  • It may not address the actual problems your kid is having at school for instance a parent may limit their child’s social activities to help their children do better in school but studies show that this only helps if social activities were distracting kids in the first place when your child is having issues in school you have to get to the root of the issue to change things.
  • You risk frustrating your kids and making them reluctant to ask for help at home for school work your child may not come with you for help if they think they will only be punished for not doing well in the first place as time goes on this may even turn toward resistance toward school work in general kids can become so frustrated that they may not be willing to try anymore.

  • Yelling can only do so much eventually kids will get used to it that will make them resent behaving well all the more.
  • Because of these reasons yelling can actually have a negative effect on your child’s future grades if the issues remain unaddressed and students feel a greater resistance they are not going to get the help they actually need.

  • Give your kids a quiet space to work this can help your kids avoid distractions and get into the habit of regularly doing their school work it also shows that you are there to help for a bonus create a space that is stocked with the school supplies your kids could need.
  • Habits are not always a bad thing form after-school routines this will get kids into the habit of giving attention to their homework and making sure everything is finished the night before it looks obvious in hindsight but you are teaching your kids to take advantage of the time they are given to prepare for something that always comes in handy.

  • Get involved with your kids’ teachers together you can figure out which factors are causing kids to have problems with their work this may also encourage your kids to think of their teachers as people they can go to for support at the very least it will help you avoid your kids saying that’s not how they taught us in school when you are helping them with their homework.
  • Keep track of your child’s progress this will help you realize which things help them and which don’t it also helps keep you aware of when your child may be falling back into old bad habits or when they are encountering a new problem.

  • Remember that rewards work better than threats positive reinforcement for doing well in school even something as simple as taking your kid to the park can motivate better than the fear of punishment when kids are more concerned about the punishment they care more about trying to avoid getting into trouble than actually doing their work.
  • Try as many learning styles as possible some children learn better visually audibly by doing hands on activities with tutors or even a combination of all of these things we each learn in different ways.
