Discuss School With Your Child: Talk to your kids about school. What are they learning? How do they like their teacher? Where do they sit in class and is this causing any distractions? Do they need more time to take tests? If there are any indications of problems, call or email their teacher or their school counselor about having a conference. This is within your rights and as long as you keep the communication cordial, your child should get the help they need.
