Your teen needs to know that you are interested in his academic success. That's why it's important to talk with him every day about what is happening in his classes. Listen to his worries, and don't scold or argue if he shares bad news. Instead, brainstorm ways to improve the situation, and reinforce what you think the school is doing right. Tell your teen he has your support, and you believe he can succeed.

The holiday break is over. Now is the time to help your teen regain momentum. Have her designate a regular time for schoolwork, studying and reading, if she hasn't already. Make sure she schedules time for regular exercise, too. Then encourage your teen to think about her higher education goals, and help her learn about classes she'll need to take and grades she'll need to earn to reach them. http://niswc.com/37aDC327133

Most days, teens and parents talk about topics such as schedules, meals or schoolwork. This is necessary talk, but it's not what brings families closer. At least once a day, make time to ask your teen about something that doesn't involve the tasks at hand. Ask him about a feeling, an interest or an idea he might have. You may learn more about your teen, and he'll know you care what he thinks.

Most adults have routines that make their lives easier. Students need help developing them. To help school days run smoothly, encourage your teen to turn three routines into habits: Have her get organized for the next day at night, not in the morning. Have her to do her assignments at the same time each day. And make sure she sets aside at least 20 minutes a day for pleasure reading.

Having goals can keep students motivated to learn all year long. Sit down with your teen and agree on some broad, school-related goals. Does he need to beef up reading or math skills? What new things does he want to learn? Have your teen make a list of specific things he will do to accomplish his aims. Each day at school will give him opportunities to take action and come closer to reaching his goals.
