A new school year is upon us, and now’s the time to set the tone for a successful year. As with anything, you need to be both mentally and physically prepared in order to make gains. Mentally, you’ll be at a great advantage if you’re cognizant of your learning style. You’ll also benefit from practicing a growth mindset. Beyond that, developing an organizational system that works for you will be key.
Time to get back into that school routine! I am sure everyone reading this kept up a great routine over the summer, so your child’s back to school transition has been smooth.
The long-awaited summer break is in full swing! Teachers and students everywhere countdown to summer. Now that we’re halfway through vacation and the novelty has worn off, many parents are starting the countdown to the beginning of the next school year.
I love to see kids struggle. Let me rephrase that: I love to see a child persevere through a challenging task and enjoy a sense of accomplishment when he says, “I did it myself!” It has taken me thirteen years of teaching and sixteen years of parenting to learn the value of independent task completion and how to put aside my ego to let students fail and succeed.
