Establish Rules and Routines that Reinforce: Don’t allow television until all homework is complete; make sure your child is in bed by the same time every night to ensure a good night’s sleep; read with your child beginning at a young age and encourage good study habits. With preteens and teens, keep all electronics outside their room overnight so they don’t miss out on their sleep by staying up chatting or texting with friends. Routines like these show your child that learning is a high priority in your household.
