The school year is drawing to a close to over and for many kids the final two months of school mean standardized testing, final exams and the pressure of finishing strong. Below are a few tips to help your kid(s) stay on track to finish the year strong.

  1. Create a routine: Establishing a routine can help your child feel organized and in control, which can reduce stress and anxiety. Set a regular bedtime and wake-up time, plan out meals and snacks, and schedule designated study and play times.
  2. Review schoolwork and grades: Take the time to review your child’s grades and progress reports with them, and work together to identify any areas where they might need additional support or resources. Encourage them to ask their teachers questions and seek out extra help if needed.
  3. Stay involved: Stay involved in your child’s school life by attending parent-teacher conferences, volunteering at school events, and checking in with your child’s teacher on a regular basis. This can help you stay informed about your child’s progress and any issues that may arise.
  4. Encourage healthy habits: Make sure your child is getting enough sleep, eating healthy meals, and getting regular exercise. This can help them stay focused and energized during the school day.
  5. Celebrate successes: Celebrate your child’s successes, both big and small. This can help boost their confidence and motivation as they approach the end of the school year.

Remember, every child is unique, and what works for one child may not work for another. Tailor your approach based on your child’s individual needs and strengths, and be flexible and adaptable as needed.
