Identify Any Learning or Social Struggles

It can sometimes be difficult to identify whether your child is struggling with school, either socially or academically, which can lead to bigger problems. In this post, The Tutoring Center, Garland TX has a few easy to follow ways to keep you involved and up-to-date with your child's learning path.

Show Interest - Don't Interrogate

Of course, the best way to find out about your child's educational life is to ask, however this can seem harder than it should. Instead of the classic questions, show interest and build from there. Ask your child something small about their day, then expand, then expand, always showing enthusiasm. Once you have more of a fluid conversation going, you have the opportunity to divert the subject to other things, such as their grades or how they're doing in each class.

Keep in Contact

Another great source of information is your child's teachers and tutors. Make some time to speak with them and get a good understanding of how they perceive you child to be progressing through school. In particular, pay attention to any social aspects the teacher raises, as these could lead to an influence in their schooling.

Listen to Your Children Complain

If your child gets home and they won't stop talking about their day, who pulled who's hair, who cheated on an exam, who is skipping class - all of it. While it may seem like rambling, they are actually giving you insight into their daily school life. Listen carefully to what they're saying and look for points of interest. For example, if your child mentions that another student is skipping class, don't stop them talking, remember the name and then pay attention to whether they talk about hanging out or studying with this student in the future. If you are aware of some potential challenges or influences they may be facing, you are able to help out early on.
