Know the author's background. This person needs to have a background in education and, ideally, should be trained in the latest educational methods, like brain_based teaching/learning. I personally would never use any materials with my child that didn't specifically mention being "brain_based." I am not talking about just "research_based." I see more and more sites claiming to have research_based materials, but what I find is definitely NOT based on how the brains actually learns. Brain_based learning is relatively new in the educational world, but most worksheet sites and materials are using old science or, more often, no science at all.
Never allow boredom to set in. We know now that when learning is fun and exciting, the brain is actually growing many new dendrites that make connections with many other dendrites. The more connections the better. We also know now that boredom destroys dendrites. Small children quickly become bored with worksheets, especially skill and drill worksheets. Yet another reason to avoid skill and drill worksheets like the plague. Never allow your child to use a worksheet unsupervised. Some parents use worksheets to provide time to fix supper or add another load of laundry. Unfortunately, while you aren't looking, your child just might have practiced a mistake several times. The time you thought you saved isn't nearly as much time as it will take to fix that mistake.
