Helping Children with Homework
When it comes to school work, it's important to teach your child habits they can use while working on homework.
That means designating a regular location and time to work on daily assignments.
Some children get right down to work without much encouragement. Others need help making the transition from playing to a homework frame of mind. Sometimes, providing a ten-minute warning is all it takes to help a child get ready mentally, as well as to move to the place she intends to work.
There is no universally "right" time to do homework. In some families, children do best if they tackle their homework shortly after returning home from school in the mid-afternoon; other youngsters may do best if they devote the after-school hours to unwinding and playing, leaving their homework until the evening when they may feel a renewed sense of vigor.

Bridging the Gap Between School & Home
Constant feedback for your child and frequent communication between you and her teacher are necessary components in keeping your child on track, and can make an enormous difference in how quickly positive results are seen.
Other than having a relationship with your child's teacher that allows for open and honest communication, it's also important to talk to your child about his/her school day.
Fostering a positive attitude about learning and going to school is crucial; this can help encourage your child to do well in school and want to learn new things.
