I have three children, and like most working parents, I am busy from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed. When my son recently brought home a report card with a grade lower than he usually gets, I was shocked. However, I wasn't angry at him, but instead angry at myself -- I had been so busy that I hadn't been having frequent discussions with my children about how they were performing in each and every class. I always asked them how their days went, but this made me realize that I had to spend more time each day discussing their classes with them. I know there are other busy parents out there, so I decided to make a blog to share my tips for helping children get the most out of their K-12 educations when you are a busy parent.
