Home Work Guideline for Parents

HOMEWORK: TIPS FOR PARENTS

  • Set aside a quiet regular time.
  • The child should be sitting comfortably at a table.
  • Homework time should include time for oral as well as written work.
  • Oral work, particularly in the early stages of schooling, can consolidate that which is learned through English.
  • Encourage your child to keep books and copies clean and tidy.
  • If your child is working independently be available to help and show an interest in what is being done.
  • Praise your child’s efforts at every opportunity.
  • If working with your child you feel yourself becoming impatient you should stop.
  • Don’t bully or threaten as this will only have a negative effect.
  • If your child is persistently having problems with homework contact the teacher and discuss the difficulties.
  • If, for any reason, homework cannot be done let the teacher know.
  • Much debate has taken place in recent years on the effects of television/play stations etc. on young children.
  • Parents are often concerned about how much viewing time should be allowed.
  • The reality is that most children watch TV or play computer games and, in moderation, this is not a bad thing.
  • Children can learn a great deal and language can be enhanced through television.
  • Don’t allow them to watch unsuitable material.
  • Children in senior classes should be aware of what is going on in the world so encourage them to watch and talk about news items.
  • This will add to their general knowledge and command of language.
  • Do not allow children to watch television while doing homework.
