Being attentive toward your child’s schoolwork emphasizes that school is important to you, which means it will be important to your child. When they want to share something that happened at school that day or talk about a test or project, be sure you make time to listen.
It’s tempting to do the bulk of the work when your child has a special project or assignment, but this really defeats the entire purpose of schoolwork in the first place. Make sure you’re helping, not taking over.
Be patient with children when they struggle with certain subjects or classes. Things don’t always come easily even to the brightest of students. Make sure they their hard work is the most important thing, not just their results.
