Tip – Asset #23  - Homework: Child makes best effort to do homework

Make the best, consistent workplace for homework that your home allows: comfortable to read and write, good lighting, and no distractions. Do some of your own work at the same time, e.g. pay bills, organize your schedule, plan meals and shopping. If you can’t do your desk chores at the same time, let your child know you're doing your "homework" when you get to them. Provide help when needed, but not answers – questions work well. If you have trouble yourself with a subject, recruit an older child or neighbor to help; sit with them and show your child what a good student are.
