Another important thing you must do as a parent is ensure that you are helping them with their homework. Make sure that every night they get homework, they spend time away from their friends and the television and sit down to concentrate on their work. This might seem daunting at first, but if you spend time with them and help them when they need your help, you can stress the importance of studying, and how it doesn't have to be as daunting and as boring as they think. Help them with their math worksheets every evening, whether they're working on the multiplication table or division, so that they can continue to succeed during their school career.
A lot of people hate math. They say that it's boring. But don't you know that we use math in our everyday life? When we go to the supermarket and buy something, we use math in counting our change. We are also using math when we check the time everyday. When we ride the bus, pay the bills, building things, estimate the ingredients in cooking, budgeting our daily consumptions and the list goes on and on and on.
