Homework time can be as bad as getting your child to clean their room. They’ve been at school all day, and they don’t want to sit down and do any more work. How can you help your child avoid the hassle?
First, establish a specific time each day that is set aside for homework. Having a routine helps kids know what to expect, and they adjust better. Check your family schedule to find a time that can work consistently.
Next, have all items needed for homework in the same area for easy access. If your child uses a computer to type reports, make it available in an easy location. Keep a supply of pencils, crayons, paper, and markers – as well as a pencil sharpener, nearby so that your child isn’t spending homework time looking for supplies.
If your child does not have any homework, have him or her use the time getting some extra reading done. Also, help your child keep track of deadlines for homework projects by writing them out on a calendar or another method of tracking.
Younger children will need help with their homework. It can be very frustrating if they don’t understand something and there is no one to help them. Make sure that you or someone else is available when they are doing their homework so they can get the answers they need when they need them. If necessary, hire an experienced, professional tutor.

Make sure your child does not wait until the last minute to complete his or her homework assignment. It’s a lot of stress for them and for you. I’m sure many parents have spent Sunday night helping their child finish up an assignment they forgot about. And speaking of forgetting, make sure they get into the habit of putting their homework away for school tomorrow. No parent likes the phone call asking them to bring something to school that their child forgot, now do they?!
