Be Be Responsible

We believe that by implementing such strategies we will problem behavior, increase positive behavior, academic engagement, as well as increase academic performance.
Routines Can Build Responsibility
As routines become habits, children are calmer and things run smoothly. Your child will also learn to be responsible for doing his/her part to keep the routines on track.
It is a good idea to create a routine for:
Mornings- Follow a regular schedule for everything your child needs to do, from getting up, making the bed, eating breakfast, and walking out the door.
Homework- Set a consistent time and place for homework.
Reading- Choose a regular time for reading. You can read aloud as a family or have your child read quietly on his/her own.
Bedtime- Did you know that the recommended average amount of sleep for school age children, ages 5 to 12 is 10 to 11 hours a night? The National Sleep Foundation claims the #1 tip for good sleeping habits in children is to follow a nightly routine.
