It's likely your kids want to succeed at school. You can help by constantly checking in with them and giving them a study routine
“Andrew and Sabrina, it's the new school year and let's make it a great one. You're in the big time now – what you do counts. This is where you begin making your future. As a little incentive, here is a list of what you can get if each of you reaches your set goals, and here is another list of what you will lose if you come up short. And remember those important words that we always say: ‘I can do it.' Do you two want to be losers in life? Or are we going to be a family of winners? It's up to you!”
For anyone with teenagers, the start of school is the true new year. So it's natural to want to focus on getting your teenager motivated – setting goals, planning strategies, making resolutions, getting them into the right frame of mind for what's ahead.
