How to help your child, high school, and you stay connected

insightful time quote
Time: teach yourself how to master it and then teach your child(ren) or nieces or nephews.

 

How to help your child, high school, and you stay connected.

Assumption: Your High School child(ren) receive daily email from school and other sources.

Email will eventually become obsolete in it’s current form, but until then, maximize your child’s effective and efficient use of this mainstream communication tool.

Set up structure and process, like any world-class business does, to deliver great results without taxing time, resources, and energy.

We review our 11th-grader’s emails before dinner and use four categories to help us manage school-life’s buckets:

  1. Progress reports from teachers and staff emails
  2. Calendar and event scheduling emails
  3. Emails requiring a decision
  4. Emails that inform, inspire, and educate

We started with this and know it may change and or morph.

#Attitude

i am taught attitude about personal organization and simplicity by others who become great examples or stern warnings.

This is also how we teach others who are watching us.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Are You?

So it’s like this…

Fed Ex delivery location
Fed Ex left the package on the chair rather the nearby covered front porch.

Package on the right chair arm, and the covered front porch is close.

So it’s like this…

What if…

Fed Ex delivers a package in a cardboard box and leaves it in the driveway. No big deal right?

What if it rains, what if the residents are away for a few days? What if…

What if the driver would have walked a few more feet and placed it by the front door, under the covered porch?

In an earlier post today about everything happens for a reason the lesson is clear:

This is a first world problem. Maybe the driver is going through some sort of personal hell. If it would have been damaged or stolen, it is replaceable. Let go of how it was handled compared to how you thought it should have gone down.

i learned to grow my patience with imperfection.

Because it’s what i hope other’s will do with my imperfections.

This is one of five daily posts i write. Today’s other four posts are hiding something.

The issues and challenges that occur daily, endlessly.

Teaching a 14-year old to wire his brain to make every problem an opportunity or a challenge. And that bad things happen to everyone, all the time.

Our only chance of thriving is to fight like hell.

To get and stay in fighting shape: mentally, physically, spiritually, career-wise, and at our home base.
