Play learning games that break the habit of sitting in a chair for long periods of time trying to memorize facts over and over again. 

4. Reward them
Rewarding kids for good grades is not new, parents have been practicing this. You can set up a reward system based on this concept. You may not rely on good grades alone, you can reward their progress. The reward system will bring out their love for school and learning.

Encourage your children to make a new friend or two. Ask your kids about their friendships, meet their parents and schedule play dates together. Letting those friendships flourish gives your kids' buddies they look forward to seeing every day at school.
