and details of what teachers want are more complex.
But even if you can solve your child’s homework problems, educators say not to. It’s better to help kids become self-motivated and solve their own problems.
When your child has trouble with homework, ask questions like these:
• Do you have the directions? Do you need to reread them?
• Do you understand what you’re supposed to do?
• Did you read the background material?
• Is there other information you need to complete the work?
• Do you need a calculator, compass, atlas or other tool?
• Do you understand all the words or terms?
• Do you need to review material that preceded this?
• Did you miss a class where instructions were given?
• Should you call a classmate?
