1. Talk to your child. Ask your child about their day.
    • What did you read today?
    • What did you study?
    • What was the best part of your day?
    • What was the worst?
    • How is school going?

          2. Set a regular time for homework.    
              
               Let your child know that you expect them to have homework and school is a priority over other activities.
               
          3. Provide a quite place for your child to do homework and read.

             If this is difficult, consider going to the library or community center.

          4. Remove distractions. 
                
             Phones, internet, video and T.V. will consume your child's life unless you set limits.

          5. Be positive.
     
             Try not to expect perfection on your child's work. Praise them for showing improvement.

          6. Read at home.
     
             Every student at HRMS is expected to read 30 minutes each night. Reading will help them succeed in all subjects.

          7. Expect good grades.
     
             Discuss what grades you expect and follow through with rewards or consequences.

          8. Monitor the time your child spends online and know what sites they're viewing.
     
             Use screening tools to protect your child from inappropriate and unhealthy material.
     
          9. Model positive habits.
     
             Limit your own screen time and interact with your child, play or read.

         10. Get involved.
     
             Attend parent meetings, go to conferences, and meet or contact teachers when you have concerns.
