Study Tips For Parents
- It's essential to provide your kids with a good work environment—turn off electronic devices and help them learn to study in a quiet, focused space. Designate a specific area of your house for studying: Try to choose a well-lit space, and keep this area free from clutter so there is plenty of room for books and papers
- Make sure they do their homework or study in that same place every day. This helps them to feel organized and establish a routine.
- Find a time that suites your child best, preferably not too late at night and use that time every day. This also gets them into a set routine.
- Draw up a chart which shows them how they are to utilize their time to study or do their homework, for that day. Make sure they stick to it.
- Keep their homework and study supplies organized and in one place, ready to use so as not to waste time looking for them. Keeping general supplies on hand is important.
Check with your child about his needs. In fact, make it his responsibility to be well supplied with paper, pencils, note pads, notebook paper, et cetera.
- Let them try solve problems on their own before asking you for help.
- In addition to well-structured guidelines and regular routines, kids need the right resources. With 84 percent of kids using a PC to do their homework, making sure that kids have regular access to a computer and the right software is essential to their success.
