You’ve worked hard to help your kids move through the early grades. And all in all, it’s gone ok.
They’ll always be your children. But they’re not little kids anymore. Teens now. Damn that went fast. And you know the next step will go in a flash.
“I have years before college. Don’t worry.” Years, sure. Really long time.
And how is that school getting them ready? How well are those teachers really preparing them? To get into college. A good college. And to make it once they get there. With a solid major. One that will help get a job.
This time seems so important. Critical. But what turmoil.
Schools keep changing. More tests. More standards. Now drive deeper with the common core. Oh, but it’s really about the projects. Is there a plan or a just plan of the day? What makes them think they’ve figured it out this time?
It’s so chaotic now. Where do you even fit in? Is there anything you can do?
You’re no tiger mom, you know that. Not to mention you’re insanely busy. You can’t keep up with all they’re learning now. You’re not ready to totally bow out either. Isn’t there a middle way? Something you can do?
Yeah, there is.
It doesn’t take a lot of time. You just have to be a little crafty to pull it off. Subtle. Sneaky.
The idea is simple. Schools teach content, but not how to study. Your role is to bridge the gap. You can coach your teen to become an independent learner. School is their training ground. Teachers are subject matter experts. Your focus is on technique. Helping your teen build useful strategies to learn any subject.
I’ve thoroughly researched the key study habits that get good grades (and sorted out lots of junk in the process). With a critical eye on the science. And I’ve personally put the approach into practice with my own kids. You can make it work too.
