(2/27) Use expectations to show your teen the way
Setting expectations is like giving your teen a road map. Without them, there's no guarantee she'll end up at her final destination. With them, she'll be able to find her way. To make sure your map is clear, help your teen set education goals and figure out how to meet them. Have her create routines for schoolwork, and discuss the link between effort and outcome. Talking regularly about school shows that you expect her to take it seriously.
