Simple Steps for Student Success in School  
Students are back in school and now is the time for parents to develop routines to help their children succeed academically. Kimberly Greder, an associate professor and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach family life specialist, says parental involvement, more than income or social status, is a predictor of student achievement. - See more at: http://www.news.iastate.edu/news/2014/08/26/schoolsuccess#sthash.6ajhsTC7.dpuf

Dr. Greder suggests parents take these proactive steps to avoid problems in school or potential dropout:
  • Regularly talk with your child about his or her school day
  • Encourage reading at home and be a role model to read regularly
  • Talk to your child’s teachers and school counselor for updates on grades and behavior, and identify resources available to help your child at school 
  • Watch who your child hangs out with and make sure they are doing healthy activities
  • Get your child involved in activities or sports to develop leadership skills and positive communication and conflict resolution skills.

Tolerance  
The following is a stunning realization for the need for tolerance for all around us.
