“A mystery to earlier generations, this child-proof age group is self-assured, stressed, and straight. Born into an era of the wanted and watched child, these techno wizards accept authority, follow the rules, crave structure, and are smarter then they might first appear. Eight out of ten think it’s cool to be smart.”

ideas

Encouraging co-curricular activities

Ideas?
collaborating with parents
Collaborating with parents

Encourage parents to have their children participate in co-curricular activities.

We know the impact they can have, but parent’s don’t always see them this way.

Teach parents about important things on your campus. They want to help, but need direction in knowing how to best do that. Educate parents about the services available to help students.

If your institutional size will allow for this, let parents meet faculty members. This way, they can more comfortably refer their sons/daughters to speak with faculty
