Parents & Homework

Here’s an excerpt from an interesting new study on parents and homework (you can read more about it here):

Parents who want to improve their child’s motivation to complete homework this school year need to change their own attitude and behavior, according to a new study by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) researchers.

In the study published in Learning and Individual Differences, BGU researchers found that if parents had a more positive, supportive attitude and communicated the learning value as motivation, rather than focusing on completing an assignment or getting a higher grade, then the child’s attitude and motivation would improve.

This study might provide some “grist” for a good conversation with parents…..
