As students return to the classroom, many parents of teenagers can take steps to help their sons and daughters do better this academic year.

With right tools and techniques, parents can make a measurable difference in their students’ achievement and grade point averages, basically boosting their earnings.
Here are 7ways parents can help their teenagers become academic stars:
