Here are three tips on how to keep your child focused in the classroom after the holiday break.
Go over expectations- Establishing expectations with your child will ensure that they know what’s expected from them. Letting them know that they must pay attention in class and do well in school will only motivate them to make you proud. Establishing guidelines like listening to the teacher and not misbehaving will only lead them to the right direction
Make rules- Laying down some rules will only serve wonders for your child. Make simple rules like: they can only play video games after school if they finish their homework first. Or they can only go out on the weekend if they’re all caught up with their studies/readings. These rules will only encourage your child to perform to the best of their ability.
Make sure they get enough sleep- One of the biggest reasons why students aren’t focused in the classroom is because they’re lacking sleep. Make sure your child gets at least 8-10 hours of sleep per night so that they are alert and ready to go for the next day of school. Monitor your child’s sleeping habits and develop an early bedtime routine for them. This will only ensure that they are well rested and ready to fully engage in the classroom.
