Often, parents place all responsibility on the school and teachers for transmitting knowledge to our children and for everything related to academic processes. But we are much more responsible for these processes and we have the challenge of guiding knowledge in children.

Everything we can teach our children is worth it: to enjoy reading, to compare results, to know the history of the world, to develop skills. Because there are knowledge that does not make so much sense in itself, but as a means to develop skills, so that apprehending the world is easier and more satisfying.


  • Let us recognize that homework has value in the education of our children, and when we believe that it is not, let us discuss it with the teacher, not with the children.
  • Let’s give our children time and tranquility to carry out their homework.
  • Let’s try not to set inflexible schedules for homework. There will be days when children will need to rest a little more before starting work and others when they will be willing to do their homework as soon as they get home from school.
  • Let them work freely . Let us not insist on giving them instructions for what task is well done. Let us give our children autonomy to work and study, as well as the assurance that, if they need us, we will be there.
  • Let’s not ask for more than the child can really do. For example, if we see that there is effort, we should not despair if the letter is not impeccable or if the colors are not the most realistic in a drawing.
  • Let’s try to do our work while the children do theirs. Let’s not wait for them to finish to start ours, because we will be pressuring them to finish soon and they need time.
  • Let us listen carefully to the children’s questions and try to solve all the doubts they have.
  • Let’s observe our children, find answers for them while respecting their individuality . Let’s not fall for comparisons and goals that can destroy their confidence and self-esteem.
