Pointers For Parents

Here are a few pointers which parents can follow to positively affect the way their children view homework and school. These techniques work best if used in a noncritical, supportive and caring way

If possible set aside a specific time each day for homework.

  • Don't do your child's homework, but let the child know you are available for help.
  • Encourage your child to take notes about important information in class.
  • Plan a regular reading time for you and your child.
  • Discourage "cramming" for examinations. Encourage regular study habits.
  • If your child is having trouble with an assignment, be careful not to criticize. Find out what the problem is and try to help solve it.
  • Remember, your positive attitude toward homework, teachers, and school can have great influence on your child's success.
