Have a Bad Day at School?
Bad days. We all have them now and then. But how can you help your kid after a particularly bad day at school? First, just listen if he wants to talk. Then offer to troubleshoot the problem. Perhaps he needs a tutor for a hard class or to role play a problem he’s having with a friend. If he doesn’t want to talk, give him some space. Or, find a fun distraction. Also, make sure he has a life outside of school. Extracurricular activities provide other friends and other interesting things to do. If the problem sounds serious, like bullying, you should contact the school.
