Tip of the Month
One of the biggest keys to success in college has shown to be the ability to study. Something we as parents can teach our children in their school age years, before they are out on their own attempting to navigate both college and adulthood.
First and foremost: Create a distraction free place in their room or somewhere in the house that is quiet and without disruption.
Work with them on learning when to take a break, foods that can help keep them from crashing (i.e. blueberries instead of that poptart they've been eyeing in the cabinet), and for the older grade levels a planner can be helpful to keep their assignments and thoughts organized.
Having a dedicated time of study during the day would help them to learn on their own how valuable it is to allot time for certain activities and to prepare ahead of time.
Knowing how to study can make or break success in their college career!
