    School has changed so much since I've attended over 18 years ago. I beleive that staying in contact with the teachers and knowing how they teach them is a great way to be able to help your child with their school work. I like to have my kids tell me how the teacher taught them. That lets me know that they at least understand whats being taught to them. I also have a tutor for the things that are beyond my understanding.

    I homeschool my daughter so I have her read the work and then we go over it to make sure she understands. Then she gets a test or worksheet. If there are errors, we go over them. When she was in school, I would help her and she expected the answer. I would help her with the steps and help her find where the answer was but she had to get it by herself. She needed to learn how to find the answers without me telling her.

    My son and I have established a really good routine for homework and study, plus we do plenty of extra work for fun.  Early on, I established the idea of learning being fun, and it stuck.  He does all the typical kid stuff, too, so it's not as though he spends all of his time with his nose in a book, but he does like learning new things, which keeps him ahead o the curve in school.
      My wife and I keep in touch with his teacher, as well.  We're on a first name basis, and we volunteer when we can.  Being involved like that is the most important thing of all.

    I always lead by asking questions that help them discover the answer for themselves.

    I wrote a hub about helping kids when they are frustrated and hit the wall:

    Helping Your Child Go From "I Can't" to "I Can"
