Solving the homework battle

November 6, 2009

By Jean Tracy, NW Author, Parent Newsletter

Do your children avoid homework? Would they rather relax and watch television?

Many families rush to sports, music lessons, and other appointments. When there are too many daily events the family feels scattered, out of touch with each other, and cranky. Homework slides. If this happens in your home, involve the children to schedule homework time.

Listen to their suggestions for the following:
•     Will study time be before or after dinner?
•     When to check that the homework is correct and neat?
•     Will TV or computer games be allowed after homework is checked?
•     Will there be rewards for doing the homework well, like game time with you?

Getting children to solve when to do their homework promotes their cooperation. It helps them experience the good feeling of being organized. They’ll get better grades too.
