Encourage Your Child to Get Their Homework Done

If you notice your child is struggling to get into the groove of completing homework assignments, follow these tips from The Tutoring Center in Powder Springs.

Keep Your Cool

Children may put up a fight when it comes to completing homework. After a long day of school, they may not feel like doing more school related work. Instead of getting angry and starting an argument, keep your cool and find a way to work things out. Pleading, yelling and punishing may work for a bit, but they won't foster the right attitude in your child. Instead, have a serious conversation with your child and figure out what is keeping them from doing their homework. Try to fix these issues together and create a more positive environment around homework time.

Offer the Right Rewards

Offering rewards for completing homework can motivate your child to complete their homework, but it may not be the most effective. Instead of creating a love for learning, your child will be working towards instant rewards. They may complete their homework but won't care to complete it correctly. Practice positive reinforcement by giving your child feedback that makes them proud of their work. Point out progress and positive grades as well as their commitment to do things well.

Create a Routine

Finding the motivation to do homework after school can be a stubble for most children. To help out your child, create a daily routine they can follow and get comfortable with. Sit down with your child and plan the routine together. Be sure to set aside time for a snack, play time and even a nap. Let your child choose what time they would like to have their homework time, just be sure they stick to it.
