They begin thinking about what they want to do post-secondary. They do all this while balancing an extra-curricular life and a social life.Balancing the various segments of life is part of being a successful high student.It’s even more critical to have a set time and non-distractible place to study and do homework. Homework is practice of the skills and concepts taught during class.Let me say one thing about homework; some schools no longer count homework for a grade. It’s much more prudent to say, “I don’t get it” on a homework paper, knowing you can ask the teacher to clarify the next day, than to say “I don’t get it” on a test or quiz.It may be that you and your family may need to alter patterns to balance study time with the activity.
