A must-have for parents, here is everything you need to know to help your child with their homework.
Every parent will be familiar with the cry for help that comes from their child when it's homework time. Many parents find themselves having to help a great deal with all subjects - yet with teaching methods having changed so much since their own schooling, it's often the parent who could use a helping hand.
Homework Help for Mums and Dads provides parents with tips, from teachers and other parents, on how to get to grips with each subject and, most importantly, on how to pass that knowledge on to their child during primary school.
From reading to literacy, science to history, this book includes shortcuts and tricks that will make subjects easier to grasp. It even includes tips on homework layout, writing practice, learning habits and on how to make some subjects more fun by thinking creatively about each task set.
Accessible and light-hearted in tone, this book will make schoolwork more enjoyable for both parent and child, taking the horror out of homework.
