How to Help Your Child with Homework
1. Find a quiet place to sit with no distractions.
2. Turn off your cell phone!
3. Ask your child to get out his homework, class notes, and text book.
4. Take a look at the class notes to see if you can figure out the steps used to solve the problems. If the class notes are not very clear, then take note of the topic being studied. (For example, is the topic solving equations? What type of equations? Look for key words in the notes.)
5. Ask your child what they remember doing in class.
6. If you too are lost and don't understand the lesson, then you may need to go back to the beginning of the unit and go through each lesson building up to the skill your child is working on. It may take a little more time, but in the end you'll have a stronger foundation and it will all make sense. (Use one of our resources.)
7. Now that you and your child have a better understanding of the concept, have your child try to complete the homework. You could also have your child "teach you" how to solve the problems as he/she completes the homework. Whenever you "teach" the concept, you gain a better understanding yourself!
