Instead of turning on the T.V. or video game, try providing more creative and educational activities.
Having a closet or area in your home that is filled with art supplies, educational games, engineering projects, and science experiments will give them endless opportunities to learn and open a door to fun educational discussions.
Finding the right time to tackle homework can be a tricky task.
Some may need a mental break with a snack or short time of physical activity or relaxation. While others may need to get it out of the way so they can enjoy the rest of their evening.
You might find that some may find it easier to concentrate if you are right there with them, while others may need to be left alone.
Once you have found the right balance and routine, homework can become a more enjoyable task, and even become a bonding time.
Whether you sit with your child, or give them space, you can always show interest in their education by checking backpacks and folders to keep them accountable.
