Watch the free replay of the webinar Fight the Fizzle: How to Maintain Your Child’s Academic Motivation with Ann Dolin, M.Ed. which originally aired Tuesday, August 16th, 2016 and download the expert slides.

Every new school year represents a fresh start. Your child begins the year as bright and crisp as his new backpack, filled with hope, optimism, and energy for the school year ahead. That lasts about two weeks, then you notice his academic motivation and outlook waning. He forgets to hand in homework or study for a test, or acts up in class — and the next thing you know, he “hates school.” The phone calls home follow, and your child ends up feeling demoralized and disappointed. How can you stop this cycle before it begins so that your child is spared the emotional pain of failure?

In this webinar, parents will learn:

> Why and when school motivation tapers off

> How to use rewards and consequences to motivate your student

> How to increase your child’s resiliency when he wants to give up

> How to rev up your child’s learning curve with technology

> How to talk and listen to your kids

> Study skills for high school and college success
