Health Tip: Don't Do Your Child's Homework

(HealthDay News) -- A proper home atmosphere for doing homework is important for learning and keeping up in school.

The Nemours Foundation offers these suggestions:
  • Create an area at home just for homework. It should be well-lit, with all of the supplies that your child needs.
  • Set aside a certain time every day -- such as before a snack or after dinner -- to study and do homework.
  • Minimize distractions during homework time, including music, television and phone calls.
  • Don't do your child's homework. The child won't learn from mistakes if they're yours. But offer help when needed. Praise your child for doing well and trying hard.
  • Be involved in your child's school work, and set a good example by reading and working at home, too.
