- De-clutter and organize their materials. Mandatory before they try to settle down and work. Limit distractions right from the get go.
- Make a list of what has to be done. A map of what needs to be done is a very helpful tool in staying on track with a homework task.
- Collect the materials to complete the assignment. Again, limit distractions and breaks in the flow of work.
- Know what is the acceptable level of quality for their work. Provide the child with a goal of achievement. Let them rise to a challenge.
These basic skills can really help children master their homework or study times.
