There are many ways for parents to help their children with their studies. Firstly, it is important to be aware of what they are studying and how many hours they should be spending per subject on their homework per evening. If you have any concerns about this you can always consult their teachers for advice.

You should encourage them to study by providing a quiet and clear study space. Homework, coursework, revision and exam preparation can all be stressful so it is important that you are there to offer support in any way you can – from being a shoulder to lean on to supplying them with regular cups of tea!

You should also make sure that they take plenty of breaks away from studying so that they don’t overdo it. Every revision session should be followed by a break away from the books. For example, a two-hour revision session might be rewarded by a 30-minute brisk walk, a power nap, or a tea and chocolate break. is a national database of universities, colleges, institutes and providers of third level and PLC courses in Ireland.
