Hone in on Homework Habits


Subjects that are tough for your child will take some extra practice. Use good homework habits to bolster kids' learning. Tackle harder subjects earlier on during homework time when your child's mind is fresh, and make sure each of your children has a quiet homework space that's free of distractions. When extra homework efforts don't help, or you don't know how to guide your child through a topic (which is a very common problem for parents these days!), seek after-school help with the teacher or a tutor. Most students need extra help at some point in their schooling, so there is no reason to feel bad or embarrassed about it.
