Homework… Struggle or Success?

By October 1, 2019Uncategorized

 

Let’s talk about homework. Sometimes, the biggest struggle of the day is getting your child to focus on homework after a long day at school… understandably so! Who really wants to go home after a long day of school work, just to do more school work at home? We want to provide you with a few tips that might help aid you in navigating this process! 

 

Snack Time  

Everyone loves a yummy snack! Not only is it a great way to incorporate a break, but food keeps our brain functioning. Providing a healthy snack for your child can also help show them that making a healthy choice gives your brain the power to keep learning and working!

 

A Productive Work Space

It is important to provide a clean and creative workspace for your child while they are doing homework. Working around clutter can create a distraction for anyone, especially young children. Sometimes, the hardest part about homework time is keeping your child focused and on task. If they are in an area that is quiet and clean, they are more likely to be productive. 

 

Work Next to Them

When your child is doing their homework, try sitting near them or next to them while you are also doing something productive. Kids have serious F.O.M.O (fear of missing out) and they definitely don’t want to miss out on anything fun. So, while they are doing their work, maybe you can simultaneously do chores or work on “adult stuff” in the background! It will encourage your child to work hard if they see you working hard too.
