Intro and house rules

Image via: LearnAirbnb.com

I have been a writer for over 6 years and one subject that I have stayed away from writing is anything on parenting. As we all know there is no one way to parent and it's the same with teaching your children. There is no one way is the right way.

What I write about here is my experiences and my advice but I also want you to know that this is not the only way to help your child to learn, but do try it and if it works for you and your child, excellent but if not, it's good to keep experimenting and try other ways.

As a new Mum to the school system, I have found that a lot has changed since I went to school and I have spoken to many parents who say the same.

Such high expectations can really stress us parents out and can even stress the child. So I am hoping this blog will be a go to and you can read about potential ways to help your child improve.

House rules

  • What I write about is not the only one true way.
  • In addition, every school and even classes in the same school and grade can do things differently, so if you are trying to prepare your child for the next year before school starts be mindful that my blog posts and class materials may not be something your child may receive.
  • Another point, no parent slamming or shaming. There is 100% zero tolerance. If you disagree on the topic, word your comment in a constructive way, or remember if you have nothing nice to say, don't say it at all.


Let's begin!

However, as a parent I have found homework to be worthy. Here is why:
How to tackle homework I try to spend up to 30 minutes every night doing 'Activities' with my children before bed.

These 'Activities' include homework, practicing writing, maths, reading, word games and puzzles and more.

How we do it is we break down our homework over the week. For example, in grade one it is about spelling. We receive about six spelling words a week. In this instance, we would practice to spell two words a day. The next day we go-over what we learned the day before and then add two more words.

On the fourth day, we will do our maths homework.

However, this only takes about 10 minutes of our evening activities. I then ask my child to read his book sent home from school. Another 5-10 minutes.

This gives us ample time to practice other school …
