You Are More Important Than Any School… Homework Parent Helping Son

Are you aware of how important you are? A study shows that parents who support their children do MORE than good schools to boost children’s exam results. The study involved more than 10,000 teenagers across the USA. The study found that children do best when parents:

  1. “invest time in their children,
  2. check homework,
  3. attend school events, and
  4. let kids know school is important.”

Other lessons from the study: play with your children more, and talk with your children more. BBC News reported on all this here.
