Helpful tips for social stability for parents and students.
"How to Assist in Building A Scholar's Discipline and Focus".
- Set a good example. (Children are very observant, and they imitate what they see. If you want them to be disciplined, make sure that you set a good example for them).
- Provide structure. (Children need structure so that they can focus on the task at hand without getting distracted by something else).
- Give positive feedback. (This helps build self-confidence in children, which encourages them to try harder next time. This eliminates them from giving up when things don't go as planned at first glance).
- Help them set goals. (Setting goals can be a very effective way to learn how to manage their time and focus better).
These strategies are being implemented daily at Jefferson Davis County School District: positive attitudes, high expectations, and accountability!
