Give your child an encouraging signal to keep on trying Your child has been working to master a new skill, but her work shows that she still doesn't understand it. Your words can motivate her…or cause her to give up. Replace "You're still not getting it," with "You haven't quite mastered this yet." The word "yet" sends a signal that your child can get the answer if she just keeps trying. Children are more likely to keep working when they believe they can succeed. https://tpitip.com/?11iU18889

Sharpen your teen's focus with three goals a day Here's a simple exercise that can help your teen focus on fundamentals: Each morning, ask him to spend a few minutes setting up three goals for the day. What is the most important thing he can do today for School? For Self? For Someone else? Focusing on these three S's helps teens get in the habit of thinking about what they can and should do, rather than on worries and concerns they can't do anything about. https://tpitip.com/?31iT18889

Being your child's 'study buddy' is just as important as ever Parents everywhere acted as study buddies for their children last year. This is a vital role to keep playing, even when pandemic conditions improve. Listen as your child reads aloud, and make sure he understands assignment instructions. Help him organize information for a report or use flash cards to study for a test. And whenever possible, notice and praise his efforts and progress. https://tpitip.com/?11iT18889
