It’s not that parents are incapable of helping their children to do well in school. It’s just that most of them don’t have a background or training in educational techniques. But instead of expecting miracles overnight up you need to be patient and give them time. First of all try to distinguish between studying from learning and keep your expectations low. Give your child a proper homework environment thus prioritizing study time. Let them figure things out of their own.

Since not all children have similar temperament, the teaching methods have to be designed by the parents keeping the individual child in mind. Thus, even the parents require training when it comes to imparting the right kind of education to their children in the right way.
