Parents can help their kids do better in school by getting more involved, says a new study. Help with homework and attend teacher meetings
Want to help your children do their best in school? A new study published in the MIT journal Review of Economics and Statistics suggests that a parent’s effort is even more important than the teacher’s or child’s effort when it comes to doing well in the classroom. According to the study, children work harder when their parents are more involved. It may influence teachers’ performance as well. Reading to your kids, helping them with or supervising their homework, attending meetings with teachers, and talking to your kids about their schoolwork can all help motivate your children to perform well at school.
