Helping your children with their homework

Most parents now have to face the perils of helping their children through reams of homework and for some it can be pretty difficult as the standards expected from children now are so much higher than 20-30 years ago. However help is out there, firstly if your child is struggling with their homework it’s important to feed this back to their teachers as it’s important that they realise if the work is too hard for them.

If it’s a case of just wanting to understand more about what your child is learning then the internet really is your best friend. There are a lot of websites out there that can offer help following the curriculum standards so that you can be sure that you’re teaching them the correct current way that they will be learning at school.

Most importantly it’s essential to encourage your children to have a go at their homework even if they feel that it’s too hard, and explain to them that there is no harm in getting things wrong. As long as your children have you there to offer support and encouragement to complete their homework on time then you should be able to help them even without fully understanding the subject matter.
