Apr.1, 2014: It’s #GoodNewsTuesday!
Here is a story from one of our clients: “My child used to cry every Sunday night because she hated to go to school and felt ‘dumb.’ After three weeks with LifeManagement, she is SO excited about math, the one subject that she’s been struggling in and felt defeated in – and that is all because of her work with her LMC tutor! She comes home every day with new games she wants to play with her us involving math. Now she asks me, ‘Aren’t you proud of me mommy?’ ” – Parent of a 1st grader

Jan.1, 2014: Happy New Year from LMC!
Many of us use this time to make plans and set goals for the upcoming year. Here are a couple of tips to get your school semester started off right:
• Help your child make a homework plan. Predict the time required for each assignment and the goal he/she is working toward. For example, if your child brings home a math worksheet, the goal might be to complete at least half the problems in 20 minutes with at least 80 percent accuracy. Let your child’s age and capabilities determine the length and goal of each homework session. Once she has met the goal, he/she can take a five-minute break. Keep the television off and cell phones out of sight, so it’s easier for him/her to return to work.
• Start a homework group: Invite one or two kids from your child’s class to come over and do a little homework together. This can be an effective way to get a look at other children’s studying strategies, and the chance to play for a while when homework is done is a strong incentive to do the work more efficiently. Many young children like to play “school” and they can take turns being the teacher reviewing spelling words or making up math problems.Want more information or need some help keeping your student organization?
