Homework Blues

It is a time of the year again that is dreaded by many parents! School has begun, which typically means homework for kids, and their parents. Homework is designed for your child, not for you.  If your child is unable to complete the work, offer assistance but be sure not to do the work.  Write a note to the teacher indicating that your child wasn’t able to complete the assignment.  Homework gives teachers a great way to understand if a child is learning the concepts reviewed in class.

Try this:

To get kids to do their homework, establish a routine and stick to it. Don’t wait until after dinner to start on the work. Speak with the teacher to get an estimate regarding about how much time your child should be spending on homework every night.  If your child is routinely going over that amount of time, speak with the classroom teacher early in the year.
