Tips for a Better School Year

With School Starting, Kids Need more than Supplies and a Ride to School

We have tips on how parents can help their child have a more successful school year, and it doesn’t have anything to do with supplies, studying, testing, grades or attendance. A child at any grade needs these things. A child at any intelligence level needs these things. Therefore these tips are directed to ALL parents. While some of these may seem like they are a given, statistics indicate that a large percentage of children show up to school not ready to learn because they don’t eat nutritious food, don’t get enough sleep, or have other disruptions at home. Pamela Settle, Family Advocate and owner of GoodLiving Media, brings her top ten tips.
