When kids are having homework anxiety, families, educators, and health care providers should work together to understand what’s happening. Start by sharing notes on what you’re seeing and
look for patterns
. By working together, you’ll develop a clearer sense of what’s going on and how to help.
Parents and caregivers: Start by asking
questions to get your child to open up about school
. But if kids are struggling with the work itself, they may not want to tell you. You’ll need to talk with your child’s teacher to get insight into what’s happening in school and find out if your child needs help in a specific area.
