    Suggestions for helping with homework:
    -Rather than showing your child "the right way" to do a problem, ask your child to explain their thinking
     
    -If a child (and you as a parent) have worked hard on a problem without success, you stop after a reasonable amount of time and ask for help in class the next day
     
    -If you, as a parent, are unfamiliar with the math, you can still help by asking questions such as:
            "Have you done any problems similar to this before?"
            "Can you explain what you do understand about this problem?"
            "What do you think the problem is asking you to do?
