Tip 1: Turn off the TV, Video Games, Cell Phones and Computers

With the new school year starting, every parent is trying to get organized and ready for a successful grading period. There are some very important things that you can do to make sure your child is getting the "Best Education Possible". These tips are in no specific order of importance. So, check out the next few week's  post to get some very important information for a great 2011-2012 school year.

TIP #1: Turn the TV, video games, cell phones, and the computers (unless they are doing school work) off during the week.

The parents that eliminate or limit the use and viewing of TV, video games, cell phones and computer find that their children read more or have more creative play. These children do better in school and have better grades. There is nothing more distracting then these current day electronics. If you don't totally eliminate their use, I would suggest they not be able to use any of them until all homework is completed and 15-30 minutes of recreational reading for younger children and 30-60 minutes for older children. After that I would limit their use to 15-45 minutes a night. (no more than 60 for older children). Have your child pick what game, show, or friend they want to call and make sure they stick to the agreed amount of time. If you make it a habit there will be no arguments. So, start the school year off right and turn off the TV, video games, cell phones, and computers.
