Go Through Your Child's Papers Together

As your child gets older, you may be tempted to step back from checking her backpack or reminding her to show you her weekly folder. Instead of giving her complete autonomy, though, make a point of going through her papers with her at least once a week. This will give you a sense of how she's doing on her schoolwork, as well as the opportunity to recognize any areas that need more attention. If you find evidence that she's struggling with a particular topic, review the material with her and share any concerns you have with her teacher.
