If your child just doesn't know how to get started, above all, he shouldn't just put it off until later. He should start early and try not to judge himself. The laws of physics apply to tackling schoolwork as well: a body that's in motion tends to stay in motion. If a child just begins writing anything, something will happen. Take Breaks Your child will need to take breaks periodically. It's important for him to rest his eyes, keep his blood flowing, and relax mentally. Sometimes a quick walk will re- fresh and reinvigorate his mind-- and get his "creative juices" flowing again. Learn from Experience If some part of the assignment takes longer than he expected, your child should be sure to schedule more time to accomplish it when the next assignment rolls around. If he finds a particular book, person, or idea helps him complete an assignment once, he should keep that resource for the future. Your Child Is Not Alone Students can expect to get occasionally stumped by assign- ments, especially as they advance and work becomes more com- plicated. If your child is having trouble, he should be sure to talk to his teacher about tutorial ses- sions. Your student should check to see when these tutorials are offered. Your child's teacher or high school counselor may also be able to recommend tutors to help him with tough subjects or assignments. Beyond School-Work Stress When students are going through difficult times outside the classroom, it can affect their powers of concentration and mo- tivation to work. If your child is having problems that may be af- fecting his performance in school he should be sure to seek help. He can speak with his school coun- selor or with another counseling professional. Charlotte Winkelmann is the Hays CISD director of counseling and college readiness School Briefs Continued from pg. 3B March is Youth Art Month Student artwork from across the school district will be on display at the Curriculum and Instruc- tion Annex-Academy High School until March 12, after school, 4-5 p.m. The rest of the month viewing will be open during the school day.
