What advice do you have for kids struggling in school? The advice I have for kids struggling in school is this: Try to be positive and have fun. If you keep forgetting homework set an alarm to your favorite song everyday to remind you it’s time for hw. If you have a test coming up, try to find someone to study with or make a game out of it. You can put post-it’s on your mirror with reminders and funny phrases or jokes to make sure you turn things in. Even using different colored pens to write notes can make things more entertaining. Also, there are a lot of games you can find online for different topics you might be learning. All you have to do is look. These are just some of MANY ideas to try. Learning can and should be fun, it’s all about your attitude!
