Parents not helping kids by completing homework

Parents not helping kids by completing homework

There are many parents who think that by completing homework on a child’s behalf, they are doing their child a favour. However, teachers recognise work that hasn’t been completed by a child, especially when it is free of spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. Homework is given for a variety of reasons, including teaching the child to keep to deadlines. Parents who take over their kid’s homework may also be undermining their confidence, making them feel that they are inadequate as they don’t have the necessary skills to complete a project.

Kimberley O’Brien, child psychologist, advises that allowing a child to complete homework themselves, even while making mistakes, gives them a sense of achievement and pride when they have done something well. Improvement also gives parents the chance to heap on the praise for putting in the effort required to complete their homework on time, rather than concentrating only on results.

Website owners don’t have the benefit of time to improve their spelling and grammar. Web content which is poorly laid out and grammatically incorrect will result in website visitors dwindling. As content writing has to be done on a regular basis, a lack of time can be a disadvantage, which is why content outsourcing is beneficial to many companies. A UK copywriting agency that employs freelance writers directly will be able to provide a constant supply of fresh content, from a writer who has English as their first language. A reputable company will have in house editors who check all submitted writing for errors. This is one of the occasions when outside help is essential, and will maximise revenue.
