Bio:What should the home learning environment be like, and how should it differ from school lessons? First of all, lessons at home should be devoid of school tension, so that the child can get up and move around as much as he or she wants. A parent as a teacher does not give marks. At home, it is possible not to know, not to be able, not to understand, not to manage, to make mistakes - nobody will give a "D", not to make an entry in the diary. The main thing is to double-check your child's homework and if you are too lazy to do it yourself, you can ask professionals to do it.

The absence of grades creates an environment of freedom, peace, creativity, safety in which one can learn new things in a situation of support and belief in success, rather than stress. It is in such an atmosphere that a child develops and strengthens an interest in new knowledge and skills, rather than a desire to get a good grade at all costs.

Another benefit is that home lessons can be tailored to a child's individual performance. Some children are characterized by so-called episodic performance, in which a child can hold their attention on learning tasks for 7-10 minutes and then be distracted, giving their nervous system time to recover. A five-minute break to rest and the pupil is ready to continue learning. At school there is no possibility to provide such breaks for each pupil, but at home parents can arrange an individual study regime for their child, taking into account the peaks and troughs of their performance. The individual approach is particularly useful for children who have difficulty getting used to school, or who are hyperactive or over-anxious.

If you decide to help your child with their homework, it is worth having the patience and imagination to turn it into a fun way of communicating and learning, which is truly enjoyable and beneficial for the child and for you. Imagine that you are going on a difficult journey together from "I can't, I don't know, I can't" to "I can, I know, I can! And the main role does not belong to you - you just accompanied a brave little traveler, but observe, guide, help much more difficult and responsible than to do yourself. So you will need more stamina, strength, confidence in success than a child. To make your mission easier, here are some basic rules for organising individual help for your child at home that can really do them good, not harm.
