Help Your Child Succeed in School

Kim wanted her son Ben to do well in school. Her son had brought home a note that said, “A good school becomes a great school when parents get involved. Studies show that when parents are involved, their children are more successful.”

How could she help? What could she do? She was a busy person. How much time would it take? Kim was unsure of where to start. She talked to Ben’s teacher. The teacher gave Kim some ideas.

Kim began ​reviewing​ Ben’s homework each night. After supper, they would both sit at the table and look through his backpack. Kim reviewed papers that Ben brought home. Ben did his homework.

Kim also had lunch with Ben twice a month. Ben loved when his mom came to school! A wide smile would ​appear​ on his face. It also proved to be a good way for Kim to get to know some of Ben’s classmates.

Kim felt good. Billy was doing well. He was getting his homework done. He was getting good grades. He was friends with some very nice kids. Ben also felt good. He knew his mom cared about him while he was at school and at home.
