In middle school, the child moves to a new level, he is already familiar with the school, knows how to behave. But if in the primary grades he studied well, then in the middle grades there may be a decrease in academic performance, the child is more and more distracted by some other things. At this time, parents definitely need to follow the development of their child and again involve him in school.
Planning. Help your child plan their time. When a child moves from elementary school to middle school, the whole structure of education changes completely: new teachers, subjects and assignments. Learning is getting harder. The child must learn to cope with these difficulties. Put together a routine, use a calendar. Set aside time for study, rest, and work. Let the child play the leading role in planning his time, and let the adults only help and control him so that the time is distributed correctly and evenly.
The control. In elementary school, you most likely did your homework with your child all the time, or at least supervise its completion. In high school, you need to ease the onslaught a little, give your child the opportunity to do their homework on their own. Do not engage in continuous pressure. It is important that your child starts learning for himself, not for you. Let him know that he needs good grades.
Self-esteem. Try to raise your child's self-esteem. Poor academic performance is directly related to low self-esteem. Set your child in a positive mood, support him, allow him to act on his own.
