      *Parents can help by asking teachers early in the school year about homework
      policies. For example, inquire about what books they will be using, what
      kinds of assignments will be given and when the teacher is available to
      answer questions.
      *Set a family "quiet time" when you and your children can work together on
      homework, reading, letter writing and playing games.
      *Assume your children will have studying to do every night.
      *Younger studnets often need extra homework help. First, make sure the
      child understands the directions. Do a few problems together, then watch
      your child do a few. When your child is finished, check the work. Praise
      right answers, and show how to correct mistakes.
      *Avoid doing your children's homework for them. Teachers need to see where
      your children are having trouble.
      *One of the most felpful things you can do is to show your children you
      think homeowrk is important. Many children today do their homework while
      their parents are at work. When you are at home, ask to see your children's
      homework, and discuss it with them. Ask questions and be supportive.
