School is back and that means … homework.

Yes, everyone’s favorite!

Set your kids up for success, parents, by following a few suggestions:

  • Make yourself available and help decipher directions, but do not do the work for them. Let your kids make mistakes.
  • Establish a homework-friendly area, a desk or table that is well-lit, well-stocked with supplies and free from distractions such as television or loud music (or loud siblings!). 
  • Check completed assignments 
  • Set a good example by doing your own work – whether that’s reading a book or paying bills. 
  • Congratulate their successes by hanging exemplary tests or assignments on the refrigerator or bulletin board.
