Help Your Child Learn

Help your child succeed in school by asking a few simple questions

1. Just Ask
Ask your children what's new? What did they study in class today? Don't stop there. Follow up their answers with more questions to get them talking
Ask about what they liked and what they learned. Asking questions shows your are interested in them and that school is important.

2. Quiet Study
Choose a place for home study and make sure the room is quiet during that time. Creating a quiet place goes a long way toward helping your children learn and develop good study habits.

3. Regular Schedule
Set up a certain time of day that is dedicated to homework. Follow up with your children to be sure their homework is complete and turned in on time. If you haven't heard, ask them about the grade they received on a previous assignment.

4. Learn Together
If you want your children to read their assignments, give yourself an assignment, too. When it's time for  them to do homework, take a break and spend a few minutes reading a book, magazine or newspaper.

5. Learn Everywhere
Increase your children's interest in homework by connecting school to everyday life. For instance, your  children can learn fractions and measurements while you prepare favorite foods together.

6. Meet Their Teachers
Meet with your children's teachers to find out what they are learning and discuss their progress in  school.

7. Praise Helps
Praise your children for successfully completing homework. Nothing encourages children more than praise  from their parents.
