    Default Homework- do you sit with your child?

    So when they're grade 1/2/3, in other words still little, do you sit with them while they write their homework? Or do you only come if they need help? Or tell them to work it out for themselves?

    I sit with him, hes in Grade 2. But he has to read and comprehend what the homework is about first and then ai steer him in the right direction (not give the answers) if hes stuck.

    Hes better at Maths than I am already tho :P

    My girls sit at the breakfast bar whilst I cook dinner, it is a routine since they first started bringing home work. This way I can help them when they need it, but they need to try on their own as well. We don't get home till 5:30/ 6 o'clock, so this has always wroked for us. Home readers we lay in bed and read.

    My daughters don't have readers anymore but still go to bed and read before falling asleep, as they have grown into book worms.

    My little guy doesn't do homework yet, but when he's old enough I plan to do similar to Bindi. I want him to be used to the idea of sitting at the table to do his homework while dinner is prepared rather than watching telly like my sister and I used to .

    Default Homework- do you sit with your child?

    At the moment DD (prep) only has theory homework for her piano lessons. I do sit with her and help her because it is hard conceptually (clefs, time signatures etc) and if she gets too frustrated and discouraged she won't do it.

    When she has school homework I won't sit with her because she won't want help. At the moment she loves doing worksheets I get off the Internet and prefers to do them herself without help.

    DD goes to the study to do her homework, (grade 2) and if she does not understand something she calls me, and I come explain then leave.
    I want her to be independent in doing it. Maybe I'm being to tough or mean
