Back to School Prep for Tech-Savvy Students

Clean House

Be sure you and your kid are on the same page about the purpose of the tech gadgets she currently has—and how she plans to use them in the new school year. Start the cleanup of her existing devices, such as a tablet or laptop full of games, now. Get rid of distracting programs and prepare to dedicate the device to homework. This process should start early so your child has time to understand your expectations for the coming year.
