Top Signs of Trouble in Seventh Grade


Your seventh-grader is entering a period of change on all fronts. She is on the threshold of becoming a teenager, trying to determine who she is and what she can do separately from you. To navigate this year successfully, your child must learn how to balance academics and social life and how to have confidence in her academic abilities.

Your child may have trouble if she's not able to:

  • Establish a feeling of belonging within a group.
  • Appreciate her own individuality.
  • Avoid risk-taking behaviors.
  • Complete and turn in all assignments in a timely fashion.
  • Accept responsibility.
