Study Station

Make sure your child has a place in your home to study. It should have a smooth surface, a chair, and any supplies needed. Some children prefer doing their homework on the bed or on the floor. I wouldn't make a big deal out of where they study as long as they understand there is a special place and time for them to study. This study station can be in their room, den, kitchen table, or any quiet area of the home. The study station should be where there are not a lot of distractions and your child should be guided to keep the area clean and organized. There should be a designated time to study. If there is no homework for that night, read to your child or have them read for 15-30 minutes for a young child and 30-40 minutes for an older child. Always check the homework and make sure it is complete and done correctly. If you see that your child is having trouble with an assignment or concept, help them all you can or ask an older sibling to assist, or neighbor. It is important that you let your child know that homework is vital and they should know that it is expected of them to complete it in a timely manner. If a child is spending too much time on homework, speak to the teacher and see if something can be worked out. Most teachers will assist if there is a problem. You may wish to consider engaging a local tutor who has experience assisting inm the subject(s) in which your child is struggling. Making sure homework is done routinely will make a big difference in the school year for you and most importantly, for your child.
