Do your homework while your children do their school assignments. Balance your checkbook, pay bills, fold laundry. Show the attitude that "We're all in this together." Let them know that your are there if they need you. When they do ask for help, play detective. Help them search out the answers to their questions. Go to the library together and show them how to find the answers they need. Many families find a weekly trip to the library an inexpensive, fun, family activity. By teaching them how to research for answers, you teach them a life skill they will use forever. When you are all finished reward yourselves with a game or treat.
