  • Homework Station

    How are you doing on your back to school shopping? Do you have backpacks, lunch boxes, and a new outfit to send your child back to school with? Super! Have you thought about what happens when they come home from school though? It’s time for homework to resume! The kids might not be thrilled by that, but if you create a space for them to work in that fits their needs, that is half the battle. Doing homework on your bed might seem good enough, but a proper work space can make all the difference. They need dedicated space where they can open their books, lay out their pens, pencils and calculators, and focus on the task at hand (vs the distraction of TV, video games, cell phones and other electronica). The faster they can get their homework done, the faster they can get back to what they really want to do – Play!

    How to set up a child’s workspace

    • choose a child-sized chair and desk for them to work at. Ensure that it will have enough space for all of their homework essentials, like books, computer, lighting (if necessary), and whatever else your child might need

    • remove distractions like televisions, gaming systems, and electronica from the area
    • make sure that they have any materials they might need handy, like pencils, rulers, erasers, extra paper, etc.
    • provide sufficient lighting for the task at hand

    • locate the workspace in a handy location, so that you can help out as necessary
    • if a computer is part of your child’s workspace, set up parental controls to ensure their cyber-safety while surfing the net
    • set up rules about when homework will be completed. Will it be immediately following school, after a snack, when you come home from sports practice, after dinner, before bed? ¬†Whenever it is, is up to you, but making sure there is enough time to complete any assignments will help your child to succeed in their school careers and set up good lifelong scheduling habits

    • make sure that the space is your child’s own. Let them add some finishing touches that make them feel comfortable and that they own the space, whether that is photographs, a special trinket, or picking out their own bulletin board

    Remind children that homework is part of their schooling and it will help them in the long run. Having a space to do it in, is key. It is one step in helping them do the best that they can and will get them farther in life. Ultimately it is up to them, but starting them on the right path today is something you can help them with, and they take that into the future.
