Doing homework may not seem like the greatest way to spend a Wednesday night, but it'll mean a lot to your kid. Not understanding an assignment or feeling left behind after a lesson can be extremely frustrating, so taking the time to go over his work and explaining complicated concepts to your son is more than just enjoyable father and son bonding time -- it's bettering his life. And don't worry if your algebra skills are a little rusty. You probably remember more than you think you do, and if the square root of X has both you and his mother drawing blanks, you can always call a tutor. He'll remember that you took the time to try.
