Now, more than ever, families are busy with work, extracurricular activities and other obligations. Not everyone has time to visit their child’s school as much as they would like. Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) Parent Connection offers daily “e-tips” that will provide parents with simple ways to support their children without ever leaving home.
Launched in November, daily e-tips are available through email or by following @vbschools on Twitter or visiting the VBSchools Facebook page. E-tips offer suggestions and activities on topics ranging from helping with homework and encouraging reluctant readers to dealing with social pressure and resolving conflicts. The daily messages also provide ideas on how parents may foster character traits and skills such as responsibility, organization, respect and resilience.
