Supporting Your Child at Home
Help your child by setting boundaries and expectations when using the laptop at home. This includes helping your son or daughter set study routines. Many students report wasting time and reduced focus on school work when they are multitasking. While connecting with friends is important, knowing the limits is important. Help your child turn off distractions while studying and plan in break times when they can connect with friends or play games.
