a daily family routine with scheduled homework time.
Studies show that successful students have parents who create and
maintain family routines. Make sure your child goes to school every
day. Establish a regular time for homework each afternoon or evening.
Set aside a quiet, well lit place, and encourage children to study.
Routines generally include time performing chores, eating meals
together, and going to bed at an established time.
The American family is the rock on which a solid education can
be built. I have seen examples all over this nation where two-parent
families, single parents, stepparents, grandparents, aunts, and
uncles are providing strong family support for their children to
learn. If families teach the love of learning, it can make all the
difference in the world to their children, says Richard W. Riley,
U.S. Secretary of Education.
