Good Habits for School Success
Date:7/14/2008

NEW YORK, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- MS -- Every student has his or her way of making it through the school year. Some are very studious and regimented, working hard for good grades. Others coast through tests and homework with ease. Still, others prefer more of the social aspect of classes than the actual coursework.

There are certain universal tips and techniques that families can use as a whole to help improve this school year. Here are some ideas to consider, courtesy of Dr. Fresh, makers of dental and hygiene products.

-- Feed the body and the mind. The time-honored cliche that breakfast is the most important meal of the day still holds true. Don't let your kids skimp on breakfast no matter how time-pressed they may seem. Poor nutrition can cause energy levels to sag, therefore having a trickle-down effect on attention levels and classroom performance.

If time is always an issue in the morning, consider whipping up on-the-go meals that your children can eat on the way to school. Yogurt-and-fruit-based smoothies, breakfast bars, instant oatmeal, and so many other convenience items are just some ideas.

-- Put pride in appearance. Although the adage of "don't judge a book by its cover" is certainly something to consider, the fact of the matter is that outward appearance can influence others' perceptions of a person. Encourage your child to always put his or her best foot forward -- advice that should follow through to adulthood and a business career.

Part of projecting a positive outward appearance involves daily hygiene, such as showering or bathing and teeth brushing. Having a fun toothbrush geared toward children, such as the FireFly(R) from Dr. Fresh, can help promote good grooming and hygiene habits. The FireFly blinks for 60 seconds so that kids know how long to brush each arch of teeth (one minute for the top, one minute for the bottom). The child simply presses the button to start the LCD light housed safely in the handle of the toothbrush. Once the light stops blinking, it's time to move on to the other row of teeth.

-- Give organization an overhaul. Organization and school success can very well go hand-in-hand. Consider your son or daughter's personality and preferences. Is he a visual person? Think about color-coding folders and notebooks according to subject so work is seldom confused or overlooked. Is she a budding techy? Invest in a personal digital assistant that she can use to store assignment lists and class schedules.

Also think about yourself as a parent and your role in organization. Create an "in" and "out" system like you might see at an office. Your kids can simply drop in papers that need to be reviewed or signed, then you slip them in the "out" box when they're completed.

These are just some of the many things your family should consider and implement throughout the school year.
