A big change can include switching schools, moving from middle school to high school, or even starting a new semester of classes.
As a parent, you can talk with school officials or other parents to get your teen together with a more experienced student. A fellow student might help your teen in several ways. The most important is help with study skills. The two of them might study together.
If your teen is in a new school, she might want to spend one day tagging along with an experienced student. This student could show her around, suggest classes to take and give her the “scoop” on her teachers.
After-school activities are a wonderful way for a teen to feel connected to school. Another student could introduce your teen to club sponsors and members.
