  3. Look familiar?

  4. Motivation- not just for the kids! Parental support is 8 times more important in determining a child’s academic success than social class. The Campaign for Learning found that parental involvement in a child’s education can mean the difference between an A* and an ‘also-ran’ at GCSE.

  5. What you can do… • Give them a sense of control • Build in rewards • Talk to them • Praise when earned

  6. She always panics in exams and I’m worried that she won’t cope. Always the last minute with everything. He tells me to “chill” but I seem to be the only one who is worried! I only asked what she wanted for tea. Now the door is off it’s hinges and we’re not talking- again! Going out again! He’s got exams coming up. I don’t understand half of what she does. How can I help?
