How Much Do You Have in Common with ITV’s Loose Women?
Do you struggle to help your children with their homework?
In the episode of Loose Women that aired on ITV at 12:30 pm on the 15th January, a public poll was carried out - ‘Should parents help kids with their homework?’ A resounding 78% of people believe that parents should help their children.
This prompted a lively discussion amongst the panellists who recounted their own experiences and struggles of trying to help with homework. In one amusing anecdote Judi Love explained how one attempt to help with homework led to her being called in her child’s school.
Like many parents she had used the methods she had been taught to help with maths homework but she quickly learned that these methods were not in line with how maths was being taught in her son’s school. This ultimately led to her admitting to not understanding the homework and being unable to support her child’s learning.
Are you, like the Loose Women, struggling to support your child’s learning? Do you need to learn the methods that are being used to teach maths, English and ICT in schools today?
If so, we run a range of courses that are designed to teach parents about what their child is learning at school, the methods that they are being taught and the resources available to help you support your child’s learning.
