How to Establish a Homework Routine for a Child

By Pooja Sharma Subscribe to RSS | January 14th 2012 | Views:

If you are a parent and if you dread your kid’s homework, then you are not the only one. Homework isn’t just a subject of dislike for kids but parents too. Working parents, especially mothers find it difficult to deal with homework hassles after an exhausting day at work. For kids homework has just become an additional burden and they find it hard to complete their school assignment without their parent’s or tutor’s support. In order to get your child do the homework, you need to think of ways to simply this daily’s herculean task. So instead of giving lecture, focus on ways how you can improve homework skills of your kid. Convey to your child and make him understand completing homework is not such a difficult task. Boost his motivation levels with lots of encouragement.

Set Daily Homework Time

As your child moves on to the higher classes, his homework pressure increases. That’s why, it’s important to inculcate homework discipline in children from the very beginning. Good time management at home especially after school hours is very crucial. Parents must plan child’s schedule in a way where homework tops the priority list. Set homework time-table according to the subjects in school. Select topics that are difficult and require more hours, accordingly provide more time to that subject. Explain to your child that difficult tasks will take longer, so they must begin them well before the deadline. Also, it will give them time to work through any problems and will allow them time to return to the teacher and ask concern questions, if there is something they don't understand. Set targets for revisions and exams. This way it will clarify and simplify your child’s homework routine.

Break time

Don’t overexert your kid with homework. Give him a breather. Prepare homework schedule in a way which allows him to take 10 minute break after every hour. This will refresh his brain and make him more alert when he returns back to his homework. Let him go on a walk or serve good snacks. Allow him to talk a friend or play for a while etc.

Provide incentives for following homework routine

Let your child know that if he will follow homework routine religiously, he will have access to privileges. Reward or praise him whenever he completes his homework. For example – you can say- “Once you are done with your homework, you can play videogame with your friend” etc. Disallow him to leave his homework pending for later. Even if he doesn’t follow, don’t take away rewards for more than a day, as your child will have no inducement to do better next time.
