Encouraging Academic Responsibility and Independence
February 3, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
SPONSORED BY THE ALBERT & ETHEL HERZSTEIN CHARITABLE FOUNDATION
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
There is no question about it; all parents want their children to experience school success. But the challenge many parents face is how to facilitate success. Homework time is often perceived as a stressful time for both parents and their children. This stress causes power struggles and unproductive academic performance in the home. Homework is intended to provide opportunities for parents to encourage their child’s effort, initiative and persistence. Discover how simple, everyday parent/child interactions can strengthen academic skills and teach responsibility, problem solving and decision-making skills that will improve your child’s academic performance. Ideas for effective parent/school collaborations will also be discussed.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED FOR ALL ATTENDEES PRIOR TO THE EVENT. Check in will begin 15 minutes prior to the program beginning. Due to video filming, late attendees will be asked to view the presentation in the Green Room.
