Study Tip of the Week

Study Tip of the Week:  Each family has a different routine for dealing with report cards and midterms when they come home from school.  You may consider incorporating the following elements into yours:

a.       Read and discuss the grades and comments together with your spouse.  This can be a great opportunity for God to reveal potential blind spots in your parenting.

b.      Make time to sit down with your child, without any distractions, and read over the report together.  Explain the different categories, discuss any areas in which you see progress or a drop, and make a plan for how to finish off the quarter.

c.       Pay attention over the next few weeks and talk to your child further about the plan to see if it is working.

d.      Sign and return the bottom of the midterm (elementary).  Take a few minutes to jot down an encouraging note to the teacher in addition to your signature.  One of the most effective ways to raise thankful and grateful kids is to be thankful and grateful in their presence.

Doing these things will help reinforce to your child that you love them, that you value their education, and that you are interested in seeing them be successful at Logos.
