Parents’ Instruction
 
 

While it is important to help your child if they are struggling, it is essential not to provide them with the answers. Giving the answers enables them to move past a concept before they’ve actually mastered it. It also discourages them from proceeding independently. Instead, ask prompting questions that will help them solve the problems on their own..

  • What kind of questions can I ask?
  • What does JiJi need to do?
  • Why did that happen?

  • How did you get that answer?
  • Why do you think that was not the right answer?
  • What will happen if you click on ________________?
