5. Be Available for Help

As difficult as it is and as time consuming as it is, parents need to be available for help. I hate homework as much as the next parent but it is our responsibility to be close by and ready to assist.

I have always taken the approach that I am here to help my children but not do their homework for them. I am much less likely to give them the answer than I am to point them in the right direction. After all, they need to learn what they are doing, not have the answer handed to them.
