Homework can be one of, if not the, biggest after school battle. But it shouldn’t be. Help your child take responsibility for his/her own assignments. Here’s how.
- Eliminate Distractions- Make sure your child has a quiet place to work, away from the TV and siblings playing.
- Develop a Routine-Have a regular homework time. Make it clear that recreational activites must wait until homework is done.
- Guide But Don’t Do the Work-Give your child ideas and direction, not the answers.
- Set a Timer- Require work to be finished within the allotted time.
