Chalk Talk: Helping a Child with Homework
Homework can be a trying chore for anyone. Helping your child with their homework, especially in the elementary grade levels, can be helpful. But how much should you help? First, consider the space they have to work in and make sure it's free from distractions. Then, when helping your child, the key is their understanding. If they don’t understand the directions, try re-wording them in a way your child understands. If it still doesn’t make sense to them, you can give them an example piece where they can see what the instructions are by your following them. Don’t do their work for them, however, as this is something they need to learn to do themselves and their work should help them to understand the material better. When helping your child with homework, be available and encourage and applaud their efforts and successes. This will encourage them even when it is a challenging problem.
