Homework Tips


We all struggle to get kids to do anything after a long day at school. The last thing they want to do is homework or chores. Deciding if your child needs a break is very important. Some kids can come home and go straight to work, while others need some downtime. However, there is one rule I keep in place no matter what.

All electronics must be checked into the "electronic basket." Downtime should not involve electronics. Running around and playing or hanging around with friends and siblings can also be relaxing. Remember the old days when we used to do that? Let them do anything except use their iPads, phones or computer. Essentially, it can’t involve staring at a screen.

Why? Because it is the best incentive your child can have to comply with your requests. So, as the school year starts bring this new routine into action. Good luck and happy parenting.
