You are the biggest role model for your child. Therefore, when it comes to school matters and homework, you yourself should appear interested and motivated to your child. Depending on the age of the child, it may be appropriate to go through the homework with your child. Nevertheless, you should help him only when he has difficulties, and not take all the tasks away from him. If your child is older, he or she will usually do the homework on his or her own. However, if your child asks you for help, you should assist him or her as soon as possible.
To simulate exam situations and learn effectively, you can also quiz your child. Alternatively, your child can explain to you what he or she has just practiced, because when you not only read what you have learned, but also say it, the facts become firmly anchored in your memory.
