You and your wife need to be good role models .Encourage your son in all areas of his life.Keep your son involved in a few activities outside of school.Praise your son when he does well.When your son does not meet expectations, teach him to keep persevering.Instill good morals and values.Stay active and involved with your son.Listen attentively when your son talks about everything.If you as parents do not do these things, your son may be influenced by outside forces such as peers and go down the wrong path.:)
