Helping Your Child with Homework and Studying

​Probably most parents feel that there is more they can do to help their child with homework and studying. We often remember strategies that helped us when we were in school, but our explanations of them may be vague and unconvincing. When children begin to bring home assignments and notes to study for tests, many parents feel unsure as to their role in this process.

In this guide, we have attempted to provide parents with some tips, suggestions and strategies for helping your child with homework and studying.

Your interest and encouragement are crucial in helping your child develop a personalized set of skills that will be of benefit through a lifetime of learning.
