Make sure that your child understands that you consider homework to be very important. The following tips can help ensure that your child’s homework is always completed accurately and on time. To keep up with schoolwork and after-school activities, students need to develop good time-management skills. Help your child identify time wasters, such as watching too much TV or spending too much time playing video games. By eliminating or reducing time wasters, your child will have more time for other activities. Some students want to get their homework done right after school. Others want to take a break and do their homework later. Help your child determine the best time to do homework and create a schedule that makes homework a part of your child’s daily routine. Sample Schedule 3:00 – 4:00 Snack/chores 4:00 – 5:00 Homework/studying 5:00 – 6:15 Dinner 6:30 – 7:30 Baseball practice 8:00 – 9:00 Free time before bed Your child may ask for help with homework from time to time. If your child needs help, go over the assignment and try to explain anything that seems confusing. Also be available to help organize work, listen to presentations, and help your child review for tests and quizzes. When your child is working on homework, try to remove as many distractions as possible. For example, turn off the TV and make homework time a quiet time in your household. While a call to a classmate with questions about an assignment is acceptable, social calls and other interruptions by friends should not be allowed. Never do homework for your child.
