he's learned. Experience is a good teacher, but your child must pay attention. http://niswc.com/16aZC320271

Improve the rhythm of communication: Get your teen to talk about a song he likes and you may hear the music (and your teen) in a new way. Ask, "What do you like about this band? Do the words remind you of anything?" You may also want to share a favorite song of your own. You may never love your teen's music, and he may never think that yours is for him, but your conversations will help you each learn something about the other. http://niswc.com/36aYC320271

Increase privileges along with responsibilities: Children's responsibilities should grow and change as they get older. When giving your child responsibility for a new chore, emphasize the positive reasons for the change. Praise her for being able to do the job "now that she's so grown up." And as you add responsibilities, consider adding privileges, too. A child who is old enough to wash her clothes is also old enough to decide what to wear in the morning. http://niswc.com/16aYC320271

Students get more out of reading when they take notes: Taking notes when reading is one of the secrets to success in high school. Share these tips with your teen to make it easier: Instead of taking notes after every sentence, she should read a section first, then summarize its main ideas. Encourage her to try translating diagrams into words. She should also print. Printing keeps notes legible, and writing notes by hand is more effective for learning than using a computer. http://niswc.com/36aXC320271

Make reading aloud an interactive activity: When you read with your child, try these tips to improve his reading comprehension. Pause from time to time to ask questions about the story, such as, "Why do you think the character did that?" Discuss the pictures, too. Look for words that start with the same letter, and talk about the letter's sound. When you finish reading, have your child act out the story. http://niswc.com/16aXC320271
