    Raising Confident, Independent Children

    As kids mature, and need more independence, a parent’s job changes from “fixer” to “consultant,” says Harold Koplewicz, MD, president of the Child Mind Institute. It’s a tricky transition to make, requiring patience, trust and (frankly) restraint. It isn’t easy to watch your kids struggle and make mistakes, particularly when you think you know how to solve their problem or accomplish their task. But in his new book The Scaffold Effect, Dr. Koplewicz explains that giving them room to struggle, and even fail, is crucial to preparing them for adult life.

    We are sharing an excerpt from The Scaffold Effect that focuses on raising children who are empowered to grow. How to best support kids while they struggle isn’t always obvious, but Dr. Koplewicz offers a technique he calls “scaffold parenting,” which prioritizes giving kids just enough supportive structure to encourage them to become confident, resilient problem-solvers.

    11th Grade Survey Follow Up

    In early December, we sent out a survey to junior students and parents, seeking feedback about what future planning needs and questions.  13% of grade 11 students and 25% of the parents responded to the survey. 

    Students indicated they wanted more information on the following topics (from most to least requested):

    1. Financial Aid/Scholarships
    2. Finding the “right” college for me
    3. Career Exploration resources
    4. Standardized Testing information (ACT, SAT)
    5. How do I even start?

    Parents indicated they wanted more information on the following topics (from most to least requested):

    1. How to find the “right” college for my junior
    2. Financial Aid/Scholarships
    3. Career Exploration resources
    4. Standardized Testing (ACT, SAT)

    We also asked about HOW parents and students would like to receive information.  

    • 97% of parents would like to receive Emails
    • 34% would like to access recorded Videos
    • 25% would like to use Google Meet

    We are preparing materials and presentations for students and parents regarding future planning. Please watch your emails & Schoology for more information as each month we will cover a different topic!

  • Out of Storage Space? Let the RHS Construction students help you!

     Sheds for sale    

    Purchase the shed material from the local home improvement store of choice and let the RHS Construction program erect the building.  To meet curriculum requirements, shed dimensions are 8' wide x 12' deep or 10' wide x 12' deep.  Both have 8' high walls that offer over 750 cubic feet of storage space.  Each shed includes a 36" x 36" vinyl-clad window and a 6' x 7' steel roll-up garage door providing ample light and a door large enough for your riding lawn mower, patio furniture, and other seasonal items.  Textured, pre-primed LP SmartSide, and cedar trim allow the owner to paint or stain using your chosen color. The owner selects the color of architectural roof shingles and other finish/material options available. New shed construction will begin in early February 2021 at the start of the Construction course.
