Effective Study Skills for Parents

The following guidelines may be helpful for parents of day students as they monitor

their sons’ homework completion each evening:

  1. Have a set time and place for working on homework and stick to it consistently.
  2. Do not allow for distractions by social media, television, or other electronic diversions.
  3. Begin with the most difficult subject.
  4. Do not leave test preparation only to the night before the test. Begin studying and preparing several days in advance.
  5. If no written homework is assigned for a given night, spend some time reviewing notes or other materials from that class.
  6. Develop a written daily and weekly “to do” list of items that includes the due dates of any future assignments.
  7. It is best for parents to check on their sons periodically during homework time and check that all homework has been completed.
