Homework has been controversial since forever, with some families and teachers feeling like it is an unnecessary impediment to participating in life learning and others feeling like it is a necessary evil that aids in learning. Regardless of your family’s stance on homework, it is unlikely to go anywhere. If you don’t plan on converting your child to home schooling, the following are a few ways to help with their massive homework load that will actually be effective.
Give Your Child Space and Time
It can be tough to concentrate on homework when there is noise and activity going on, or when your child feels pressed for time. Provide a quiet place in the home where your child can do their homework without distraction and avoid putting unnecessary time constraints on them. Your child may not be the best at time management, so put rules in place about doing homework before doing other things if needed.
