Understanding Your Middle Grader
The middle years are full of challenges. As children become teens, they display new attitudes and reactions that appear to come out of nowhere. While it may seem like your middle grader is misbehaving, these qualities are actually a normal part of growing up. Here are some typical middle grader behaviors and suggestions for ways to handle them.
Giving and Getting Respect
Being respectful helps your middle grader get along with family members, teachers and peers. This important habit can lead to success in school and in the future. Encourage her/him to treat others well, use good manners and follow rules.
Homework 101
Middle school means more classes to juggle - and more homework assignments to manage. Help your youngster learn more and be successful in school by getting into a good homework routine from the start.
