Are you a bottom line kind of person? You don’t want to read article after article, book after book. What you really want is the bottom line.
If you’re a bottom line person, this list is for you.
Here are five of my best high schooling tips, straight up.
Always be ready with help and support, but gradually place more and more responsibility on your student.
Involve your teen in all choices that directly affect him/her, or could potentially affect him/her.
Forget everything you thought you knew about high school, then create a personalized high school experience for your student instead.
Imagine your student having THE most successful finish (i.e., graduation), and then use the next four years to figure out how to get him/her there.
There is much more to high school than just academics.
There’s your bottom line.
Have questions? I’m always glad to help.
