While some parents might choose to home educate their children, others find that tutoring can be quite helpful.If your child’s report cards keep getting worse and worse, a private tutor or even group sessions might prove to be helpful.
Pam is the proud mother of two grown children, Lauren, who is a Special Education teacher in the La Habra School District and a son, Greg, who is a TV and Film editor.
For parents who cannot afford private tutoring, there are many state-sponsored tutoring services available.
Another option would simply be to try to help your child with homework and projects yourself.
For example, you could say, “This gives you something to strive for,” or “I noticed you got a ‘B’ in Math! ” Try to find at least one good thing to say to your child.
Even if the entire report card is completely rotten, something like, “I know you’re trying your best,” can go a long way in making your child feel loved.
