ASK IMPOIRTANT QUESTIONS

Did you have a fight with someone? Did the teacher say something that upset you?

Did you get a bad grade on a test? Are you having trounle at the bus stop or on the bus?

Are you having a hard time with one of your subjects?

 

IF YOU SUSPECT A LEARNING PROBLEM: TALK WITH THE TEACHER ASAP.

 

ROLE PLAY SOCIAL SKILLS

If your child has difficulty making friends, you can boost needed social skills  by role playing

various senarios that can help your child to approach peers in a more confident way.

 

CHECK WITH THE TEACHER

If your child isn’t willing to talk or can’t articulate why he/she hates school,  the teacher may be able to shed some

light on the subject.

 

DISPEL THE PHYSICAL

Ask about distractions: Can you see the board clearly? Can you hear the teacher? Are you sitting in the back of the

classroom? Keep probing until you are satisfied that the problem is not physical.
