What are the signs of an autistic child?

Crystal C

She asked what the signs of an autistic child are not a debate. You want to debate vaccinations go to another post. Some of you people are down right rude. If someone chooses not to vaccinate THEIR child then so be it. If someone doesn't breast feed WHO CARES. Stick to the questions or find another post to be a jerk on.

What's a good way to motivate and support children who are struggling to learn a certain school subject?

Crystal C

I think you should find ways to incorporate the child's other interest into the subject being taught. Not only that but set goals and help your child reach them. In the end it's important for the parent to stay positive cause our attitudes rub off on our children. If we get frustrated the child will to.

How much help should parents give their kids with homework?

Crystal C

How ever much it takes to get them, where they need to be. I sit next to my 12 yr old every night and do each problem with him, so I know he's doing it right or I can show him how it's done. In total I spend about 2 hours a day, 7 days a week, doing some kind of homework. Even if there isn't homework, I'm sure there is a test coming that needs to be studied for. A teacher can not teach all of her students , without a parents help.

What is the best place to raise children: city, suburbs, or a rural town?

Crystal C

I think it depends on the state you live in. In the state of MI where I live, I would say any of the above BUT the city. Detroit isn't the greatest right now, so there is no way I would recommended anyone living there. In the end it comes down to (IMO) Schools and the crime rate before I make a decision.

How do you make your child do their homework without it being a hassle?

Crystal C

In order for your child do to well in school, YOU must work with them DAILY. Everyday set up a time (I do RIGHT after school) , where my child and I sit down and I do everything he has with him to assure it's done correct. IMO if you're like "hey go do your homework" they will give tudes, rush through it and end up frustrated with a bad grade. My son works his best when I am right there with him and it's not always fun for me BUT as a parent, some things must be done. *Brag Moment- My son was just nominated as a 2012 Great Lakes Scholar!! I assure if you follow these steps, you will see a HUGE difference , in not only attitudes but in their grades as well =) Best of luck mommas ** The son I speak of goes to a Charter School (the younger ones are homeschooled) If you would like to email me with any questions, I'd be happy to answer chirssee21@yahoo.com
