A Lot to Learn: 7 Critical Dos and Don'ts for a Successful School Year
Now that the initial back-to-school adjustment period (a.k.a. when my kids act like crazed monkeys because they can't handle major schedule changes) is over, it's time for me to start thinking about ways to set them up for success this year. So I spoke with my friend Ann Dolin, who is a very smart and fancy author, and an education expert. She gave me some suggestions for things I could be doing to help my kids academically. She shared several dos and don'ts, and I'm very grateful for that! I have to say, I think I might be most grateful for the don'ts. Some of her don'ts were things I was doing or saying, and I'm about to put a hard stop on them. Check out her suggestions and find out how you can set your kids up for success in school. -By Julie Miner
