Choose a communication station in your home to display a family calendar. Have each family member update as activities arise so everyone’s schedule is readily available. Remember to encourage everyone to check it daily.
Keep or donate. Since you’re child got new clothes and shoes for the school year, donate the gently used clothes they’ve outgrown. Sort through items along with your child and discuss what should be kept and what should be donated.
Create a file. Help your children file their graded school work and handouts in designated folders. Color code by subject to make retrieval easy.
Prepare a study area. Allow your child to pick out an appropriate study area you both agree on. Outfit it with an adequate amount of workspace and supplies to limit distractions. Also, designate a time to complete all studying and homework daily.
