"It's well-documented that parent involvement helps kids do better in school, but during the busy school year, it can be tough to set aside quality time with the kids. That's why a nationwide campaign is asking parents to have meaningful moments with their kids every day.



The Be There campaign encourages parents to do simple things to connect with their kids, like smiling, making eye contact, and asking questions about school. The idea is that these small steps show kids you care about them and their education. Schools in several Virginia communities recently signed on to the campaign, which will get the word out to parents through billboards, banners, and fliers sent home with students.



I'd love to hear from you on this. When things get crazy at your house, how do you break free from distractions and connect with your kids?
