Parenting Tip Sheets - School Age
What you do and say helps your child perform better at home and at school. Loving words and actions — from mom, dad or loving adult — help kids learn and succeed.
When parents and caregivers are involved, kids:
- Attend more days of school,
- Get better grades,
- Are less likely to use alcohol, drugs and tobacco, and
- Are less likely to drop out of school.
Help your child deal with feelings, friends, bullies, grades and sports. To discuss these or other topics, call Parent Help Line.
