Tip of the Week: Fall Grading Period

Where are you from? You might think I’m referring to where you were born, or where you live now – actually, I mean: Where do you identify with, when you think of ‘home’ – what do you think of?

I grew up in a house where homework was done at the kitchen counter. Mom was just an “I-need-help” call away. Dinner was served at 5pm. And, everyone washed their hands before sitting down. I hope that is where my kids are growing up, too.

As the end of the first grading period comes to a close, many of us – parents, grandparents and other important people in our families lives – ask “how are the kids doing in school – we wanted to share that the family meal is making an impact.

No matter if it is dinner at 5pm, or 6:15, like my own family tries to do – or Saturday brunch. Or, maybe like someone else in our office – your family gathers for a big, all-round-the-table breakfast each morning. These connections help your kids study habits, which helps their grades – which means that parent teacher conference you might have coming up, might go that much more smoothly.

And, even if it doesn’t – at the table you can discuss what the heck happened to that homework that you KNOW they did! Happy fall grading period!
