Top Tips for Helping Your Child with their Homework

Homework can be a challenging aspect of a child’s life in school, but a necessary requirement to allow students to pick up other aspects of a particular subject. Helping them through it can reassure your child that they are capable of handling these extra aspects of their studies, with some top tips from this prep school in Guildford.

Tips on how to help your child with their homework child staring down at a notebook with pen in their hand

Break things down into chunks

An easy approach to taking on homework is to break everything down into chunks to allow both you and your child to see clearly what a question is asking of them. Have a look at each question and see what it is asking your child to look at. Pay attention to how your child handles each question to see where they could use the extra help.

Focus on the easier questions first

Having a look at all the tougher questions can fill a child with dread, so it will be a better use of a child’s time if they take a look at the questions they can easily handle. Once they are past the more manageable questions you can then draw your attention to the trickier tasks.

Keep things positive for your child

Even if you and your child can’t work out a question being asked of them, it’s not the time to bring down their feelings. It’s time to encourage your child to think outside the box a little bit and remain positive where they can. Some children do struggle in areas and it’s very normal to experience, so reassuring them that they won’t fall behind because of their homework is a nicer approach.

Make time for your child to work on those weaker areas

Some homework submissions are going to be harder than others. This is when you can review the homework and have a look at where your child’s weak areas are. Make the time to help your child in these areas where you can, and build that confidence to tackle those tougher areas as they encounter them.

Homework can be tough, but it is designed to direct students to the next part of their studies. So long as your child has someone there to help them should they need it, their homework sessions will soon be a breeze.
