Tips to make the school year the best it can be

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

Every student has his or her way of making it through the school year. Some are very studious and regimented, working hard for good grades. Others coast through tests and homework with ease. Still, others have a more laissez-faire attitude toward school in general, preferring more of the social aspect of classes than the actual coursework.

Regardless of your son or daughter's disposition, there are certain universal tips and techniques that families can use as a whole to help improve this school year. Here are some ideas to consider, courtesy of Dr. Fresh, makers of dental and hygiene products.

* Feed the body and the mind. A strong educational background can go a long way toward future success.

* Put pride in appearance. Although the adage of "don't judge a book by its cover" is certainly something to consider, the fact of the matter is that outward appearance can influence others' perceptions of a person.

* Give organization an overhaul. Is yours a family that is very organized or more a jumble of activity? Organization and school success can very well go hand-in-hand.
