When your parents ask what you did in school, tell them something about your day. For example, “Well, in English we started reading this new book about...” Your parents will like the fact that you’re talking to them about what’s going on in school. A good way to involve your parents is to ask them for help once in a while. You could, for example, ask a parent to listen to a speech, read over a paper you have written, or help you study for a test. You’ll get better grades, and your parents will see that you’re really trying to do well in school. If you ever have a problem with a teacher, class, or another student, let your parents know. They can help you deal with any situation. Take responsibility for your grades. If you get a good grade on an assignment or test, be proud of your accomplishment. If you receive a poor grade, don’t make excuses. Take responsibility for your grade, and then figure out how you can get a better grade the next time. Always do your own work.
