    Default promote the result

    Is the following sentence acceptable?

    Parents should also show consideration for kids, and compulsorily control their time on surfing the Internet, so as to promote the result of their schoolwork.

    "Parents should also show consideration for their children, and compulsorily control their time on surfing the Internet, so as to promote improve the results of their schoolwork."
