Here’s how to help them hit the books and develop good study habits

  • Sit down with your kids and lay out expectations now, when the school year is starting, rather than waiting until problems arise.
  • Two or three goals is plenty, and you’ll get better results if your child helps decide them.

Ask: What were your child’s stumbling blocks last year?

  • Maybe homework time was running into bedtime, so agree on an earlier start time.
  • Did your child resist reading?
  • Work on ways to make it fun—maybe set up a reading tent under your dining room table.

  • Review your child’s homework goals again in October, and perhaps once more in January.
  • Adjust your plan as you go, letting your child take as much ownership of the process as possible.

Do you help your child regularly? Please tell us how often.
