How you approach the subject of homework says a lot about the value you place on education. Make sure your child understands that you consider homework to be very important. The following tips will help ensure that your child’s homework is always completed accurately and on time. Help your child determine the best time to do homework. Some students want to get their homework done right after school; others want to take a break and do their homework later. The important thing is that you and your child create a schedule that makes homework a part of your daily routine. Your child may ask for help with homework from time to time. Be available to help your child organize work and review for tests and quizzes. Make sure that your child has the necessary school supplies and a comfortable, quiet place to study. Turn off the TV and remove as many distractions as possible. While a call to a classmate with questions about an assignment is acceptable, social calls and other interruptions by friends should not be allowed. If your child has a tendency to rush through homework in order to get it done, insist that you look over all completed homework. If your child is not completing his/her homework, be supportive and encouraging, but insist that all homework be completed accurately and in a timely manner. If the homework seems too difficult or if homework becomes an ongoing problem, talk to your child’s teacher. Students must learn to be responsible for keeping track of their as- signments, completing assignments accurately, and turning assignments in on time. Parents need to make homework their child’s responsibility.
