If you’re doing the dishes or reading the paper nearby, you will be available if your child needs help.  If your child misses more than a day or two of school, try to get some work for him/her to do at home.  Attend all open houses, parent programs, and parent-teacher conferences. You’ll learn about the subjects your child is studying, and how to help your child succeed.  Make it a rule that, after dinner, all homework must be completed before your child is allowed to watch TV, play video games, or talk on the phone.  Homework can sometimes be challenging, and your child may at times become frustrated. Stay calm, and help your child work through difficult assignments.  Be positive and encouraging, and praise your child for work well done. When giving praise, try to be specific. For example, instead of “This is a great paper,” you might say, “I really like your description of the house and the yard.” It’s very important for students to feel competent and capable. Work with your school to make sure that your child is successful! WOODBURN PRESS ©Copyright Woodburn Press LLC all rights reserved This digital publication was presented by:
