As a parent, you play a vital role in educating your child. Homework is part of it.


Does the word "homework" terrify you?


You're not alone. The word can terrify some parents, but stay calm, because this is easy as long as you follow a few simple guidelines...


Just remember that homework has value and you don't have to know the subject to help your child.


That's right! You don't have to know how to write an essay or do math to be helpful to your child.


But completing an assignment isn't the only goal of homework.


The value of homework goes beyond school. Completing assignments can help your child develop good habits and attitudes that can encourage a lifelong love of learning and be organized for later jobs and work.


To help your child, you have to talk with your child and communicate positive behaviors, values, and character traits. If you do that, you'll go a long way toward being helpful.


But, just what do you say and do to communicate these positive behaviors, values and character traits?


This isn’t always easy, and that’s why I wrote a Homework e-book, to give you specifics about how to assist your child---the what for's and the how-to's.


Here are some of the topics I cover in detail---with specific instructions of just how to do each one---that will help make homework a positive event:

  • Common questions parents have about homework
  • Why teachers assign homework
  • Does homework really help children learn?
