• The Do’s and Don’t of Homework

    Follow these Do’s and Don’ts of homework with your kids to make the most of their learning time at home:



        Provide quiet study time in a well-lit place.


        Be available to encourage, praise, advise, and supervise.


        Monitor your child’s understanding of concepts and skills.


        Check work for accuracy, neatness, and completeness.


        Provide related home-learning experiences to reinforce concepts learned at school.


        Cooperate with and be supportive of the child’s teacher.


        Help your child make education a top priority during his/her school years. Show by example that learning can be exciting and fulfilling.


          Do the child’s homework for him/her.


          Make excuses or allow the child to make excuses for incomplete or sloppy work.


          Change, criticize, or belittle a teacher’s assignments. If there’s a problem, talk to the teacher.


          Allow the child to skip an assignment he/she doesn’t like.


          Fill the child’s life with so many non-school activities there is no time left for homework or play. Relieve the child of responsibility for getting homework back to school on time.
