How can i help motivate my child
How Can I Help/Motivate My Child?

  • Set up a routine and stick to it! Elementary students need structure and consistency. Set a specific homework time and spot.

  • Allow students to take ownership of their work. Allow them to do their work independently – provide assistance when needed. Praise them for a job well done.

  • Help them set realistic goals and create action plans – help them follow through.

  • Take an interest in what they are learning in school – extend that learning to family time.
