Homework doesn’t have to be stressful if you create the right environment … here are a few more tips to consider…

Suggestion 4:      Create boundaries that work for you and your child.  Again, be consistent and stick with it.  If your child realizes that no TV or video games are allowed until homework is complete, then the motivation to finish is greater.

Suggestion 5:       Support, but do not undermine.  Assisting with homework is one thing… doing it for your child is another.  It’s easy to get swept up in the moment and simply provide the answer.  It’s easier than the process of explaining, it’s faster and often, when your child is frustrated, it’s natural to want to ease their pain.  But doing it for them only undermines the learning process and it also sends the message to the child that they are not capable of learning.  Helping them find the answer shows them that they are capable and teaches them the process of learning.

Exercise is also a plus when it comes to helping with focus.  The Martial Arts provide a great platform to burn off energy, learn techniques for focus and self confidence and learn the valuable skills of self defense.

If your house is a “homework battle zone”, here are tips 2 & 3 that might make at-home assignments easier to accomplish, and get the job done quickly, without issue….

Suggestion 2- Tackle the homework beast in the afternoon if possible. Keep your child focused on getting the work done before becoming distracted with recreational activities or leisure time. It’s much harder to get them refocused after watching TV or playing with friends, and having more work hanging over their heads takes something away from their relaxation and leisure time.

Suggestion 3- Breaks are OK – have a snack, stretch, etc. But set a time limit and stick with it.

It’s that time of year… BACK TO SCHOOL and HOMEWORK! Here are a few tips we post every school year to help get that homework schedule organized and implemented to relieve stress in the house!

It’s fair to say that most kids dislike homework. And it’s even more likely that parents feel exactly the same way. Yes, some kids do their homework without issue. But there is a large population of parents/students out there that suffer over the homework blues and even declare a war zone in the house during homework time.

If your child is anti-homework, we will post a few suggestions over the next few days that might make at-home assignments easier to accomplish, and get the job done quickly, without issue.

Suggestion 1: Make sure your child keeps a homework log or agenda. If need be, have teachers initial the entry to verify accuracy. Reward your child for keeping an organized homework agenda with special treats or time on the weekends. Use appropriate consequences if the agenda is incomplete (no TV for one night or video games, missing an activity, etc). The sooner you get organizational habits in place, the easier it will be.
