Parents, students and school personnel survived the first week of school. Congratulations to all of you.
To the parents who opted to do virtual learning this semester, discipline is going to be your super power. So what is discipline? Getting up on time, have breakfast, get school dressed, have homework done and play attention as if your child was in class physically. Parents must take the lead in this type of discipline. If children think they can negotiate with their parents to not complete assignments, not log on to their class or decide to play electronic games, you are losing.
Parents set up a schedule, discuss it with your child and stick to it. Please make time for recreation, arts and crafts and finding creative ways to see grandparents and friends. Just know, we will get through this together.
