General homework tips for parents to know

Parents wanting to assist their children in working towards academic success may find the following tips helpful.

• Make sure your child has a quiet, well-lit place to do homework. Avoid having your child do  homework with the television on or in places with other distractions, such as people coming and going.

• Make sure the materials you child needs, such as paper, pencils and a dictionary, are available. Ask your child if special materials will be needed for some projects and get them in advance.

• Help your child with time management. Establish a set time each day for doing homework. Don't let your child leave homework until just before bedtime. Think about using a weekend morning or afternoon for working on big projects, especially if the project involves getting together with classmates.
