Children who have parents that show a marked interest in their kid’s homework and school work as well seem to do much better in terms of grades. Studies have shown that children whose parents play a large role in homework time do better on tests and overall academics.
When my little one was studying Indians I took her to the free Native American museum near us. It was fun and she and I both had a chance to apply all she was learning to what lessons she had studied and would be studying. There are a number of ways in which you can create fun games for your kids, depending on their age level. If you have an elementary school age child then you can easily create flash card games that you can play with him/her in order to help him/her learn spelling or vocabulary words. The same can be done for mathematics. Because of the popularity of the internet today you can also find a wealth of learning games online that you can play with.
Kids also love getting rewards. If you offer some kind of incentive such as ice cream or even extra amounts of allowance, chances are your kids will enjoy doing homework much more. The reward does not have to be big and it does not have to cost a lot of money. It just has to be something that will cause the child to want to work toward it.
For children, everything is more fun when there is some kind of prize at the end. your children to help them learn times tables, grammar and much more.
Most of all remember that your love and support matter!
