GRF PARENT SUPPORT TEAM (PST)

The GRF Parent Support Team is a district-wide group of parents, teachers, and administrators working together to support the parents and students of GRF with mentorship, resources, and family events.

PARENTING RESOURCES

RESPONSIBILITY / ORGANIZATION

Being more organized/responsible helps a student…

  • Feel more capable and less stressed.

  • Create strong routines that help them feel safe and secure.

  • Work as a better team with their parent(s)/guardian(s), friends, classmates, teachers, administrators, etc.

  • Develop life skills for success!

Parenting Tips for helping a student be more responsible/organized…

  • If your student SEES something, they are more likely to REMEMBER it. Use checklists, sticky notes, school planners, phone reminders, or even an app (Remember the Milk is a free to-do list app for older students).

  • Keep it simple.

  • Work WITH your student–as a team–to develop a plan.

  • Show your student ways that you organize your own life or use the skill of responsibility.

  • For Junior High/High School students, ask:

    • What are your ideas to be more responsible/organized?

    • How can I support you on this goal?
