In order to maximize your child’s learning experience, you must be able to detect signs of struggles and frustrations. Learning can’t take place if a child is angry or upset over an assignment.
Meet with your child’s teacher regularly to discuss any problems you might observe and co-develop a plan of action to remedy the situation. Try to answer the following questions about your child’s study behavior: How often is my child struggling with homework?
