Surviving School

Just in time for the end of the school year, here are some good tips from an article on

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.
