to help you study!
Everybody learns differently. Each parent knows their child
ideas that you can for your children to get the
most out of study time.
Write it down. Teach children
to write down assignments the mo-
ment they are given at school. Time
management is a critical life skill that
should not be taken for granted.
Mummy and Daddy can study too! Make sure
that both of you can chat while you study. Mummy or daddy can
stop in every once in a while to ask how things are going. That way,
if you need help or have a question, they're just within reach.
No TV. The television is a huge
distraction. No matter what channel
is on, it will grab your child's atten-
tion, especially if their homework
assignment is especially challenging
or boring. Even just hearing the TV,
knowing others are watching can
create problems for a child trying to
concentrate. Make it a house rule
that the TV is off during study time.
That goes for mom and dad, too. No
