Homework is essential to the educational process. It provides opportunities for developmental practice, for enrichment activities, and for development of study skills and self-discipline. Home study assignments are not given to introduce new work, but to reinforce skills which have been taught previously in the classroom. Parents can do their part when they cooperate with the school and ensure that their child completes the assigned homework. Provide the children with suitable study conditions. Reserve a time for homework and turn off the television. Show interest in what your children are doing, but do not do the homework for them.
