  • 6 Ideas for Middle School Parents
    also the site of many a melt down so be prepared 2 Don t belittle the social pressures Peer pressure can become pretty intense in middle school You need to reinforce your own family values so your children know they have something to stand on They will eventually find their group of friends But let your children navigate their own social situations don t step in and be the helicopter parent or your child will never develop their own coping skills 3 Listen to your children Pay attention to today s lunch table drama Be willing to listen because they don t always want your suggestions Show interest in the things that interest them 4 Keep your kids appropriately busy but not overloaded We had a rule in our house you must do three activities one must be physical like dance or a sport one must be creative like playing an instrument or acting in a play and one must be community oriented These pursuits provide balance and other outlets to develop new groups of friends But too many activities in middle school can be hard both on the academics and the pocketbook Middle school is a crucial time to develop a sense of self and that includes finding the right look so they can feel good about themselves 5 Who is that in the mirror I used to tell my husband that when our girls would look in the mirror they had no idea who was looking back at them Middle school is a crucial time to develop a sense of self and that includes finding the right look so they can feel good about themselves Sometimes the clothes do matter and you might want to let your child buy the right boots or the in jeans or the

  • Q&A with Jessica Lahey, author of The Gift of Failure - Your Teen for Parents
    I don t think you re capable of handling this So what would you say to the parent of an incoming middle schooler Start from a place of being really honest with your kid I ve been doing a lot for you You re going into sixth grade and so now is the time for you to learn how to do more of this for yourself And then set super clear expectations I expect that your homework will get done on time be done well and to completion and get in the hands of your teacher If that does not happen then X will be your consequence The details are up to you the when the where the how the order you do your homework in You can ease into this or you can do it all at once but letting the details be in the hands of your child is really really important What if your child is in high school It s not too late right Right But honesty is so important at this point Saying Look I read this book or I talked to this person and I realize we re doing this parenting thing a little bit wrong and I d like to make some changes We haven t been giving you enough autonomy We haven t been allowing you to feel competent on your own and that changes now The problem is if you ve waited a really long time there is going to be that inevitable honeymoon phase and then a push back phase Teenagers just like toddlers will test to see where the lines are and it s important in that testing phase to hold your ground and say No really We re not going to step in and help you with this We will support you We will help you think about how to talk to your teachers But we are really going to stick to this You have to get through that testing period and then things will slowly improve I love middle school because it s the ideal place to give kids the space and room to mess up and figure out how to get it right It s set up that way Is there such a thing as too much failure Parents have different comfort zones with how much they re willing to allow their children to fail Some parents are going to see a B as a failure and time to step in And for some parents it won t be until their child has failed a class Ask yourself What s the worst that is going to happen They may have to go to summer school or repeat a class but really what they re learning is how to take ownership of their lives Being able to step back and see the big picture is so important This night s homework is less important than the bigger principle at hand It s different for every parent I
