- Be an example. Actions speak louder than words, right? If you are trying to tell your teen how important education is, start by showing him. Now is a good time for you to get a master degree – and you can do so easily with an online school.
- Visit college campuses. Go with your teen, even as young as junior high school age, to college campuses and take a tour. Show your child how much fun college life can be. The sooner they start thinking about the fun they will have, the better.
- Encourage education. Always encourage your teen to learn more. Set aside time every day that is specifically designated as learning time. Turn off the video games and encourage your child to read a book.
- Save for education. Make sure your teen knows you are working hard – and saving money – for his college education. If he understands how much you are sacrificing for his education, chances are he will take his schooling more seriously.
