How to do the homework? A few tips.

Method number 1. Create an atmosphere for studyingTurn off the music, TV and phone conversations while you work. Some children and adults claim that music helps them with their assignments. It may be appropriate in some cases and for some pupils, but most often the background noise allows them to complete simple tasks correctly. More difficult exercises require considerable concentration in the absence of 'backing vocals'.Method number 2: Nurture autonomyDon't play the part of the teacher, the real teacher at school has already done it. Your job is only to help your child do the exercises themselves. My mother's friend went through not only school, but also the institute together with her son, doing with him (or maybe instead of him) essays, reports, coursework. I was surprised that my son went to work without her and, it must be said, he did quite well, but he was not adapted to everyday life: a grown-up young man cannot go to the grocery shop, buy his own clothes, he does not want to get a car. If at work he runs errands under the guidance of his boss, then in his personal home life he cannot make decisions on his own because he does not know how to run it without someone else's guidance, how to make the right choices. You can also turn to professionals from online services for help. You can understand which one of the services is legit by the reviews. For example Studybay has very good reviews.Therefore, not only appreciate, but also nurture the desire for healthy independence in children, even from pre-school age. Take an interest in the homework your child receives at school every day and talk to him or her about it, finding out how and when he or she is going to do it. Guide the child in the right direction and only nudge them slightly, setting the right course. Once the destination point is reached, your child should receive praise and approval from you, as this will encourage them to do more victories.Method number 3: Teach your child to plan their timeThe role of homework is not only to help your child memorise what they have learned, but also to teach them how to plan their time and how to organise themselves. Plan and make a daily and weekly schedule with your child that includes time slots for both quick and long term homework, as well as leisure time activities outside of school. It is useful (if possible) to alternate between easy and difficult tasks.
