“Homework” – no one likes to hear this word. Fortunately, appropriately building homework into your daily routine will make it seem less like a chore and more like a task we are motivated to complete.  

When scheduling homework time, keep the following in mind: 

  • After-school break: allow for time to relax and have a snack before diving into homework. 
  • Dedicated homework space: make sure there is a comfortable area free of interruptions. 
  • Provide help: let your child tackle their homework on their own, only assisting when needed. Help with homework doesn’t need to fall on the parents/guardians. Instead try study buddies, homework clubs or tutors.
