Should I help my child with their homework?

When it comes to helping your teenager with their homework, it depends on your definition of helping. Are you somewhere in the vicinity also reading a book, modeling the behavior of what you want your kid to do, or are you actually over there doing their homework? I tend to think the latter would not be what I would suggest for you to do as a parent. It's better for you to be in the vicinity, be on hand. If the child has a question, your teen needs some help with something, you can give them some advice, you can find out or Google it, where in the dictionary they can find it, and have them really do the work. At some point in time, it is a good idea for parents to be available, but not really doing their child's homework. That's a no-no.
