As a parent, you probably know your child the best.  If you know that your teen gets easily distracted, encourage them to pay attention in class.  Also, tell your teen that they will learn most just by paying attention to the lecture in class.

3. Be Nice To Your Teacher

Starting off a school year on a wrong foot with the teachers can affect the entire school year.  Tell your teen that it is necessary to be polite with teachers and to show them respect, if they want to be respected in return.

Furthermore, it is also essential that you encourage your team to be nice to other students, too.  Bullying and teen violence, are some of the most common problems at schools.  It is important to make sure that your teen doesn’t harass anyone, just as much as it is important to make sure that your teeny isn’t harassed by anyone.

5. Be Punctual!

Tell your teen that you expect from them to be punctual and arrive on time.  Also, make sure you give your own example to your teen: be punctual and always respect arrangements, especially when you are accompanied by your child.

6. Do Your Homework Regularly!

Encourage your teen to do their homework on a regular basis.  Also, do not refrain from asking about to their homework, their projects, and offered them help if you see they need some.  If your
child procrastinates with their homework, find something you can do, like filling in forms, and have them do their homework while you do that.  In this way, you will be able to do something together.
