Make sure your child has a quiet, well-lit place to do homework.
Avoid having your child do homework with the television on
or in places with other distractions, such as people coming
and going.

Make sure the materials your child needs, such as paper, pencils and a dictionary, are available.
Ask your child if special materials will be needed for some
projects and get them in advance.

Help your child with time management.
Establish a set time each day for doing homework. Don't let
your child leave homework until just before bedtime. Think
about using a weekend morning or afternoon for working on
big projects, especially if the project involves getting
together with classmates.

Be positive about homework.
Tell your child how important school is. The attitude you
express about homework will be the attitude your child
acquires.

When your child does homework, you do homework.
Show your child that the skills they are learning are
related to things you do as an adult. If your child is
reading, you read too. If your child is doing math, balance
your checkbook.

When your child asks for help, provide guidance, not answers.
Giving answers means your child will not learn the
material. Too much help teaches your child that when the
going gets rough, someone will do the work for him or her.

When the teacher asks that you play a role in homework, do it.
Cooperate with the teacher. It shows your child that the
school and home are a team. Follow the directions given by
the teacher.

If homework is meant to be done by your child alone, stay away. ( I never ever help her homework, as she said she will ask when she needed )
Too much parent involvement can prevent homework from
having some positive effects. Homework is a great way for
kids to develop independent, lifelong learning skills.

Stay informed.
Talk with your child's teacher. Make sure you know the
purpose of homework and what your child's class rules are.

Help your child figure out what is hard homework and what is easy homework.
Have your child do the hard work first. This will mean he
will be most alert when facing the biggest challenges. Easy
material will seem to go fast when fatigue begins to set
in.

Watch your child for signs of failure and frustration.
Let your child take a short break if she is having trouble
keeping her mind on an assignment.

Reward progress in homework.
If your child has been successful in homework completion
and is working hard, celebrate that success with a special
event (e.g., pizza, a walk, a trip to the park) to
reinforce the positive effort.
