Parents are often as excited as their children, waiting and watching by the window to see the first flakes of winter fall. When we were young, we watched the school closings scroll across the bottom of the screen on WLOS. Now, we obsessively refresh our browsers or social media applications waiting to see the announcement, "School Closed Today."



Thanksgiving and Christmas are wonderful holidays, providing opportunities for families to reconnect after a busy Fall full of school, sports, and other extracurricular activities. However, with lengthy breaks from the rigorous academic lectures and homework, it can be difficult for students to get back in the swing of school after New Years.

As we approach the end of the semester and Christmas break, we want to provide parents with resources for helping children maintain effective study habits during the holiday season.

If your child is in middle or high school, school is their full-time job. As parents leave for work at their career job each morning, a student similarly prepares for their future from early in the morning often through the evening and into the nighttime hours. Staring at textbooks and papers can be as daunting and time-consuming as any nine-to-five job, often leading to academic overload for children who are just beginning to learn how to administrate their time.

If your child is struggling with academic overload, or they are struggling to finish an assignment in a timely manner, we want to help you identify the issues and work toward solutions that will ultimately help your students thrive in their academic pursuits.
