I think parents should help with homework. I believe this because if the child doesn't understand the material they're learning in class, the parents should help and explain the problem in a way their child will understand so the child doesn't get behind on homework. When a child asks for help they have to communicate with the person they are asking for help from, studies have shown that some kids learn better from communicating and being involved then just sitting in a classroom and watching the teacher talk and not getting involved. Also, if the parent helps to where the child understands, they can practice more problems similar to the ones on their homework to make sure they understand. So, instead of ignoring the question and not getting any practice out of it, they will get help and practice more questions so they do understand and get practice. Studies show that when parents help with homework, it helps the child understand the concepts that they learned in class better which result in a better grade on the tests. Which is why I think that it is okay for parents to help children with homework as long as the child understands the concept after the parent has given help.
