Helping Your Child with Homework published on

Authored by U.S. Department of Education

Homework has been part of students’ lives since the beginning of formal schooling in the
United States. It is important because it can improve children’s thinking and memory. It
can help them to develop positive study skills and habits that will serve them well
throughout their lives. It can encourage them to use time well, to learn independently and
to take responsibility for their work.
But helping children with their homework benefits families as well. It can, for example,
be a way for families to learn more about what their children are learning in school and
an opportunity for them to communicate both with their children and with teachers and
Your interest in your children’s education can spark their enthusiasm and lead them to
understand that learning can be rewarding and is well worth the effort. We hope that you
and your child find this booklet helpful
