How important is being cool to your child’s education? Really?
Is your Child to Cool for education?
EDUCATION & SCHOOL SHOPPING FOR TEENS AND PRE-TEENS
Is the daily peer pressures that many of our kids deal with today seem to be far greater than they were years ago when we were in school. Have you finished your school shopping for you kids? If not, try this. When you’re are outschool shopping, listen to the frustration that comes from their mouth when they say “But Mooom!” asking for those new clothes.
The world has issues going on but in the mind of a teenager or pre-teen the reality of the oil spill can’t compare to third period or those cute shoes that were on sale. Maybe those shoes will help her grades? It’s worth a try. If you try it, tell her specifically what you expect. Not as a bribe. Whether she does well or not let her know this is a gift. But let her know what you expect out of her.
THE GRATEFUL TEENAGER, LOL
Yeah, of course teenage son or daughter could be more considerate and grateful but don’t you remember when you were just a teen. For your kids to begin being a bit more grateful just use words like thank you and you’re welcome with them A LOT more. They will get it sooner or later.
