Until the COVID-19 situation goes away, parents have an essential role to play to ensure that learning goes on. High school students still need to prepare adequately for the SATs. They also need to learn how to balance the demands with social life and extracurricular activities.
Now more than before, online learning is proving to be quite crucial for all students. If the school that your son or daughter attends does not have an online learning program, now is high time to hire the services of a tutor.
The following are some of the ways that you can help your child succeed in online learning.
Support with Homework Expectations
It’s your responsibility to ensure your teen has a well-lit, quiet and distraction-free learning environment. Stock it with supplies and other homework-related resources so that they can concentrate on the subject at hand. Make sure to pop in from time to time to ensure that they haven’t become distracted.
Regularly sit down with your teenage son or daughter to go over the materials provided by online classes to make sure it is well balanced. Help them stick to the study schedule and homework.
Make Sure They’re Ready to Learn
Prepare your teenage daughter or son by providing a nutritious breakfast. Just like regular schools, online learning requires a good amount of energy to boost concentration and attention span. A breakfast rich in fiber, proteins, and whole grains is quite sufficient before the start of the first session.
The teenagers also need the right amount of sleep to support physical and mental development. Make sure that they get at least 8 to 9 hours of sleep every night. Limit TV, video games and phone time to minimize distractions. To encourage regular sleep patterns, the teens should go to sleep at the same time and get up at the same time daily.
