Quiz for Parents

Quiz for Parents

Boston Globe Archive
 
During the school year, it's the most-asked question in American homes, echoed by millions of parents, five days a week: "How was school today?," usually followed by "Is your homework done yet?" And the inevitable, droning answers: "Fine." "Nope."
At this point, some tired families acquiesce; others brace for homework meltdowns; and still others jump in and overdo it.
Most parents know it's important to participate in their children's education, and scores of studies from major American universities support the finding that kids do better in school when their parents are involved. But what does getting involved actually mean? What's the best way to connect to your child's learning with the little time you have? How do you help your kids succeed in school without getting too close to the process?
While our children soon will sweat through their initial benchmark tests, it's only fair that parents take their own back-to-school quiz. How do you score when it comes to being involved in your child's education? Take this test and see.
