with your kids. Check whether they really get the
lessons and the covered topics. If they haven't, ask

supposed to help them. Ask them what times they find
most comfortable to study and what part of chapter
they want to review.

questions can really help.

study better. After all, they are not in prison, so it is

that may look the same, so they need to know the ways
to differentiate those problems.

appreciate your efforts for it.
