How To Get Your Kids To Do Their Homework

September 28, 2015

It’s always tough getting kids to sit still and do homework.  Here are some tips and tricks to help them (and you!) breeze through assignments.

  • Let the kids relax after school and give them an hour to unwind and grab a snack.
  • Establish a routine and set a time and place for homework each night.
  • The earlier you start homework, the better.  Kids get tired later into the evening and won’t want to complete their assignments.
  • Reward them!  If they make it through homework time without complaining, give them a treat.  Use incentives to help you kids want to do their homework instead of forcing them to do it.
  • Make homework fun!  Use play money or pieces of candy to give kids a visual aid and keep them engaged.
