1. Use technology to your advantage- you can look up your child's grades every week on GradeCam to make sure they are staying on top of their work. You can also check attendance and tardies.
2. Put your kids in extracurricular activities- it's proven that kids who are involved in things within their school have better grades, attendance and do better in college.
3. Be their parent, not their friend- kids need guidance and parenting at this age, not another friend!
