Tweet I believe parents should set aside a certain amount of time each night for children to study. It doesn't have to be a long period of time. And it doesn't have to be at the same time every night. Children just need to know that parents value study time. Some parents actually use the time to do some studying for themselves.
If the teacher has assigned homework, then this is the perfect time to do that. If there is no homework, there are lots of other ways to study. Review vocabulary and spelling words. Read over notes you took in class. Get a start on that science project or term paper. Read a chapter in a good book. Practice a few math problems that you had difficulty with in class. Start taking notes on the next section in your textbook. Write in a journal about what happened in each of your classes during the day. Make a list of questions for your teachers about things you don't understand in their classes.
By keeping on top of your studies, you relieve a lot of stress and become a better student.
