Homework, alone or accompanied?

Sooner or later all parents find themselves in the situation of having to help their children with their homework, and here the dilemma arises: do we spend hours with our children in front of books and notebooks or do we leave them alone with their school duties? Well, as in almost everything in life, the answer is in the middle.

Both positions have their pros and cons, but in the middle we find the solution. In other words, we must help our children to get by on their own , but for this it is important that we accompany them during their growth.
Next, we will see that at each age the child needs a type of help:
  • Up to the age of 8 a child needs help to organize himself and us to teach him a simple working method . You must learn to assimilate the data of the problems, to understand the approaches and concepts. Although in the best of cases the child can carry out the homework alone, the parents should check the work done.
  • If we do the above, when the child is between 9 and 11 years old, he will have already acquired a working method . Still, there are some children who have not yet achieved a degree of autonomy and still need some help to organize.
  • From the age of 12 it is considered that a child is already capable of organizing and planning homework based on the urgency and the amount of work they are asked to do at school.
Therefore, the role of parents when studying with their children is to teach them to acquire the necessary study habits so that little by little they will be able to carry out their daily work and acquire responsibility, efficiency and little by little gain autonomy.
In almost all growth processes our children need support, in the field of studies the same thing happens. It is true that sometimes due to labor issues, schedules or because we do not know how to develop effectively we cannot help them, in which case it is advisable to provide them with the help of a professional.
