Step 1: Develop a consistent practice schedule
Start out slow, but make sure you set aside a specific time and stick to that schedule as much as you can.
Step 2: Keep practice short
Training at home for 15 minutes a day ensures that you get practice in, without overwhelming your child. Take it one step at a time, and if you keep your practices short you will both be more likely to stick to them.
Step 3: Reward Efforts
Positive reinforcement does a world of good. Encourage your child in a positive manner. Remember to watch everything your child does, encourage a lot, and correct a little.
Step 4: Expect progress
As your child continues to practice you will see dramatic improvement.
Step 5: Make it fun
Encourage your child to teach you the new moves he/she has learned in class. Not only is this a good way to practice, but it also builds self-esteem, and gets you and your kids working together.
