Have a comfortable, quiet, well-lit place at home for your child to study. Monitor homework Help your child create a schedule that makes homework a part of the daily routine. Be available to help with difficult assignments, organize work, and prepare for tests. Be positive and encouraging. Celebrate achieve- ments and praise your child for extra effort.
