Kids are famous for having a lack of organization. Dealing with lost homework, crinkled papers, and forgotten permission slips can be frustrating. Some kids are natural organizers, but most kids have to be taught.

It is sometimes a challenge for tweens and teens to maintain appropriate classroom behavior. As social circles evolve and kids search for a place to fit in, acting out in class may be a sign that they need your guidance. Adolescents undergo major changes, both physically and socially, and taking the time to ensure that your child is comfortable in his own skin can improve his classroom behavior, and help keep him out of detention and on the right academic track.

Kids often complain that they don’t like school, that they’re bored, or that school isn’t fun. Although every parent wants their child to be happy, going to school just isn’t negotiable. School is an important part of a child's life. During the time kids are at school, they interact with friends, have lunch, learn, and adapt their behavior to a variety of people and social situations. In fact, much about school is learning to deal with social pressures.

Each and every day, your child learns and experiences both positive and negative ideals and habits from their peers. As parents, we want our kids to do and be their best. But, as parents, we also know that, at times, our kids are bound to do something that just isn't very smart. What should you do if you receive a call from the teacher, or get a notice that your child is being disciplined and there is a problem with classroom behavior?

You've probably seen bumper stickers that boast "My child is an honor student at.... School." Every parent wants his or her child to do the best she can--but are grades a good indicator of effort and ability? A great deal of emphasis is put on getting good grades, and grades have traditionally been considered a good indicator of student progress. As your child enters middle school or junior high, and eventually high school, grades take on even more importance as she prepares for college.

Helping improve student behavior is a task that most parents and teachers dread. It's important to get involved in your child's day-to-day life, but not too involved; you want to make sure your child is doing his work, but avoid nagging him. Yes it may take some work, but the outcome is well worth the effort. Your child will actually appreciate that you are interested in helping him to succeed.

Homework probably doesn't rank on your teen’s list of Top Ten Fun Things to Do. While some kids complacently do their homework assignments, others need to be pushed, asked, and maybe even offered rewards or incentives.
