Just in time for the end of the school year, here are some good tips from an article on MyWestTexas.com:
Drs. Nicolas Long and Rex Forehand offer the following suggestions in their book, "Making Divorce Easier on Your Child:"
-- Work on strengthening your relationship with your child. Several studies have indicated that if a child has a good relationship with at least one parent following divorce, his or her grades are higher.
-- Closely monitor your child's school performance; that is: check on homework; review tests and assignments; and maintain a close working relationship with your child's teachers.
-- Tell your child's teacher about the divorce so that you can work together to minimize its impact.
-- Try to have a regular time for doing homework; usually before your child starts watching TV or playing video games.
