(HealthDay News) -- Homework teaches kids valuable lessons in
independent thinking, responsibility, and pride in
The Nemours Foundation says parents should resist the urge to do
homework for their children. Instead, they should support their
children's efforts, especially in creating the right environment
for homework. The foundation's suggestions include:
Be sure the work area is well-lit.
Create a comfortable space where your child can study.
Provide any supplies your child may need -- such as a
calculator, dictionary, paper or pencils.
Don't allow any distractions such as background television, or
playing video games or talking on the phone.
